Re: I want to have a serious discussion here...
I understand that "keeping in line" stuff, rather than working towards something. I felt like that all through my last 2 years of school. I didn't feel like I was working towards anything significant, even though I needed to do well to get into Uni. I couldn't concentrate, I didn't want to be there and as a result, my grades dropped, pretty bad. I didn't get accepted onto the course I wanted to do, but I was lucky to be offered an alternative offer, which most people don't get - so I jumped at it. The only thing is though, is that I have to do an extra year in Uni (some sort of foundation course), before I can go onto to the course I want to do.
I start Uni on the 21st of Sept, I enroll this Sunday and I move into my new flat on Saturday (2 days). Looking forward to it. I've already seen the flat, I went round last weekend and it seems OK, nothing great, but it'll do. Right in the middle of Liverpool, which is great, because everything is within walking distance.
