You’ve all heard of the stereotypical drama geek at high school – The kid who generates exuberant eccentricity, the kid who has an overactive imagination and – of course – the kid who has a flair for le théâtre.
Around this time last year, I attended my PGCE interview! I applied to two universities (my main one being the University of Worcester obviously!).
I tell them that next year, I’ve got the choice of doing the standard individual research project or a final performance.
When I say this to people, they automatically reply with ‘I HATE you!’
Over the last year and a half, I have had an absolute blast at University.
I’ve experienced really great days and also the not so great. I’ve had days when I can hardly wait to get up… and other days when I want to keep my head under the pillow for as long as possible.
