It’s a-level results day and I just want to say to everyone expecting results/news from your dream university, that you will get through this. Whether it’s good news (in that case I am sending an early congratulations to you!! and make sure you listen to your mum and not spend all your money on fancy dress in preparation for freshers week like I did) or bad, you will get through this.
If you haven’t gotten the grades you hoped for or haven’t been accepted into the university you’d like, please please please know you are not a failure. Exam results do not define who you are. Making someone laugh after they’ve been crying, being thoughtful and kind to the people who may not deserve your love, cooking your mum tea after she’s had a hard week; these are the things that define who you are.
You will cry enough tears to fill an ocean but you will get through this.
