Are my grades good enough for university?

  Hey, so I read you went to LSE to do finance and that’s really great – what subjects did you take at a level and did you have loads of As and A*s at GCSE? – If you don’t mind me asking that is – I got mostly Bs and a few As and wanted to know if I have a chance. Great blog btw 🙂

Dealing with Disappointment


If I’m honest, I’ve never been good at dealing with disappointment. I put so much pressure on myself to do things in the most perfect way, that when it doesn’t work out, I literally feel like my world is crashing down (see my post Getting Off the Downward Spiral of Unhappiness). In the past, disappointment has been met with me crying in bed for days on end and feeling sorry for myself. The other day, I got some disappointing news, it wasn’t the worst news in the world – and sure, I cried on the phone to my parents after receiving the news – but the next day, I bounced back up. In fact the news has kind of given me a kick in the right direction of deciding what I want to do with my life long term. In some ways, it was what I needed to get me out of my comfort zone. I was honestly so shocked with how quickly I bounced back, (especially given my track record), and have a few tips for how you can do the same thing…
