Make the most of student life
Even if I’m not a “typical” student like everyone else, I can still give some good advice on what to do and not to do as a student.
I moved to live in the UK with my family, so like most students I reside far from home, but I don’t have to deal with all the financial issues, bills, etc. which has its own advantages and disadvantages. However, just like every person that goes to study at university, I had to settle in, socialise and get comfortable in the new environment.
The atmosphere, all the lecturers and staff at the University of Worcester were more than welcoming but coming from overseas to a country where everything is new and having to speak different language, you feel like a baby taking his first steps… at least I felt like one. To be honest, even with the support of my family, it was still tough to start my life all over again.
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.
Animals, just like humans, have a wide range of personality traits such as laziness, which can gain them quite a reputation.
So what’s the difference between these animals and students? Are they both lazy by nature? Ermm, I can’t say no to that but I can’t say yes, either.
… 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.
