There�s a reason I haven�t posted much not so often, or not at all, in the last few months and it�s down to a singular reason. This reason has sucked up more time than anything. I fully expect my impending exams to do the same thing, so don�t expect a massive HARDISTY BLOWOUT just yet.
As you know, I�m only eighteen years old. I�m doing my A-levels, the stuff you do the year before you gallivant off to university.
Here�s the reason I�ve been hiding in case I got too excited and jumpy up and downy about it. I�m a History boy, if that�s not apparent already, and I�ve wanted to study History at university for a good while now. I got a few offers back quite suddenly after my application but�
I also applied for Cambridge back in October out of trying to see if I could charm my way in. I had to write essays, extra questionnaires and read myself to death. I got an interview for the next month which went swimmingly well in which I discussed topics ranging from apocalyptic fiction birthed by the Black Death and Lyndon B Johnson�s penis. I kid you not. Since then I�ve been panicking, crying and pretty much dying in terms of motivation.
Today I received a letter from Churchill College, you apply to the university and to a college within, stating that they have given me an offer of A*AA.
Quite frankly, I�ve spent the day in locked-in disbelief, shock and a general �glass case full of emotions�.
This is why my time has been diverted to other areas, this is why I have spent so long just cursing at myself and generally being self-deprecating and this is why I have yet to really established any pattern or schedule of content.
But, yes, I did it.
Expect waxings to pick up after the exam period. Early February probably. But for now know that, well, 2013 has started for me in an incredible place.
