i have a job interview for tomorrow! yayayay!

Oooh, what job are you going for? Is it working in the library? IS IT?

I WISH!
i didn't get it anyway :(

D'aww, poppet :( Ah, well, it's their loss. You can come work for me if you like.

oh please can i!
well it was my fault, really, they were looking for somone fulltime.

i need a job so bad

Srsly, come work for me!! I'll give you room and board and sexytymez in return for you walking the dogs when I should and going to the shop for Twixes and cans of Pepsi Raw. Ooh, you can change the DVDs when I'm in bed as well. And I'll give you some spending money, of course. You'll be like a kept woman.

ahhh best job ever srsly. but do you want to come here, cos i has uni? we can share my room!

You live in Ireland, do you not? Cos I might be going uni in Belfast anyway. It's the only one I'm applying to with an offer lower than AAB, so if I screw up in my A Levels I might be seeing a whole lot more of you xD

i live in Scotland now!! And, Belfast is really close to my home town omg waaaah

No way! One of my other choices is Edinburgh, so I can STILL come see you xD

YAY!

:D But only if I don't get into Oxford, obv. I keep not realising just how much I want to go and then re-realising, and then getting all down about how unlikely it is :(

Sweetie.

I'm Northern, a girl, poor, I'm not nearly as clever as I like to think I am and there is a distinct possibility that I'll come right out of uni and right into a cardboard box under a railway bridge. Not great Oxbridge material, tbh.

it's all about self belief. and on the bright side, even if you didn't get into oxford, you'd get into edinburgh and then we'd be awesome! haha

Sweetie.

I'm Northern, a girl, poor, and I'm so bloody much more clever than the people who run Ox/Cam, and they're intimidated by all that, so there is a distinct possibility that I'll come right out of uni and right into a cardboard box under a railway bridge. Too great to be Oxbridge material, tbh.

Good luck nevertheless...

Thank you. But I'm not that bright. And although it'd be nice if Sheeny was right and it WAS all about self-belief and whatever, there's still an unfathomable amount of prejudice within the system, whether it's conscious or not. Also, these private school kids get fucking COACHED through the admissions process, they've been practising interviews and whatever for years and the teachers have the time (not to mention the lovely foldable motivation) to make sure they do all the like reading around the subject and know more than just the course requirements. My teachers don't even have enough time to give us the full 5 hrs a week we're meant to. Fucking hate private education, it's not fucking fair.

Also, your swearing in English is not so good - a native would prefer "I'm so much more bloody clever" to "I'm so bloody much more clever ".

Ah, so...  I was attempting to modify "so much" rather than "clever", hence my inappropriate placement of the intensifier.
I don't swear much in American either, so I guess I just need more damn practice practise.


Anyway, I suspect that you are that smart, but Miss Sheen is right at least to the extent that presentation is often at
least as important as actual ability...

In time, you will learn that I am always right.

But Sheeny... if you're always right... and I'm always right... what if we disagree?? And I ain't calling you Miss Sheen, nuh-uh no way.

As for you, Mr Bizzell, I don't think "bloody" can be applied like that. I'm trying to think. The phrasing would have to be totally different for it to emphasise how much cleverer than them you were - it'd be more "I'm much bloody cleverer than them".

As you wish...

I suspect you are far bloody cleverer than those tweed-clad clods.
