I am absolutely ecstatic with my grade C in history as … Continue reading Bittersweet victories

I have recently concluded the latest stage of studying for A levels (WoooHOOO!! it’s so recent I’m still in the victory dance stage of celebrating), after 4 long years and due to my poor health, I am not well enough to attend Uni. The end has been looming in the distance ever since I received my final exam timetable in April 2019, this caused me … Continue reading Why I took a leap of faith and decided to blog?
