BEING A DROP OUT and other fun stuff!

Hey guys, what's shakin'.
So I haven't posted here for a while. For SOME REASON my activity on this blog is still pretty high? (What's that about?) So I figured I'd come back and update you on THE PERILOUS WOES OF KAT.
(In case you were wondering, that's me!)

I'll have you know that I'm still as fabulous as ever.

So I disappeared because I actually found that I had stuff to do, not just any 'stuff', but worky stuff. Boring stuff. Stuff that really, no-one should ever want to do because it drains the soul and mind away from sanity and into the deep dark pit of depression.
That's right folks. A-Levels.

As you know (or don't know- I can't remember how much I actually wrote before I abandoned ship!), I flunked my AS'. Pretty badly. Then I was hell-bent on going to university to study Chemistry, so I had to work DAMN HARD to get there!
I came out with BCD. I was supposed to get BBB. THEY STILL LET ME IN.
And then, two weeks into the course (on the 14th of October, if we're being exact), I handed in my 'let me leave plz' form.

Yeah, I know, Matt. Just let me explain.

SO WHAT HAPPENED? Well, I realised that in actual fact, I'd been following my head instead of my heart. My logical side said 'TAKE CHEMISTRY, YOU CAN GO ANYWHERE', but my brain was saying 'NO THIS IS SO BORING YOU WILL DIE'.

Turns out, that when you're choosing your degree, you should follow your damned heart.

FUCK the people who say 'follow your head' or 'choosing something with jobs at the end of it' because I tried that, and it SUCKED. So yeah, I'm reapplying next year to go and do Business and Creative Writing, or something like that, because that's what I'm good at and that's what I like.
Sue me.

My grandparents hate it - they're being all 'typical daily mail' about it, which obviously makes me look forward to Christmas (:-) :-) :-)) ten times more, but hey.

So right, yeah. For now, I'm sort of trying to get a job (and by sort of, I mean 'I don't really really want one because at the moment I'm a little bit of an anxious wreck and would rather stay at home and write fiction all day every day'), and thinking about trying Camp America. (Cause that could be fun!) 
Working at Build-A-Bear taught me how cool (and sometimes bratty) kids can be, so it'd be fun to work with them and travel and do cool things all at the same time! Plus, staying in youth-crime central for another full year will drive me utterly mental.

I also have to actually sort out my UCAS, and Student Finance, all over again. Which sucks. Big styley. Hopefully this will be the last time that I have to do it, because it really is a horrible process.
Particularly the personal statement, which, by the way, I have to do all over again.


Uni life was... Interesting though. It was pretty weird cause I actually went to uni with my best friend, so I didn't feel the need to make very many other new friends. When I go next year though... It'll be a totally different story. We'll see how that goes when the time comes, eh?

OKAY COOL I'M GONNA GO AND LEAVE NOW! I've got NaNoWrimo stuff to write (why did I agree to this) and more emails to send about UCAS and my future in general.
