So, you’ve got your place at university and you now have to actually get ready to go. The time from mid august when you get your results to mid September when you have to start uni will go SO fast, so don’t put off things that need to be done for ‘another time’.
When I moved to University my major concern was missing home. I’m an independent person, but I am a proper family girl and enjoy spending time at home. The first few weeks of University was very hard but a few things made it easier and hopefully they will help you when you move out!
It is amazing what you can do with a white shirt, some felts and paint. Through the many different themed socials at university I have mastered many a costume starting with a white shirt. A Clown Shirt, Snowmen, Army and Zombie are just a few to name.
Uni Life is not all fun and games, and being the first time the majority of us have live away from our parents and families is hard sometimes. Most of time, we have our distractions, were too busy doing work or partying but sometimes we get the feeling of homesickness.
Just starting out at Worcester University had its moments but one of the toughest was the first few days here. Let’s face it, a new environment can be a little daunting even on holiday.
… So here I am, the only person in Paddington station. Starting to feel a bit like Harry Potter, on the 9 and ¾ platform.
Moving to university is the first time most of us have lived away from our parents. Although it’s an exciting time, it also means we have to take a lot of responsibilities.
The first thing that hits me when I get off the plane is the lovely rain, dull sky, and the oh-so-refreshing wind that nearly sweeps me off my feet. I have no idea which way I’m going, but I listen to my instinct and follow the herd. Everybody seems to rush to a little train. We travel for about five minutes, then we all get off and go to pick up our cases.
