Yesterday, I got to the final round of a Lloyds scholarship at Bristol which would give me up to 18k with paid internships. Then Leeds emailed me (despite me rejecting them) and told me I’d got two more scholarships and to choose which one. One of them would pay my fees and give me a grand each year. Called them today to ask if I could change and they just said yes. I prefer Bristol as a place, it is better regarded (but the dept isn’t so good) and it would be so easy to just go because I know so many people there but I don’t know if I’ll get the Lloyds ting and if I don’t I’ll have no money as rent is stupid money). Didn’t like Leeds but I think I may have not given it a chance plus literally everybody else does. If I go there I will be able to actually have money, graduate with little debt, the dept has fab reviews - I’m just stressed because I think people will think I’m not as smart (which is dumb Leeds is v good for English and I’ve got grades good enough for any uni in the country - also I could take other courses including with Griselda Pollock <3), plus some of the most annoying people i’ve met have gone to Leeds (but also some of my fave people too) and that I won’t be trendy enough. I think I just have to be a bit brave and not turn down a good opportunity (only 7k of debt vs 25k) because I’m scared and worrying about what people will think.
Phuck this I’m going to get drunk with my Granny in Brighton tomorrow.
