Hey everyone, it’s A and I have a storytime for you. So, yesterday was my enrolment day.. If you don’t know what enrolment is, it’s basically a day where you go in to basically fill in forms and get ready for the course. A LOT went on, and overall it was a good and really terrible day. I’ll tell you the story.
For weeks I’ve been terrified for this day, I’m not really sure why but I was mentally scared. I don’t think it showed much on the outside. The day before I’d stayed up all night and woke up really late which made me think there was no way I’d fall asleep but I did.
I set my alarm for 7am so I have enough time to be there, SO I THOUGHT. Let’s get this in mind, I needed to go but also really really didn’t want to.I was going to just skip it all out and not go but I wouldn’t of got a place if I didn’t go, so I forced myself to go. I thought to just start by having a bath to just relax myself from the severe panic I was having. I only went in there at 7:45am because for 45 minutes I was just laying in bed watching YouTube thinking I’d have enough time to do everything..you’ll see why I’m mentioning the time soon. So I got out at about 8am and brushed my teeth and washed my face.
I then went into my room for make-up, I normally spend so long on my make-up because I like to take my time, by this time it was 8:20am and I knew I wasn’t going to be able to make it in time which I had to be there by 9:15am. I did my make-up and finished at 8:50am and got dressed for about 10 minutes by then it’s 9 and I could find the hair dryer, In was saying to my mum, just refusing to go and didn’t want to go in there late (I’m never late!) Finally I found the hair dryer and dried my hair about 60%.
I knew I was going to be late which would of not made a good first impression (I’ve already met them but the other people too) By this time I had to get all the paper work and get my coat on and go. I left at the exact time I had to be there why.
I left and hurried to college, I hadn’t been in college for a little bit over 3 months and it was weird.. I saw some other students and tried to block them out. After I got to the corridor I needed to be, I started walking down and say a queue of people where I needed to be.. I went to the queue and just immediately went and hid behind a wall.
I texted Viola freaking out, luckily she was awake and she tried to calm me down. I kept on looking to see if the line went down and more and more people was coming, I was getting more and more scared. I literally was about to leave but stopped myself, I spent a good 30 minutes just waiting and freaking out until the line went away. Someone asked if I was okay and I stupidly said yes, after a little bit the line went completely down and I slowly made my way to the desk where some forms were being handed out. I told my teacher that I was very scared and she said “Do you want to go into the room?” I said “no” and I then was handed my form and say on a seat outside the room.
I didn’t at all want to look in the room but from the corner of my eye the room was packed and there was no way in hell I was going in there. I then proceed to just fill out the form which she left me there for a good while. Then my other teacher came up to me giving me details on an LA trip in May which I was like “Oh my god.. that’s so cool”. After a while she came to tell me what was happening for the day which was going to the sports hall to get enrolled. I was so scared when I was making my way down there. There was so many people and there was endless queues. Now, I hate queues, my teacher knows this so I just was a little bit outside the queue. There was hours of just being in a space with soooo many people. Firstly we had to just make sure everything was good on our forms, but it was held up a bit so there was about 10 minutes of waiting. Then I was directed to another line where our forms were just being put into the system. This was a big line and with ropes so that we were in a limited space which scares me a bit and I can’t just move out of the queue a bit. All I did was wait, once that was over I had to go to the payment thing where I had to pay about £400 for the course, that was pretty simple and then came the dreaded ID photos taken. When I was just about to line up, we were told that it was all taken a bit long so we could go after our photos were taken.
Now this is where I saw a person I haven’t seen in so long and really didn’t want to see, after that I just left, so so happy with being able to do it and not bailing out. I went home and made pancakes with golden syrup and then went shopping.
Overall, I make it through what I was so terrified of doing. I was proud of myself after and did a little squeal.
Sorry this was such a long post and hopefully it made sense, see you all soon.
