NO Cliche: University was the best time of my life so far! Here is a heads up on what to expect
- You will be broke at some point –
unless the bank of mummy and daddy helps you out, which will require some grovelling as in my case lol.
- You will make great friends and meet some crazy imbeciles
Each set will bring joy into your life, One makes you happy when they step in, the other when they step out!
- Distractions will be everywhere
Toga parties, daytime tv… who knew that cash in the attic could be so fascinating?
- There is a really really high chance you will get fat
At least 2 dress sizes – if you are not careful!
your high school relationship might end, or it might be strengthened, either way long distance relationships are hard! Think carefully if the person you are investing all the time and effort in is worth it… if so, cool beans!
- You will be miserable.. sometimes
Even if it is only for a few moments when you suddenly realise that you miss home! Also when the fire alarm goes off at 3am in the morning and you have a 9am class.
see number 2
- There will be lots of work to do and no one to force you to do it!
YAY! for the organised folks, NAY to everyone else because it takes herculean effort to maintain your focus at uni/college. I certainly struggled at first, then it became second nature :-)
- Word spreads fast!
Think twice and be easy on the alcohol. You can have a great time at university and graduate with your dignity intact! Uni in England lasts 2 – 3 years, but you don’t want to be remembered as ‘The girl who… ” for the rest of your life
- Help is everywhere!
Seek the support of your friends, family and counsellors if things get a bit difficult!
