A Universe Trapped in a Labyrinth

This is my boring and interesting and teenager life spanning from age 15 to 18 (May 2015-August 2018)
Within you'll find many re-inventions of myself, boy trouble, school trouble and life trouble. (Plus interesting bits I thought I would include as well).
Do you dare to enter the maze?

Today is results day for many GCSE students around the country.

An hour ago that was the most daunting aspect of the summer holidays. I couldn’t sleep as well as normal, waking up every hour and forcing myself to go back to sleep. I couldn’t eat breakfast because the churning nerves in my stomach proved to be too much. I had to shower to calm myself down and repeat mantra after mantra to myself. Whatever you get is okay, B’s and C’s are okay.

But I knew that if I got C’s I would be disappointed, with myself most of all because I know that I could do better.

But I didn’t get C’s. I did well. So well in fact, that my sister rang me up crying over the phone on how proud she was of me.

Whatever people get, it’s alright. That’s slightly hypocritical from what I’ve just said, but if you get the grades that you want and hoped for than that’s overwhelmingly good.

But if you get less than your expectations, know that it’s just a bunch of letters. Education is at least ten times more difficult than a couple of years ago, and you getting the grades you are is a testament of that.

This year the grade boundaries were high. For my history you had to have 90% to get an A* which is a lot higher than the 75-80% last year. There’s a few that I’m a bit disappointed with but it’s over now. Universities don’t look at your GCSEs anyway; they look at you’re A-levels.

Relief is totally an underrated concept believe me.

Good luck to everyone receiving there’s today!
