Lincoln is a great university and the city is also very nice but so small and so far from the buzz of London life. It’s not that I spend all my time in London but I have always lived within an easy commute and love the idea of being able to be there within half an hour of deciding to go!
I love going to the theatres in London or just wandering around: Covent Garden, Saville Row, South Bank – and visiting the museums.
With this is mind, I decided to apply for a London-based uni to continue my studies. I applied for 5, was offered 4 and chose The Met. At the interviews I got along really well with the tutors but after spending a week with my peers on the induction course, I knew that I couldn’t spend a year with them. An enforced gap year then.
I didn’t have any savings so I couldn’t travel the world and, anyway, I didn’t want to go on my own. I decided that work experience would be the best route and I have been lucky enough to find a couple of opportunities. Time now, though, to consider my 2015 options… More later.
