University part deux  
Since my last post I received only one university offer which I was willing to enrol into straight away, if it wasn't for the fact that I forgot my TFN (I already filled in half the form) which the ATO won't tell me over the phone.

So lo and behold, what do I get in the post? Another university offer. For my shitty final result, its pretty good, a double degree in Commerce/Engineering.

If I take this offer it would mean I have to move interstate to almost, the other side of the country on my own. It's a fucking scary prospect. Since I got my offer in the mail I  have been trying to compare the two universities. From what I have read the two universities are very close in their rankings. I have been trying to ask people on fb for advice. I don't think anyone else from my graduating class had applied interstate.They seem all happy with their one offer. I don't get why people are already updating their education pages. Thank fuck I didn't since I am stuck in a limbo.  Burkey still doesn't believe that I am reaching out to him and Cez is still away on her cruise. :( I asked my aunt for help to which she luckily responded to very quickly. 

Burkey is still an arsehole I don't know why I keep on telling myself that won't be a sanctimonious prick now that he had graduated high school. For someone who is supposed to "like" me, he has a funny way of showing it. Ignoring him was probably better.

Since I am pissed at him, I feel like ridiculing his fb profile.

Did i mention i'm part nerd and part geek?! No you haven't made that clear enough times.

Completed my VCE since 10/11/10... no skoolies 4 me, besides Melbourne has awesome shopping, clubs, restaurants, the casino, etc. and then there are empty roads... hmmm skids?
Don't you mean skidders? In your undies?

I have a great interest cars and I know some stuff about cars, which makes me a petrolhead and somewhat a hoon, a sensible hoon :D . A sensible hoon sounds like an oxymoron. Who the hell has ever heard of sensible hoon?
I enjoy any music, if it sounds good. I watch decent movies such as genres of comedy, action, thriller and drama. Into parodies- internet and so forth, plus some satire.
He has an awful taste in stuff.

I'm sort of into gaming, usually 3rd person and car games. I barely watch tv, but i would like to get foxtel. I'm into sports, but mostly motorsports, yet I think footy, UFC, b-ball are great sports.
Yet you can't play any of them. Unlike my brother who you bullied can. I am waiting for my brother to grow taller and beat the shit out him.

My dream career would be an automotive designer. My great ambition is to have an awesome car, a Shelby Cobra replica. Featuring a big V8 over 500 cubes (over 8.2 L displacement) supercharged and making 1000 hp or more at the rear wheels. Your dumb obsession with cars is the reason you have no female friends and your misogynist attitude doesn't help either. 

People who know me think i have a funny and comedic side, i think of myself that i can be funny, but not just an outrageous comedian as these people perceive me as.
No he really doesn't. I hope that last part was sarcasm but knowing him I think he truly believes that.

Gosh I am still confused.

It is a very scary prospect, going to school that far away from home. I was just short of going to a different province for university (I live really close to one border and go to uni at the complete other side, 2000km away), and it was a bit daunting at first. Once you really get into the school life, it doesn't seem to be so far away anymore (at least, it was like that for me, but I call home a lot). The only time that you'll really feel the distance is during holidays where you can't go home (like Easter or something, when it's not worth the trip) or when you're sick. I've never felt so far away from home until I got ill.

Congrats on getting a second offer! Having a choice is always good

It's hard. A part of me wants to go and another wants to stay home.

I decided it's my parents call whether I should go or not. My dad doesn't think the double degree is a good idea. :\

I only have until Tuesday to finalise this.

I don't know if I'd leave sucha big decision to my parents, myself. Choosing where you go to university is quite a personal thing, I found. You really want to choose a school where you know you're going to be happy.

Personally, I was choosing between two schools, and the choice was so tough for me that my mother and I wound up visiting both schools before I chose. My mom really loved the first city and absolutely detested the other (and thought it too scary and unsafe). I, on the other hand, preferred the school that was in the city my mom hated and decided to go there, despite her misgivings. I totally made the right choice and don't think that I would've been as happy, had I listened to my mother (my dad kept his nose out, haha).

That turned out to be longer than anticipated, and for that, I apologize.

It's just whenever I disagreed with my parents and didn't follow their advice I suffered time and time again. Ever since my results came out they have decided they are going to control my life. They are actually making me go to bed at 10pm like a little kid. :( At this point I have as much freedom as my 12 year old brother.

Plus my dad also studied engineering, in his eyes there is no point in doing business for me.

it's alright. I am glad things worked out for you. XD

Re: Sorry to interrupt
It's just that I am just confused and unsure about what exactly I want.

They have been right too many times when I had disagreements with them. Last time it cost them a fortune.

My dad also studied engineering so he does have some idea on what he is saying.

Re: Sorry to interrupt
it's true. But my parents are extremely worried cause they think I spiralled out of control in my final year. (I really didn't, compared to bff who now has to repeat yr 12)

I have to chose tomorrow (actually in 10 hours)

Re: Sorry to interrupt
I have always done what interested me, unfortunately they were the most draining subjects ever, physically and creatively.

Doing a double degree with a major I have never been really interested in doesn't really seem feasible.

My parents would actually move up with me eventually. That's what they had always told me. We always lived in the south because for me.

I do have some family members up there. So I won't be completely alone.

If I had my own money I would say fuck no. But I need to save up some money and I haven't had a job for 2 years.

They all sound so wonderful. Making it even harder. I was disappointed Wales wasn't an option.

But I need all the goss on how well they do academically in my field of study. Seriously eyeing Heriot-Watt rn with an uninformed opinion.

I am so looking forward to visiting the UK but I am dreading the cold weather cause I am just too sensitive to the cold.
