So my first term at University has been an interesting one. I moved to a new city, met 9 people I would be living with for the next 9 months and started my Degree.
It’s weird to think that I am almost halfway through my first year of University already! Crazy! So I thought I would take the time to reflect on what’s happened, what I’ve learned and what next term might look like.
Starting Uni after 2 years out of education was an adjustment change, to say the least. Not so much the living away from home as I have had a lot of practice in that area due to travelling, but more so doing work. Yes, I know, I’m at University to get a degree, and so I should’ve known that there would be a lot of work, but it did still jump up on me and I am getting back into the swing of it. All I can say is do not leave things to the last minute as all-nighters are the WORST THINGS EVER!
However, I am really loving my course and am excited to see what the next few projects they have in store for us. The lectures are always really interesting, and I do enjoy going to them, not the 9am’s though, still getting used to that time, but once I’m there I do find them very interesting and helpful with our projects we do and have done.
Being independent again though, moving away from home and really taking that next jump into adulthood is something I have been wanting to do since leaving school really. I have always been a very independent person so I have learned over the years how to enjoy my own company, how to stay self-motivated and how to make myself happy by doing the things I love, as well as juggling cooking, cleaning, socialising.
My flatmates and coursemates have been the best, could not have asked for a better bunch of people to live with and study with, and I’m so glad to have met them. Also, my netball gals are so funny and I love going to training and going on nights out with them, we are always guaranteed to have a blast!
Overall I’m excited to learn more and continue to grow and improve and make the most of the rest of my time at Uni.
Talk to you in my next one!
