I had my Falmouth interview today, which was fun. The dreaded group interview wasn’t much of an interview. It was more of a chat with current students while the individual interviews took place. It was fun though, looking through all the modules and thinking about what I want to do. They have postcards with all the different ones on, so you can essentially make a chart of your degree, which I personally think is awesome. I know I’m not going for a while yet, but it’s still useful.
My own interview went well, even though I’m terrible at articulating my thoughts in a coherent manner. I hut kept saying how much I love reading; which is true, but still. It was a bit overkill. I got an offer, which is excellent, so now I have to decide which uni I want to go to. It’s between Birmingham and Falmouth at the moment, though I haven’t actually been to two of my other choices yet. Maybe I’ll change my mind.
The journey down to Cornwall took us 6 hours, which was super fun. Father and I ended up singing Abba towards the end of it. We couldn’t really see the road, due to a lack of street lights, cat eyes, and all the mist. A wonderful experience overall. When we finally got to the hotel, I ordered the meatiest thing on the menu. I got a huge plate of chips, steak, chicken and gammon; the waitress thought it was for my dad. Nah, lady- gimme the meat. Om nom nom.
The journey back wasn’t so bad; a lot less traffic, though the intermittent 40 zones were somewhat irksome. We had some nice brownies at the new Gloucester services, which is very posh. Do you remember me mentioning it? The toilets have the most Dyson air blades I’ve ever seen in one room. And the sinks are very fancy. And they have trees suspended from the ceiling as light fixtures. Basically, it’s awesome.
So overall, the day was a success! I even managed to get rid of the last pesky villager living on my paths in Animal Crossing! Very exciting news.
