    Hey!

    So I recently seen your post asking for tips on personal statements and I just want to ask you:
    How do you feel about shifting from college/sixth form/alternative courses to uni?

    What are you looking forward to? What are your concerns?

    (Too many questions?)

    @lovemimoon I love answering a lot of questions so it's all good! =)

    The shift from college to uni is a big change and it will make a huge difference because I feel like I'm going to experience a wave of different emotions. I feel happy about it because it will be a new adventure for me and I'm going to start a new life. I'm also going to have a chance to make new friends and I think this will be good for me. It's also kind of exciting as well because I'll be able to go to new places with my new friends. But then I feel nervous too because I'm going to be fully independent and at times I might miss home, but hopefully the nervousness fades over time. Overall, I'm slightly ready for it.

    I want to study the undergraduate accounting and finance programme in university. I want to study this course because I really want to learn how to focus on money management, financial and reporting, and the best processes to save cash. I want to deal with the challenges of an ever-changing business world. I want to gain the skills, knowledge and confidence to operate effectively in the fast-paced world of multinational companies and global financial markets. I want to become a chartered certified accountant when I'm older because I am determined to have a keen understanding of how organisations work through finance. I was keen and determined to become an accountant at an early age of 11. I want to learn how to use the necessary tools to make evidence-based decision-making, which combines both management and technical skills. I really want to also help my clients as much as I can. I think helping people solve their problems and achieve their business goals is a pretty rewarding way to spend my time.

    I am just concerned about one thing, which is getting into second year. Because I was in hospital for three and a half months, I've missed three whole months of college which is a total of 112 lessons missed. I've been trying to catch up with my work, but I'm not there yet. I am currently getting majority of C's and a few D's in my standard monitoring assessments and I've got one B. I am not asking for high grades for this year, I just want to pass this year. Over the summer I'll catch up and hopefully I'll do better in my A level mocks!

    @rainskye Going out with one of my close friends today after nine months and I had a catch up with her. She was one of the few friends who was worried about me when I wasn't stable so she does care for me a lot. I'm glad she's one of my close friends!

    Hey! I'll resend it here. :joy:


    I have a really good friend who's been in a similar situation.

    Since primary school, he's been quite sick cos he has an autoimmune disease. Secondary school and sixth form was probably one of the worst times for him - he missed a lot of school because he was severely sick and it took a toll on him, mentally. But him, being the embodiment of a workaholic, studied during his sick days so he could stay on top of his work. Man, he has a whole timetable dedicated to work. By the end of sixth form, he got really good grades.

    Though you've missed quite a few months of college, you're going to pass and you're going to get those grades. Why? Because you carry a very, very strong perseverance through your struggles, through dark times and through suffering. Because you're going to push through this and thrive. <3

    @lovemimoon thank you so much for the support! <3
    You should be my advocate :joy: But really what happened to your friend taught me that anyone can get the grades no matter what, if you put the effort in.
    This quote is really inspirational too, thanks!

    @LorryTruck Ahh how can I forget, so basically I had an old boy bestie and we planned to meet up for the first time in 2019. I was walking on his road waiting for him. As I was walking, he suddenly tapped on my shoulder so hard, I got so scared and I turned around, screamed and then I fell on the ground LOOOL😭😭😭. He was bare laughing and couldn't stop and then I was like to him "pick me up then!" and then he did. Man them days were good, I've built good memories with him. Even though I was pissed about what he almost done to me, I still wish him the best.

    @AislingDM I love teen wolf because firstly I love supernatural series. It also has a very good story. I loved how these group of friends supported each other whether they were supernatural or human. It shows the human connection they share with each other.

    Favourite musical artists?
    I say this in general chat a lot but I'm very uncultured so I probably won't know them, so explain why you like them too, if you don't mind.

    @Apollo My favourite artists are James Arthur and Ed Sheeran
    They are my favourite artists because I find their music great and I can also relate to their songs. Not only because of their music but they are amazing people who treat their followers with respect and love.

    OMG SAME i'm watching it rn, it brings me a lot of happiness too and I'd say it's for the same reason, about how people can bridge gaps no matter who they are. I also love Scott because he seems like such a genuine person =)

    @AislingDM Oh definitely firstly I thought that Scott was the main character but I think it's actually Stiles because he has grown into a complex and integral character. He also refused the bite, no matter how tempted he was to have supernatural powers of his own. This shows his strength.

    That's abso so accurate @zaynab_5 ! Like he could have asked anyone for the bite and even got offered it easily but he knows he doesn't need it, which I genuinely think is so cool. I also do feel that he is good-natured. I love the show too because, generally-speaking, they're less creepy about the women/girl characters and also don't try to age the characters up too much in terms of their behaviours (like they kind of do in Gossip Girl, for example, but ngl that's still a fave show of mine too haha!)

    @AislingDM For real because it shows his courage too!

    I agree on this as well.

    Indeed especially by the end of the series they unleashed some badass woman-focused character growth. It's just sad how Allison died early in the show before she had a chance to grow. Man I love all the female characters in this show, they're all positive thinkers.

    100000% they're such positive thinkers plus they show the girls' friendships not just through the male gaze/when the girls are talking about the boys, it actually shows how they support one another. Also agree about Allison, so sad and I completely get the actress feeling too old for the role, but equally it is annoying that we didnt get to see more of her as she developed.
