On Monday 4th April ‘The Island with Bear Grylls’ returns for its third series on Channel 4. I am currently in my third year. Can you see where I’m going with this?
When the third series came to my attention I suddenly realised that the televised experiences of a number of random English folk left to fend for themselves on an Island for a number of weeks has always coincided with the time of the year when I am revising and working intensely in the run up to the end of year exams.
When the stress levels reached dizzying heights and I felt like I wasn’t going to make it, I looked to those brave, foolish, wonderful exemplars of British fortitude and realised that:
1. It’s always worth a go, (particularly when your life depends upon it because you’re stranded on a remote Island) and
2. That you never know what you can achieve if you put your all into it!
