I found out yesterday that I’ve been given an unconditional offer to study English Literature at the University of Glasgow! It’s quite incredible to know, for certain, that I’ll be going to university. Currently I’m ranking Edinburgh ahead of Glasgow for various reasons (the city is less intimidating in aesthetic terms, it’s in the heart of Scottish politics, etc.) but I’ve heard many good things about it so it certainly wouldn’t be a begrudging fall-back.
Roll on the future!
(What does ‘roll on’ actually mean? A lot of teenagers say this without ever imagining the image of something rolling forwards).
