    Hi :wavey: some of you may know me from Chat threads or University threads or MHoC (Famous for being the former resident Oxford applicant on the Cambridge thread :rofl::rofl:) but anyhow.

    I have never been the best student in my school or in classes but I have always worked hard to the best of my abilities to achieve the grades that I can! Academically I am interested in many topics but I think my primary interests are Biology (mostly environmental/ecological but also interested in genetics.), Geography (physical and human), History (post-colonialism and colonial, plus US history), Anthropology, Politics, and Drama (play interpretation, staging, directing, etc...). I try to learn about a bit about all topics I come across though except for certain ones like maths :/ that I can't stand!

    In terms of my personal interests, I enjoy watching sports, mostly football (favourite team is Chelsea #KTBFFH), basketball (Lakers fan) , baseball (New York Yankees fan), American Football (Seattle Seahawks) and cricket (England)- call me a bandwagon fan all you like :rofl: but I am not xD-, debating about random topics, and watching musicals and movies. Of course, this now includes TSR :rofl:

    My goals for this thread is to make myself make my predicteds or exceed them so that I can make my grades for my firm university no matter which one it is going to be! and of course to be positive about every curve ball life throws at me.








    I believe that I can succeed and get the best grades possible so that I can matriculate in my firm university next year

    Nice! I use Garamond, but they look similar (You know you are a writer when you can recognise different fonts just by looking at them. :rofl: )

    I have heard mixed reviews about him, but I cannot pass my judgement on his writing

    Have you read The Spy? OwO It just came out last year
