Sixth Form (College Life)

The joy of turning 16. The rush of feeling like a young adult. The responsibilities that come with this age that may make or break your future... so choose your path wisely.

Yes I know... kill joy right?

But it is true, 16 may be this fabulous age that may open a few doors of privileges and maturity but there is also the reality.. in the UK we call it college...

6 months ago, I remember the nerves and excitement that rushed through every tip of my body, as if the oxygen in my body had been converted to emotions. I couldn't establish whether I wanted to start already or I wanted to turn back around and decrease my age. Obviously that's impossible, oh well. Honestly I do not regret it one bit. I'll admit, college has been one hectic journey; from starting college, homework, coursework, exams, family and the realisation of the remaining 4 months of college. Gulp! Yes... only 4 months,
excluding the days on holiday, that makes 3 months left of teaching... Yikes... If you're starting college soon, don't turn it down because the years seem too long, trust me the time flies way to fast. Before you know it you'll be in waiting for your 2nd year exam results. The idea frightens me but that's life, no matter how slow things feel or how down you may be, just remember time will always move forward, the way you feel will soon enough disappear as time goes by. In that case, I know it's cliche but don't over think things, you're just wasting time, take risks (risks that will help you by the way not crazy risks that will get you into trouble) and explore what you're capable of, because believe it or not but 16 is pretty much the age that determines where your pathway in the future lies. Obviously unless you win the lottery and become a millionaire, then I guess what you did at 16 won't really matter.

On that note, thanks for reading my first blog post, I hope you like it. Feel free to leave any comments. :)

    1. I'm guessing you thing college as in where you get a degree, we call college what most people call their high school years at 16 - 18, we go to University at 18 (which you call college)
