Eighteenth Birthday Celebrations

I'm now an adult! WOW and in these last 11 days I've booked to go inter-railing, booked flights, called the tax office (was on the phone for over an hour... dullest thing I have ever done!) and I've opened a savings account. Don't think I'm doing too bad as an adult!

My birthday was actually on a Monday and the first day back at sixth form which was kind of rubbish... I mean double English and double Psychology doesn't really fill you with excitement. But then at lunchtime we went to the pub for my first legal drink! Then I went to another pub that evening with my parents, so I did 18th right! The day before though I did have a family party which was lovely and I really enjoyed it.
The following day I had to travel to Portsmouth for a university interview (where I got an unconditional offer). I stayed with one of my best friends (who I only get to see every now and again) and we went out for lunch then spent the whole evening revising (for her exam) and watching the news (for my interview). It was so amazing to see Gemma though! The best birthday present!

I have then been out a few times into London since and also had a family meal out.

It seems crazy that I am now 18 even though I look like 16... which is definitely reflected by how many times I get asked to show my ID!

  1. Wow, this eighteenth birthday party seems outstanding. Keep up the good work. Even I am going to turn 18 years old and would like to host the grand party at one of the event venues Chicago. I want to use the vintage theme for the bash so it will be great if you could share any fun ideas for me!

Interrailing around Europe...

How do you begin to explain one of the best experiences of your life? Seeing the world (well 5 countries) and making the best memories. This is my journey interrailing around Europe with my friend Amy.

Lets start at the beginning in Paris, which we were lucky to see, considering we narrowly made our train. On your interrail ticket it says to arrive at the station half an hour before your journey, be there an hour before! We arrive in Paris and after wandering up several wrong streets we find our hostel, Which is basic at best and the facilities were indescribable and its probably best I don't describe the shower anyways... Nevertheless we set out for the afternoon in true tourist spirit and saw as much of Paris as we could and getting the most candid photos possible. The Eiffel Tour, the Musee du louvre and the arc de Triomphe all featuring. The second day in Paris was spent in Disney land where Amy achieved her ambition in owning gold sparkly ears. To say this day was magical wou…

The eductaion system: a converation...

After recently finishing sixth form I wanted to reflect on my journey through secondary school; express mine and others views on the education system in the UK, the positives and the negatives. This post includes my views and also the views of others. Also enjoy our leavers and prom photos.

Applying for university...

I applied to university in October 2017 and will be starting in September 2018..hopefully! I was accepted on to 5/5 of the courses I applied to with 4 conditional offers and one unconditional offer, these offers included 2 russel group universities. I did university tests and completed an individual interview as well as a group interview. This was a highly requested post and as the next year are starting to look around universities and complete UCAS applications it was a perfect time to write this post.
Personal Statement Your personal statement really needs to stand out, you need to show that you are excited and engaged in the course but NEVER use the word passion!!! (Everyone uses it and its better to prove you have a passion rather than just stating it.) Its good to do an introduction - why are you excited about applying for the course, show an interest in a particular part and show your knowledge. The second paragraph you could talk about your current courses - what you have enjo…
