For those that cannot sit infront of a screen for 8 hours a day. We are called linky brains and I'm going to tell you more about my life to date on the positives and negatives it has had on my career.

Lessons Learnt From Trying - Part 9 by Frankie Baeza

Until receiving a place at university, I had never finished an exam. From Secondary to College, and once I found out that I was dyslexic I became quite bitter towards the whole education system which made my life as well as my madres a complete nightmare. Continuous threats of expulsion for poor performance in school was something I was used too, especially throughout college. I'm very proud that I managed to complete a "Higher Eduaction" even though there isn't 1min of lectures I can say taught me anything worth knowing. My completion of university is thanks to Youtube.

It's been exactly 2 years since I last wrote about my brother getting meningitis, a lot has happened since but reading back on my past blog posts has made me decide to continue to write the story in sequential order. This does mean I have to delve further into my memories which will be tough but ultimately therapeutic and a chance to reflect on how I have got to where I am now. The happiest I've ever been.

One of the difficulties in having Matt as a business partner was the fact that his home was in Jersey. A beautiful utopian island, situated in the English Channel, endless surf, fresh fish and ultimately another millionaire/billionaires playground. A place that, through my friendships, I have become fond of and have also recently found out that my future aunty will be marrying my uncle there. So it is a place close to my heart. However…

During my first ever freshers fair I met a student in his fourth year called Nilante. I guess this was my first ever experience of networking and it was a very important thing to learn.

My first day arriving at my university halls was Saturday 17th September 2011, there were no feelings of anticipation or nerves. Mostly due to the fact that I still didn’t know how I’d been accepted into a university and more so because I had no desire, at the time, to continue studying.

I really didn’t want to ever go to university, in fact to this day I still have no idea how I managed to get onto an actual course with the my A-Level results.

Rewinding back, to when I came to the end of my studies at Woking College in 2011.
