    All of my colleagues went to university.

    But me thought out school I was told I wasn't smart. Hell I was retarded the phrase they used back then. In reality I am highly dyslexic. And I had a learning disorder. But at the time I was just lazy or retarded little did they or I know then words are not scrambled for...

    I'm currently studying

    because I want to get in a University (Rank 1-70 International). However I feel really stupid despite studying a lot and I feel like I I don't get into a good uni , all my effort and my time has been wasted for nothing.

    It's complicated, I'm a terrible mess

    but I want to do it. Mostly, I just want it to be my own escapade, my little adventure away from home.

    Its not that I can't get in,

    but I have no support, whatsoever, from my father who refuses to fund (even partly) any further studies I plan on doing after I'm finished with Advanced Levels. But I can not blame him solely for my lack of being able to attend university in September. This is something I can...

    Well, it's worth a shot.

    ..so I got offered a placement at a university but there's no funding available at such short notice nor for the course type - it would have got me back into teaching. If I don't take this offer, the Professor whose supported it, will think I'm unreliable, he's emailed me like...

    I have decided it may be a good idea to go to

    uni but I really don't know enough about it at all and that's quite worrying! What if I completely hate it?

    I've always valued education,

    as a way to master a certain knowledge. Learning has become so restricted, though, and going to university makes me nervous. I've always been a writer - it's my way to escape, and understand myself and others. I've always loved to read and have devoured hundreds of books. I've...
