I am forever grateful for friends that keep me grounded. Yesterday was a good day for me. It was impromptu and chill and reminded me that life does not always need to be so carefully planned out. It is okay to relax and enjoy the ride sometimes.
The title was basically my reaction when I found out two nights before going on BBC News. I literally called my mum and hyperventilated down the phone to her. Basically, I was very excited.
I wrote this a long time ago but I didn’t post it for the very reason that it is personal. I do not worry as much now, which is why I am posting it now. But everything I say still applies. Respect my wishes.
I have been making myself seem busier than I actually am in order to ignore the fact that I am going to university in 4 days and 3 nights. But I can’t ignore it – on Sunday the 20th of September, I will be leaving my family home and going to university.
I am going to university! I achieved and acceded the grades I needed to get into my dream university (which shall remain anonymous for security reasons and whatnot). I am so happy today, because it feels like my life is falling into place.
Hello, my name is Paula and I am a First Gen.
