I needed to stand there and be in silence to honour the enormity of what had happened. I'm horrified that the owners of the building would not have the building up to code.
I am currently working for a local engineering company in Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire, and I have just completed their apprenticeship scheme.
I have never taken out a loan or purchased anything on finance as I have the attitude of, ‘If I can’t afford to buy it outright, I can’t have it!
’ I think you feel better if you have to save for something rather than just go out and buy it.
I am still living with my parents in Charfield, Gloucestershire, but I would like to move out in the next year or so.
I think when the time comes I would rather have a mortgage than rent as I believe that renting somewhere is dead money.
I remember I came here to go to the library a few months after it happened, and I passed by the shrine to the memory of the students, it was very moving.
