> Introduce yourself
I’m Bubbles and this will be my 4th year on TSR :gah:

> What are your hobbies/interests?
errr my life is pretty boring now. i used to be very sporty but now not so much. i like sleeping, travelling and eating :laugh:

>What are you currently studying?
Biology, Chemistry and Spanish,, and I’m doing an EPQ

> What grades do you hope to achieve?
Straight A*s which just won’t happen because we missed 6 months of education... and I do really hard subjects...

> If applicable, what universities/courses are you applying for?
Still indecisive about this. Either Medicine or Biomedical Sciences - for Biomed I’m considering Oxford, Sheffield, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Bristol and UCL :eek3:

Thinking about a gap year?
Always wanted to take one then corona came along so I don’t think I’ll get to have the gap year I dreamed of. If I decide to study medicine I’ll be forced on a gap year because there is just no way I can make a competitive application for med at the end of august... just no❤️

>What are your goals for the future?
Be happy and live life to the full. Hopefully travel a lot!!

> How are you feeling about this year?
Terrified!!!

> Got a GYG (grow your grades) blog? Post a link
Coming soon!!! I’ll post it here when it’s up :getmecoat:
