I’ve spent th last few weeks researching for my future. I’m hoping to start education in autumn once lockdown is over. I never got to finish my gcses and left high school with a btec health and social and nothing else. At the time that was a massive achievement in itself and I couldn’t of done it without my home schooling tutor who literally had to write for me while I tried to stay awake with her. I would only do a few lessons a week and they’d usually end early because I would start falling asleep. It’s been a year since I was education and I’ve made a lot of progress with my health, so I’m hoping I can successfully do education now. I’m going to need a part time schedule but besides that I think I’ll be okay. And if I can’t handle it then I’ll just have to stop.
The most promising option right now is Hereford College for the Blind. It’s a residential community college for visually impaired students ages 16-25. I would have endless opportunities there from social, educational and general life skills. I’m very nervous about how much I’ll be able to handle but all I can do is try. I need friends. I need qualifications. And I need a life.
If I get into the colllege I’ll make sure to tell you all about the journey. Hopefully it’ll go smoothly and I’ll be able to build a good life with lots of friends like when I was younger. I miss learning and I miss having friends in person.
