When I Grow Up...

Who knows whats going on with me.. two posts in a short amount of time? aren't you all lucky.

For those of you who don't know.. after leaving 6th form, I have decided that rather than waste a year before going to uni, I would enroll on a college course (after advice from my hairdresser, she may be to thank for on of the better decisions I have made this past year... I also should have listened when she advised against cutting my hair off and dyeing it darker). Tomorrow (or today, because that's when you will get to read this) I will be attending my first day of college.. which scares me a little. I met a few people when I enrolled.. but being inbetween the 16 year old girls fresh from their GCSEs and the 20somethings that have made new decisions with their lives, there aren't going to be to many people I can relate to. It is also worth pointing out this is a female heavy course.. with only one boy at enrollment.. and after spending 2 years in a boys school.. i think it's going to be a bit different to what i have become accustomed to.

Despite my worries and doubts I'm sure all will be fine, I am only in college 2 days a week due to working on a placement for 3 days, plus its only for a year. I have other friends and that isn't the reason I'm there. I'm looking forward to finally doing something relevant to what I want to do in the long term, and sorting out my Uni situation. After a long summer that involved 4/5 weeks of work experience and 6 weeks doing nothing particularly noteworthy, anything productive will be welcomed. I will update you all on how my course is going, what I'm up to and the uni situation (as it progresses).

With most of my friends off to uni, me off to college alone, and others embarking on the world of work.. growing up no longer seems like an option but a necessary task. As sad as it is to wave goodbye to the past, I have a feeling that this is going to be the start of an exciting couple of years for all my friends and me.. and others of you in similar situations.

Look forward to speaking to you all again soon..
