    Screw them. If they can't accept your choice in uni then they don't belong with you.

    I'm doing my all to get into a uni where my boyfriend and I will be opposite ends of the country. It's one of the best universities in the country, the course is a dream and mad employable and I love the place.
    But if I don't get the steep grades I'll do a gap year. We'll probably see eachother a lot. When it comes to re-applying if it's still going strong I'll consider Russel Groups closer to where he lives.
    I'm trying to see it as a win win situation- letting the grades decide. I just hope I don't end up subconsciously sabotaging myself to be with him, because I know that rationally my firm uni is a huge opportunity that I can't afford to miss.
