It's sunday night and as usual I am supposed to be revising, yet I'm not. School is just so urgh at the moment and I just can't wait to leave school and travel. I visited Cambridge uni on Friday with the English department at school which was amazing and for an afternoon I was super motivated to do well but the enthusiasm had gone by the time I got home. One of the guys that gave us a tour was a third year politics student called Ed who was super nice and when I asked him what politics was like to study there (that's what I'm hoping to do, not necessarily at Cambridge though!) he sat me down to answer questions and talk me through the course and work load etc which was something really simple to do but has genuinely helped me so much in deciding which path I want to go down in the next few years. Although it would be incredible to go to Cambridge I'm not sure whether I'd be able to get in, especially as the average student that gets accepted there gets something crazy like 95% in their AS exams in year twelve which seem slightly unattainable to me at the moment.
Sadly we didn't have time to visit the city centre but we did see parts of it here and there which were mostly stunning - the old college buildings there are incredible. I'd really love to go back sometime and have a proper look around the city with a nice camera!
Today me and my family went to one of our local pubs and me and my dad both had THE most amazing roast pork lunches (if you've never been to a good ol' English pub for a sunday roast then you are missing out my friend) and we would've gone for a walk but as usual it was tipping it down with rain.
I also started watching the Carrie Diaries this morning (thank you Lexi for the recommendation! it's so perfect omg) and one episode in I'm already in love with it. Austin Butler is a little *ahem* beautiful to say the least (HE'S STUPIDLY GORGEOUS OMG) and the whole 80s teen thing really appeals to me. I love the actress who plays Carrie Bradshaw (Anna-Sophia Robb, is it? I could just google it but i'm too lazy woops) - when she and Josh Hutcherson were in Bridge to Terabithia a zillion years ago I fell in love with her character, Leslie. I started trying to dress like her and got a matching haircut and everything - definitely my first girl crush. Bridge to Terabithia is one of my all-time favourite books/ (and the first film that properly made me cry and connect with it), although I haven't let myself watch it in like 4 years - each time I watch it I become reduced to a crumpled, sobbing mess. It's become too painful to watch, especially as I found out that the book is based on the Author's son's childhood.
To 9 year old me, she was 100000% the coolest girl ever.
I want to watch the next carrie diaries episode before my mum takes my laptop away (me? internet addicted? never!) (ok she might have a point) so that's all from me! good luck for whatever y'all doing next week:*
