I wasn’t always supposed to be taking a gap year. Before 2015 I had decided to take the same route as most of my peers, finish my A-Level exams, have a summer of blissful ignorance, results and then hopefully start the university chapter of my life October 2016. However, like most things in life, things don’t always go to plan.

After recieving back my AS grades and them, well not being what I wanted/needed them to be, after much deliberation, long conversations with my parents and friends, and late nights worrying, it was decided that I would no longer be applying for uni this year. Instead, apply in 2017 and from there The Gap year was born!

So, this page will be about my updates and research, then hopefully planning and doing what will be going on in the Gap Year. Keeping track for myself, and maybe helping others, showing that it’s not as hard as it might sound. (Or maybe not, we’ll have to wait and see!)
