      So apparently practically everywhere in Harrogate is booked up on the 20th, with the exception of a few expensive rooms that I just can't afford. :cry: Whhhhhhhhhyyyy:cry:

      EDIT. Wait. Is the price given for a room for BOTH people, or per person? I assumed per person but if you divide by 2 then they're not so bad...

      I just can't win.
      Let's say I absolutely smash this year. 90% in second year uni or something awesome like that. Will it give me a realistic chance of forging a good career? No. Will it bring me any closer to forging meaningful relationships, romantic or otherwise? Nah. How long will it make me happy for? Well, maybe a day.
      Let's say I do okay. Then I am not special, and just for that I feel terrible. And I still have all those problems, and amplified.
      Let's say I do badly. I have no reason to live, with no skills beyond my academics.

      So obviously smashing it is the best case scenario, but when your best case scenario is still so dreary, why are you trying for anything? I guess it's just natural. Any living creature would do the same, go for the best it could get. But I might as well drop dead now for all the good doing well this year will do me in the long run.
      I feel very similar to this, you know. Although I don't even dream of getting 90% because I know I have no chance of that.

      Honestly, if you did get 90% in second year surely it would help you in the long run?

      Well I don't either really but it is a hyperbolic example. Of course it would, but my point is that its effect would be small and it's far less important than other factors which I seem unable to alter.

      oh wow thats a story and a half :lol: Ive done very minimal hours tho and my fam dont own a manual car so the 30hrs with my instructor is all Ive had, he says Im realistically ambitious for this test :rofl: Ive only done 12 hrs in the test town dorchester too which are all figures below average but Im generally alert and good at driving I think, overconfidence at roundabouts does happen
      how did it go?

      Like there's some conspiracy

      - Working in the south east
      - Get offers in the south east regarding jobs whilst still working
      - Got fired, and no job offers despite my LinkedIn basically not being updated and still saying I worked at my previous company
      - Six months and no job
      - Get a job up north, after actively applying to jobs.
      - Almost immediately, I get approached on LinkedIn, not by recruiters but... companies themselves

      It's just a massive conspiracy . You're approached when you don't want em to, and... nothing at all when you actually want em to.

      I havent revised barely at all this easter and havent done finance or accom either, my advice is to take them 1 at a time. Do 1 thing first and isolate the other tasks so you wont be overwhelmed, try to shut off other areas of your brain whilst you work hard and concentrate on one thing :hugs:

      Ahhhh I see. Student finance may actually seem super important (and it is), but to give credit to them, they backdate all payments. Your main worry, sholdn't be the student finance but more so your A levels tbh. I can understand why accommodation might be an issue, but so long as you reach them before the deadline, it shouldn't be an issue. It's only when you get to them...after the deadline where you're forced in to the private sector. I hope this helped any how
