I've been accepted!

When I was at school, I did well in my GCSEs. The only two A's that I got were in French and Spanish. I continued them into A level and thought "this is what I want to do with my life!"

I applied for University and got accepted into University of Ulster to do French & Spanish. I finished the first term (til Christmas break) and I felt as though I just wasn't enjoying it. I decided to stick it out as it might have just been because I was so used to being off for Christmas. Fast forward a few months and I decided to leave. I cried my eyes out to Chris, saying "I've wasted so much time! Languages was the only thing I was good at!"

I took some time to myself and just continued working. I saw a Forensic Science course in college and went for it. I enjoyed watching all those types of shows and I like science. After being there, I found out that the criminal psychology side of it was for me.

In January 2012, I applied for an Access to University course in Sociology and Psychology but a month later, I fell pregnant with C. As I was due in November I didn't see the point of doing the course for two months then having to leave to have a baby (of course, he arrived at the end of September but I wasn't to know that that was going to happen!).

Come January 2013, I applied again. I went to the information night and I kept my fingers crossed. Last week, I received an email:


"Dear Rebecca,
Your application for Access Certificate in Foundation Studies (QUB) has been considered and I am pleased to be able to make you an offer"


I'm delighted! It's only part-time as now I have the baby but I cannot wait to get started! I feel like I'm finally doing something with my life.

Don't forget to enter my giveaway!

  6. Wonderful news. I studied French at uni but have never ever used it. At 36, I still have no clue what I want to do so you're on a fantastic path already x
