Hello everybody, i write this post in a state of despair and in need of some sort of solace. Today i was informed that my time as a university student in Liverpool is over. I failed the first year comprehensibly and they have decided that i cannot return next year unless there are some personal mitigating circumstances for such a poor attendance and lack of work handed in, there aren't (unless unrelenting depression counts, however i doubt it very much and would never admit to such an affliction anyway) Anyone else been through something remotely similar? I need direction now, I've really no clue what a 19 year old, wannabe writer, scruffbag can do or put in to this world. oh and i'm fully aware it is my fault and deserve no sympathy, i have enough control of my body and mind to pass a first year at university. I am by no means looking to indulge in sympathy of others (i've inexplicably got enough from myself), i am just looking for guidance of some sort.
