My first day of university today, right on the very same day the 2013 A level results were released - got me thinking quite a bit.
A year ago when I received my results, I was definitely disappointed and afraid that I couldn’t get to where I am today; where I wanted to be. But at this point, in retrospect, I’d say that grades really don’t matter as much as how badly you want something.
The universe may rarely be so lazy, so I decided to wear the exact same shirt to school today as the one I wore to results day last year, just to observe this beautiful coincidence in the alignment of significant dates. And also to prove my point that it’ll work out somehow, if you pursue it hard enough.
No one else may fully understand this, but today pretty much marked the beginning of a dream come true, for which I am eternally thankful.
