Pretty contented today. I love the sun. It literally cannot fail to lift my spirits after a spell of cold and dark. I think it’s sunny spring days that make me love England, despite my love for travel. Actually, sometimes I wonder if part of the reason why I like going to new places is so that I can experience the butterflies at arriving home again… Part of the reason.

Yesterday I went down to Brizzol Uni for an applicants open day type thing. One of those days when everyone who has received an offer gets to meet up for chats and cookies and talks and things. Very exciting. Especially on the journey there when my Dad’s car randomly broke down on the motorway and we had to get an AA van to come and help us out. But don’t worry tumblr folk, I got there on time and it was fine… Although, it seemed that everybody else had a parent with them for some reason. Not sure quite what that was about. My Dad drove me up but then went off to do some work… Why would he want to look around? He’s not going here?!

But yeah. It was great, and really confirmed that I’ve made the right choice. I was suddenly worrying about giving up English Literature.. or History… But actually, with Archaeology and Anthropology you can pretty much tie anything in. So that’s great times a kabillion. I was especially excited to see that there is a WHOLE module called “Aztecs and Incas” and another called “Anthropology of Greater Amazonia” and also, I was getting pretty worked up about some of the digging too. It literally seems to link everything I love into a handy three year course of LOVE AND JOY. <3

Obviously.. perhaps I’ll go and end up hating it…

BUT I DOUBT IT BECAUSE BRISTOL IS SO COOL. 

Also, I spoke to some of the teacher people about travelling before hand and they were really enthusiastic. “YES! Definitely! Travel as much as you can, and try to think comparatively! Brilliant. I may know some contacts for home stays in Peru! But yes. Definitely a great idea” which is reassuring.. Although now I just need to sort of literally move along on the booking side.. GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER SARAH! Christ. 

That’s it for now on the update. Sorry if my writing style is a bit informal at the moment. I can write eloquently if I concentrate.. but it’s very early in the morning/late at night.. so right now it’s really not going to happen. 

Night y'all x x
