Just me

  • Mood:


It appears that it is nearly two months since I wrote a post in here asking for advice on whether or not I should leave university. I'm ashamed to realise that 6 wonderful people left me supportive and helpful comments, and I didn't respond to any of them. My apologies. I remember reading each of them and I was very grateful, but I was not in a good place mentally or emotionally, which is the only excuse I have for not replying.

Anyway, the long and the short of it was that I kept fighting on at Liverpool until the day came when I literally could not force myself to get that train out of Cambridge. I knew then that enough is enough, and this simply was not worth it. So I left.

Since then, I've been living in Cambridge with my boyfriend, trying to find a job. I'm so much happier it's untrue. No regrets, except perhaps that I didn't leave sooner. I know my CV doesn't look great and maybe it never will, but health and happiness have to come first - and if you've no real career aspirations then does it really matter?

But I haven't given up on a degree yet. I've registered with the OU to do a course next year, and it looks right up my street. I'm really looking forward to getting started on that, and finding a nice job so that I wont' be a penniless student, and life generally is looking really good now.

I hope that you are all happily settled in your universities now.
Happy Christmas.
