Life update #3

Riding the high of my previous post, I may as well impart my other piece of good news. As you will know if you have been following this blog, I have been living in Stoke-on-Trent since finishing university back in June, and have been feeling rather down due to the lack of opportunity and the lack of drive in the city following the optimism and splendour of Oxford. Well, I have been speaking to my old form teacher/friend from high school recently on Facebook, when the other week he asked if I would like to meet with the new Headteacher at the school to discuss Oxford, and to see what I could offer the school in terms of advice about Oxbridge. I went in to see the two of them on Thursday (3rd), and have been offered a job as a mentor and in assisting with university links! I have yet to finalise pay, hours and have a CRB check, but if all goes well, I should hopefully be in work within a month. Yippee! I cannot thank my ex-teacher enough for facilitating this opportunity for me, and am truly grateful and humbled that they feel I could be of any use to the school at all, to be honest. I will post an update when I know more, but for now, things are looking slightly more shiny than they did!
