Day 1, Wednesday: The story of your life in 250 words or
Wowzers, exactly 250 words! I'm great!!
I am born. Late. It's the only time in my life I am ever late. Except if I need to get into town and they're doing maintenance work on the Lowestoft Bascule Bridge. I go to school. I get taught that life isn't fair. I get taught that if you want to succeed, you have to cheat, lie, and steal. I do the opposite. I’m not popular. I take my exams. I pass. I’m pleased. I take more exams. I fail. I’m told by the head of my 6th form that I’m a failure. I want to give up. I’m 18 and my life is over. I get told by my mum to either retake my exams at college or to go full-time at McDonalds. I go to college. I take my exams. I pass. I’m pleased. I go to university. I love it so much that, after graduation and a year off to make some money, I go back. I graduate and I go home. I choose to forget most of my 20s. I work. I don’t work. I work. I don’t work. I work. I get a dog. I love her. I write a book. I write another book. I self-publish. I volunteer. I love it. Not enough to marry it; but it does make me feel warm and fuzzy. I bake. I knit. I swim. I walk. I daydream. I occasionally get on a plane and see what the rest of the world is getting up to.
