I'd like to just steal a moment to be proud of myself.
Today I recieved an email that informed me that yes, I would be able to apply to undertake the research. It is a minor step, but I've been waiting so long that I don't care. And even if it is a generic email that they always send out, I feel very proud of myself and happy. Proud that I was able to smash through my course even with terrible grade from my first placement, and so very very happy that I'm doing what makes me happy.
I can't wait to start my research Masters, even if it means class on Saturdays at 9am.
