If anyone out there has been reminded literally a bazillion times in the last ten hours that there are quite literally two cao applicants for every one college place,then i feel your friggin pain!
There i was on the bus this morning happily listening to my iPod and ignoring my friend,as per usual, then on comes mister newsman on the ol’ wireless and declares that there has been a 10% increase in cao applications and somehow this amounts to there being but one place for every two aspiring students. Now being as I am a ‘modern’ youngster i chose to discount this since nothing that comes out of the radio is much good anyway(a theory i developed based on my serious dislike of colum and jimjim). So i got to school and all seemed normal,The newspeople’s nugget of wisdom was mentioned in passing but that was it. My theory was seeming to hold up well and nobody seemed too bothered about it,until school actually began and the teachers got involved. Long story short I have now been reminded of the sad facts so very many times that i’m actually starting to become a teensy bit troubled about it,what if I actually don’t get to college at all?? Will my only option be to grow a beard and join the circus?? Now that is a disturbing thought..almost as disturbing as the thought of repeating, i skipped TY for a reason afterall I DO NOT LIKE SCHOOL and if i had to go back for another year i think i might just crack up! So anyone else just a tad worried?
On a lighter note,maths grinds are the best thing that have happened to me since i discovered how to work a tv! they can be pretty expensive but if anyone is struggling with maths then i would highly reccomend them. Maths is possibly the very craziest of our subjects what with all the irrelevant nonsensical stuff we have to make sense of,but it is actually starting to make a itty bitty bit of sense to me since i started grinds. The point of complex numbers and matrices may still elude me but I suppose that’s why we get a choice on the paper,so we can choose things which actually matter.
That’s all for now folks,I have a history project demanding my immediate attention.
