A real-life update: I heard back from my university of choice, and as of October I’ll be studying for an MSc in Psychology! I’m looking forward to being back on campus after many a year’s absence, and joining all the societies I didn’t have the confidence or social wherewithal to join as an undergraduate, like the LGBTQ, the Fetish Society, Bhangra Collective, the Pokemon Society, and the Society of Petroleum Engineers.
I emailed a copy of my personal statement for university to my friend S (a careers advisor, who herself has done plenty of post-graduate study). I dreamt that her appraisal of it, whilst polite, basically laid waste to what I’d written. Fortunately when we met in real life, this wasn’t the case.
Dreamed that Sibling was feeling blue. Investigations into the veracity of this inference suggest that he’s only “tired and grumpy today.” Situation may possibly be redeemed by booking tickets to see Nick Cave.*
