I might have told this before but when I was 16, I wanted to go into banking or be an accountant. I had a place at Loughborough University lined up but could not go as my old man refused to fill in the grant forms.Kes wrote: ↑Thu Jul 30, 2020 7:16 pm Let me put it this way. Let's say, hypotheitically, I have an overwelming pathological desire to get a masters degree in astro-physics. It means the f*cking world to me. Should I get a free university course?
No, I am what I am, and just have to accept it, unless I can enable myself to be what I want to be.
It's OK for you young f*ckers, your starting reference point in your beliefs, is in a different place to mine. I'm able to adapt from those values instilled in my childhood, but only so far, I'm sorry to say.
Of course things worked out well but I sometimes wonder what would have happened if those forms had been filled in.
I made sure my two offspring went to Uni like they wanted to.
