Finally, I received an email saying that my student visa will be processed and another email saying that I need to pay 300 GBP to secure a room. Unfortunately, I don't have an option to select the type of rooms that I would like. You know what; at this point, I am not too bothered. I am not even sure if I am going to do anything more than - say, get changed and sleep.
I appears that my life is in a way set - i.e. I know what I am doing - for the next two years. After that, I am not sure. Unfortunately for D, I am not sure if he know what he's doing next month.
But it doesn't matter. Life is a journey that you take on one step at a time.
