and I passed it up, I decided to take a gap year because I did not get into the University I wanted to most, I got into the second choice and that wasn’t good enough for me. Now, due to the increasing competativity in the UK for an education in a reputable University I will be lucky if my second choice University even give me an offer this year. Lesson learnt: take the opportunity whilst you have it.

How I did it: Immigrating abroad was not really my own choice - I was fairly young at the time, in fact I'm still fairly young now, and it was my parents who made the decision to immigrate. It all happened very quickly, we went on holiday to the country where my parents wanted to live - we were there for a month, and within that month found an affordable house, went back to the UK, sold our house as quickly as we could and moved abroad within 3 months.… Read how I did it…
It began when, at school, we were asked to write practise courseworks for a creative writing module. I chose to write a story about love and friendship during the first world war. It does sound rather obvious now, but I wrote a 5 page beginning, a 5 page middle and a 5 page ending to the novel I now plan on writing. My teacher was stunned and said that she thought I should continue toying with creative writing as a hobby, and endeavour to write my own novel. I have decided to do so.
I have already started writing up plans and notes of what I know I will be writing about for definate. I am beginning to rebuild the characters that I wrote when I was 13 as they are what I remember most about my story; my only problem is that, having immigrated to another country in the 6 years between then and now, it is a mission to try and find what I wrote. Obviously it is not imperitive to my novel, it’s just that I liked the basic plot.
One of my main characters DEFINITELY looks like Joseph Gordan-Levitt…and the scene in the photo may or may not be depicted in my novel…it’s just so damn sexy!
