I’ve been in Worcester for a couple of years now so it’s safe to say that I’ve gone for a fair few meals out, whether it’s been with my current housemates, first year flatmates, my boyfriend or my family when they’ve come to visit.
You’ve all heard of the stereotypical drama geek at high school – The kid who generates exuberant eccentricity, the kid who has an overactive imagination and – of course – the kid who has a flair for le théâtre.
I’m very proud to say that during my time at Worcester I have done a lot as a Drama student and as an Ambassador. I co-run weekly drama workshops at The Hive, I assist in drama open events, I’ve assisted with youth theatre and the National Theatre Connections project and I’m also employed as an actor!
In the first few weeks of first year, all I wanted to buy was a University Hoody. It was the first time I ever had proper control over my own money, in the form of my student loan, and the first purchase I made with my loan was that hoody, and I have worn it hundreds of times in my three years at uni!
You’re going to uni, or you’re at uni and you play an instrument – Why not join a band?
A topic that has cropped up a few times in conversation recently, is how much everybody wants to travel the world.
When I was younger, I never really thought I’d be the travelling type.
I didn’t expect to feel independent enough to want to book myself a round-the-world plane ticket.
Now don’t get me wrong, I love my course and being at University (as you’ve all heard a million times,) but I do wonder when my time will come to explore all of the places that are on my bucket list.
A general rule of university life is that students drink eat a lot of sweets and fizzy drinks during assessment weeks or when they are not in the mood for “cooking”. This is when junk food becomes our new best friend!
