I'M LEAVING UNI! by Sophie-Louise on 9 January 2006 6:38pm
i've decided i'm leaving queen mary university of london after alot of personal problems and the fact that i hate the geography course, it bores the pants off me! i'v emade good friends and had a good time but i'm quite depressed due to the amount of personal problems i've had and the fact that i hate the course. what's the point in doing a degree you don't enjoy?????

so i'm moving back to lincoln to do photography, what i've wanted to do since i took it up for a level. i will start in september so in the meantime i will work fulltime!

just thought i'd tell peeps! so bye bye london, i do like it here but where i live is well dodgy, people getting mugged and my friend got punched by a bloke for no reason!

so if anyone would like a nice room for rent in this dodgy area of bow, tell me! lol ;)

I think you are very brave to take the course of action that you have. Photography sounds brilliant - any creative outlet is good for the soul. I wish you all the luck in the world and look forward to seeing some great photos. Linz

Good luck Sophie

If it came to a choice between living in London or Lincoln I reckon I would do the same as you.
Have fun with your new adventure.

Very brave of you to change like that sophie - good for you - wish you all the luck in the world - can i have your autograph now so that when you are a famous photographer i can sell it on e bay - ooops i mean treasure it for ever!!!

awwww thanks guys! you are such great people! i agree with you linz, people say photography is a bit of a pointless degree as is art, but i don't agree, without art or photography people who can never travel or leave home will never see the world. it's photographers and artists who bring the world to people who can't see it and there are so many different opinions on art and photography, i think it's a good subject.

yeah Al, parts of london aren't nice and i'm in one of those parts. some very nasty things have happened!

lol lyn! i will give you some to keep and some to sell! ;)

Hey Sophie, what I can say but good luck with the photography. No point sticking with something you hate and where you lack passion.
I've learned do what you like. Better that than being miserable because you studied something for a "market," Employment changes so often now, you might as well do what you like.

THOMAS, my man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How are ya????

Sophie-lou. I'm not too nuts about London either. When I say that, people look at me like I'm an idiot. lol. I'm glad I saw it, but have no huge desire to return. Maybe some day if the opportunity is right, but it's not a destination on my list of places I want to travel to again.
