I love Brighton

Posted by lauraoli on January 7, 2012

6 years ago when I was applying for medical schools, I wanted to be reasonably close to home (Lancashire). So on first try, I applied to Liverpool, Manchester, Sheffield and Nottingham universities. It wasn’t to be, however, and I didn’t get the grades to get in to any of those places.
Second time round, I had to apply to places that would accept applicants who had retaken some/ all of their A-levels. This meant I wasn’t able to choose universities geographically, and I applied to Peninsula (Exeter), East Anglia, Sheffield and Brighton & Sussex.
Brighton was where I ended up. I wasn’t very happy about this, it’s a good 7 hour train journey/ 5 hour car journey home – not so easy to pop home for the weekend. I was fairly miserable for the first term, but as I got to know people and the city, I settled in.

Over the years I have come to LOVE Brighton. It will always hold a special place for me, since it was here that I came to know Jesus as my Lord and Saviour. Not only that, but it’s a fantastic place to live, and I will be very sad to leave  in summer, when (hopefully!) I will start my job in Lancashire. I don’t know what the future holds though, maybe I’ll be back here someday!

This video started to appear on my facebook feed yesterday, as more and more people saw it, commented on it and posted it for others to see. It is a fantastic representation of Brighton. The person who shot this is a very talented 13 year old boy.
