For the past six months or so, I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of My Life, and sharing my experiences of university with you all. However, this will be my last article! Don’t worry, I will still be writing for Student Life however my studying section will be moving into this little slot here, and my studying section will be dedicated wholly to books, which is a refreshing change I am highly excited about.
My time at university, so far, genuinely has been some of the best times of my life
It all sounds so cliché, everyone tells you university is the prime time of your life, but it genuinely has been so far. I have met some of the most incredible people, made so many friends that I’ve been lucky to enough to make memories with. The freedom to study what you love has motivated me to work harder then ever, and yet weirdly enough, being at university has also encouraged me to enjoy myself more than ever. To take days off, to go on nights out, to travel up to London for the day. I’ve done more new things these past six months than I did in all of sixth form.
University has really helped me change into, not a new person but, an improved version of the old me. I have more time for my personal interests and hobbies, I have space to travel, I have new people and opportunities to greet, and so many new things to learn. I feel I really wasted my first month or so at university, keeping to myself in my room, not really going out to social events, just burying myself into my work, and I really regret wasting such precious time, because everything since has been incredible. Sometimes it doesn’t always work out in the dream way, and like me you may not gel with your flatmates, which honestly sucks. However, I have some amazing housemates lined up for next year, and I can’t wait!
Thank you all for sharing this journey with me, I hope yours is just as incredible.
