    Can you recommend some best colleges in England in general and for BA Mass Communication/Journalism?

    Yeah, I agree with that :)

    (Also, there's a reference teachers have to fill in - not sure if you'll have to do that if you're outside the UK?? But if they do have to fill it in, it's good if they mention stuff that might have hindered your learning (e.g. teachers for a subject always changing, school in special measures) and how you've handled it despite that :D)

    Nope, I can't study abroad a year and then return in the universities I'm looking at xD

    Okay, because I seriously had no idea when they start the application process in other places as the new sessions here generally start around July. I visited UCAS before but didn't look into it properly, will do that next time for sure.

    I don't know if they'll ask for the reference but I'd still get it just in case.

    Thank you so much! You've helped a lot... And I hope you people don't mind if I ask more questions here later if required xD

    mumbled "Questions, questions, question..."

    I recently finished reading this amazing Webtoon comic Annarasumanara, and it got me thinking about a lot stuff in life. It's a really thought provoking story about life and magic, and beauties of childhood. When I was younger, only two or three years back, i lived in a certain wonderland of my own. The way I used to look at world was different, everything was different actually. I used to believe in some power called Hope, I used to believe in magic and ghosts and aliens and mystical creatures. I felt that there might be some corner of this world magic exists, and where witches might exist. Most of all...I felt that I am someone special, that I am the center of this big world, that I am some 'chosen one' like in all the fantasy stories I have read and heard, that I am going to be something big when I grow up, someone really strong and invincible who everyone would look up to, I thought I'll be a hero when I grow up. There were endless possibilities for me in that tiny young brain I had , and I never I'd grow up like this. Right now, I have somehow lost all that hope and that belief I had in the universe. It's as if the the more your brain expands to occupy your growing body, the less you have faith in the magic in the world. The spaces in your brain are as empty as your emotions, and the world shapes you up to become some kind of a puppet to move in its direction. I always wonder why our system has to be like this, why we don't have the freedom to be who we want to be, why we can't do what we like without being abandoned. Why do we have to stick to the common structure of society and why can't we break free? The only reason I guess I am thinking about this is because I too stressed and I don't want to face what is ahead because let's face it- I am a hypocrite. The moment I do well in life, I feel everything is perfect, there is a reason why everything is the way it is. And it's not only me but each one of us is like this. But there are always flaws which we only notice when we are at the bottom. In the depths of our reasoning, there are various things we criticise even when we know it's useless to do that because nothing will change. This unchanging and stubborn view of the world suffocates me, I feel trapped, claustrophobic in this open wide world, I feel we have no choice but to tag along this 'unending cold concrete road', I feel this heavy weight on my chest. I have been feeling this for years now and I don't know how to take it off and the only thing I am left with is to follow the road carved out for all of us by our ancestors. We have no choice but to follow. I think Robert Frost's dreams were all a lie...

    @[coolgymnastcat] Yes, UnOrdinary is so cool! Have you read Winter Woods and Orange Marmalade? They're amazing as well.

    @[Kinka$h] No I wasn't talking about caste system specifically but the structure of society in the world in general. The way the world works, that is, complete your education under the education system which was actually made to suit the needs of the Industrial Age, and then get a job which gives you maximum amount of money because no matter how someone says money doesn't bring happiness, money would be the main thing bringing you happiness. I just don't feel FREE you know, Free to do anything without thinking how much money I am getting in it so I can have a high holding in society. I want to do a lot of things but have to eventually excel in one thing so I can EARN, that just makes me feel trapped and makes me wonder why can't I do everything I want.

    But Kinny, never give up, I know that you are very capable and will find out a way... I hope things turn out fine for you soon.

    We're celebrating the colourful festival of lights today in India. It's a day to celebrate victory of good over evil... I hope you all conquer your fears today or in the future, it's not only bound to an external battle but a battle within, too. :) I wish you a prosperous and happy Diwali.

    (the only bad thing about this festival is that it causes a lot of pollution and people never listen :( wish my lungs good luck...) I took the picture with my phone so it's not so good and I completely made a mess while pouring oil into those diyas :p

    Also, good luck to everyone participating in Nanowrimo this year. Hope you all accomplish your goal!

    mumbled "Help for Poetry Slam "

    So I am participating in this poetry slam competition and I have never written slam poetry. I wrote this poem but it doesn't feel up to the mark. Please tell me how it is for slam poetry, and give me some suggestions.

    Poem :

    If there can be crocodile tears, 
    There exists crocodile smiles
    I see them everywhere
    I feel them playing on my lips 
    Everytime I pose for a picture that I don't want to pose for, 
    I don't want to smile, cannot smile 
    Because there is nothing to smile for 
    But we have to smile for a picture right? 
    All over the world wide Web I see the plastic smiles adorned over pretty the faces 
    Only the eyes giving out the truth with a dull sheen, 
    The dead sadness and the extinct happiness
    Reflected by that flash in your camera which is there to light up the colour of your face 
    I see the world hiding their fears and insecurities
    Behind the bars... Of Photoshop
    And The pretty desirably thin... Filters creating a world of unreal virtually real joys.

    They notice their "real beauty" being appreciated by splattering layers and layers of contours
    Over their disproportionate faces
    Now protruding at odd places.

    The free beauty programmes filter down your insomniac eyes
    Puffed out with those tears you shed yesternight
    A smile is a perfect disguise.

    It's not only you
    I am a victim too.
    One of those chubby girls who wears black clothes to hide her multilayered skin
    She submits badly photoshopped selfies
    Trying to fit into the skinny contest run by the world
    which defines beauty by the pictures of the overexposed models
    Flashing a smile only at the flash of a camera.
    Those smiles that make the world jealous and mean nothing to themselves.

    And The moment I complain, the world mocks me for being a jealous stout woman
    And on complaining further they sing "Let it be, Let it be, Let it be, just let it be..." When I can't let it be!
    Can you just for once dare to zoom in and look into the stillness of my eyes
    See the longing and the emptiness,
    Devoid of any form of happiness, 
    Of anything which can genuinely induce a smile in a normal human being
    Those eyes of mine are just waiting and waiting for this one missing part in my life, 
    That hand I would hold with care,
    Those eyes which would take me to dreamland with one look
    That voice which would tingle my insides into bursting fireworks
    That person who would stretch the corners of my mouth as far as the west and east of earth 
    Without any effort that even I wouldn't realise 
    When I smile 
    Genuinly
    For the first time in years.

    It certainly has the potential to depending on how you read it. I don't know if you're the kind of person who isn't comfortable performing or not, so all I can say is to believe in yourself and your words.
    You can read my slam poem I did for school if you'd like and see if it gives you any ideas.
    One, Two, Three, FourThis is my slam poem that I have to write for school. Since there happens to be a poetry contest going on, I thought that I might as well enter it. Let...
