The future that's right for me

(view of one of my possible universities)

I have always believed that I should do what feels right for me and follow the path I chose. But isn't it just the hardest thing to do to chose the rest of your life. About a year ago I chose that I would apply to uni to do Natural Sciences. It seemed like the right thing to do as it would be carrying on the subjects that I am doing to A level and as everyone told me there would be s of jobs in that area and I was clever enough to do it.

OK fair enough, I wrote my personal statement and sent it off through UCAS and applied to some top universities. I have some offers, I had some interviews and now I have to get the grades. Grades that I realised were probably out of my ability a couple of months ago but right now I have to just aim to get however impossible it may be to do that.

And is this really what I want to do? There are so many choices and I'm not sure natural sciences is what I ever wanted to do. In fact my original idea was not to go to university at all. University is a big step and very expensive if I'm not even set on going. Which means my motivation is dwindling and I'm less likely to get the grades anyway. But maybe that's not such a bad thing!

Because ultimately I believe that being in the right place at the right time will get decide my future. I don't yet know what the future may be but I know that I will take every opportunity that comes my way that feels right for me to be doing. Even if it takes a little longer and the path ends up winding way more than others I will continue to go the way I believe in.

Spring may finally have sprung

April was a really good month

  • I saw Fun. live which was amazing. See the photos from the night here
  • I managed to make a few knitted accessories - I actually sported the knitted bow brooch just yesterday. I'd love to make some more.
  • The cricket season is in full swing so starting to get a few more games
  • I bought my first car and am now starting to drive it. Hope to pass my driving test really soon so I am free to go on lots of adventures.

And now May is here so we should be all over those April showers and looking out for some May flowers. I love this time when everything comes into bloom. I love the fact that now when I go on the bus to sixth form I pass a field of lambs and many wild flowers along the way. This just brightens my mornings and makes me ready for the day. Well, you can't help but smile at frollicking lambs even on a monday morning!
The sun is shining (well at least for now) so I'm off 2 my second cricket game of the weekend and looking forward to a nice relaxing bank holiday tomorrow. I took these photos from around my garden as I just love how everything is colourful and in bloom.

Have a great bank holiday

Sweets to get me through revision

So currently I'm deep into the dark time of revision so I thought I'd share with you some of the cute animal chocolates that are helping me through. Firstly there are some cute little bees and ladybirds which are Lindt chocolate. I also have some white chocolate pigs which my friend made with a mould she has. Such a cute present idea from her.

The pressure is starting to build up in preparation for exams. My last exam is in 49 days (Yes this post was going to be yesterday so I could say it was the nice round number of 50 but hey ho). I'm getting quite scared for them as I know I have to get really high grades to get to uni next year. So lots of motivation and revision is coming up. Hopefully this is going to translate on to my blog where I share how everything is going and my top tips for revision. And finally I would like you all to be my motivators. Leave me a comment to let me know how your revision is going, your experiences of exams and/ or uni or simply to tell me to get on with some work!
