Last summer I was bored stiff. Within the first month of summer break I’d already run out of ideas of things to do, and I still had three months left to occupy myself. Therefore, I plan for this summer to be action-packed and fun, so I can really make the most out of my summer before starting third year.
I first went home from the university at Christmas. I had been at the university since late September and although I’d met up with family and friends, this was the first time that I’d gone home for a prolonged period of time.
One of my biggest fears before I went to university was the fact that I was going to be forced outside of my comfort zone into meeting new people in a completely alien environment.
Throughout University, it goes without saying that you will be VERY busy.
Despite the jokes most people of a slightly older generation make about living the ‘easy life’ as a student, realistically, it is a really busy time for students.
It can be easy to forget that there is a whole other world out there whilst you live at University. You live in this little bubble of your friends, your social life, your workload, and the odd bit of work and lectures as well!
Living in halls is an experience, and that’s the only way I can describe it. For the first couple of months I was overwhelmed by my new found independence and I was enjoying living my life with what felt like no boundaries or any cares in the world.
Third-year modules are over, provisional grades are in, people are leaving, and the moment we have all dreaded for so long is finally here….. Our University careers are coming to an end.
Now that my first year at university is over, I can finally relax, enjoy the sun (not as frequent as I hoped in Worcester) and the summer. As I’ll spend most of my holiday in England, I thought I could do something more interesting than work, work and work some more.
