As I am writing this I have survived my first 3 weeks of university!!! WOOO GO ME!! Needless to say there have been a few tears and a bit of self-doubt, but apart from a couple of blips, I have so far had the best, busiest and most exciting 3 weeks of my life.
I had high expectations for freshers week, and although I was hit with freshers flu 3 days in, it was still a brilliant time. It taught me a lot about myself, which I wasn’t expecting. I now know that I’m not a massive drinker and never will be – and there’s nothing wrong with that. Freshers allowed me to meet a whole range of people and make some amazing friendships; I instantly clicked with the people I share a flat/floor with, alongside finding my possible future housemates too. Not only this but I’ve made some fab friends on my course as well.
With a whole whirlwind of different emotions going on, mixed with a very busy social schedule, it didn’t take long for me to get a bit homesick, but I guess this was expected. After and long phone call with Dad, a few tears, and a few motivational words, I was ready to take on the world again. Something I really struggle with is my confidence, I doubt myself A LOT, so I frequently thought that I wasn’t good enough for the course or university life in general, but soon realised I was being silly, and needed to just throw myself into everything, and start working on believing in myself.
Workload wise, I’m on an Art and Design course so my timetable is fairly packed, whereas some of my flat mates have a couple of days of a week, I’m in for all 5, all day. Which I don’t mind at all (am I even a student), I even don’t mind the 9AM starts! I prefer to be lay out all my art stuff and have the space to make a mess, rather than make a mess in my little room then pay £250 to get something replaced.
That leads on nicely to the last thing I wanted to cover, that being my little university room. I think one of the things that I was most excited about was decorating my own university room, and I wont lie it is the cutest university room (and cleanest) that I have ever come across; if you would like to see a room tour, you can find that HERE. I don’t like having a massive room, because I don’t take up much space, and feel a bit lost and lonely in a big room all on my own, so although its small, it’s the perfect size for me!
So I guess you could say that I’ve settled into university really well, and I am loving my time here. I’m sure you can expect to see from me many more posts about university!
I hope to see you all in my next post,
All my love,
