The day of reckoning

I wouldn't be an A Level student if I didn't write this post really would I?

Truth be told I haven't got my results. Obviously I couldn't go pick them up, I forgot to get my address changed to this 0ne on the mainland and my mum refuses to go get them.
I was supposed to send the school a letter asking if they'd let my mum have them, but I forgot - therefore I have not got them.
Tomorrow they will be posted to my Guernsey address, but no one will be there as my mum leaves early in the morning for Southampton, before the post arrives.
I phoned Dad to ask if he'd go get them from home and throw them in the post to Southampton, but he declined and the whole thing ended in a shouting match.

So. Until the 10th September I do not know whether or not I can carry on my courses; and I don't know whether visiting all these Universities is justified.

Nah I'm not miffed...

If there was a problem your teachers would have tracked you down by now.
Hell, my mum's a teacher - they've had the results in every school since Monday *wink*

:( That sucks

Could you phone your school, explain what's happened and get them to tell you your results?
I know it's nobody's favourite way of finding out but at least then you would know.

I do want to know, of course I do. But at the same time I don't mind not knowing. I'm genuinely scared about these results. I can't remember the exams and I sure as hell don't remember studying... So maybe it's safer to tour England kidding myself that I could one day be the holder of a degree. Actually Davey darl I did fly a kite today and it was ace.

Eh? What's this? What's this?!! I left a comment ages ago, but apparantly I didn't, by which I mean the comment I left apparantly didn't, um, get left. Oh you know what I mean!

My fingers are crossed for you; hell, my crossed fingers are crossed for you!
