    I've never really been one to get excited about anything accadmic, but right now I'm really quite giddy. I just got a letter containing an offer to study Computer Science at Oxford University. I still have to meet the A-level grade requirements of course, but merely to get this far is simply amazing.

    Last week I had 3 days at the University for interviews, most of which I thought had gone really badly. I was very surprised, but of course very happy, when I got a letter saying I had an offer from my first choice college. Now, to redouble my studious efforts...

    So, I've moved into the college, secured internet access, learned how to get food, and all seems to be well.
