October 2018 - A Month Of New Beginnings

WOW - this past month has been such a whirlwind! After 14 years of being in the same routine of going to school, after-school clubs, seeing the same people regularly as well as living at my family home. I've moved 4 hours away - to go to university, to study chemistry, and to start a new chapter of my life!

This past month has taught me a lot of things to start with going to university is tiring!!! :) Especially in the first few weeks with the work as well as meeting new people, socialising, partying and trying new things. To be honest, I know more tired people as I'm not much of a partier so I haven't had a 9am lecture feeling hungover - well not yet?! But the first few weeks also a good memory test - new faces, names, matching the person with their course and any other info they have said. On the whole, I've been surprisingly quite good at remembering things. 

One thing also you learn quickly is that homesickness is normal and you aren't alone. I've only been slightly homesick, as facetime does really help. But I have friends who seem to be fine but they have mentioned they've been crying in their rooms and missing home. You do get past it and though it, well for me I was okay when I made friends and work kicks in therefore you are busy so don't really think about it.

Living independently is something you learn; how to cook, wash clothes etc. For some, you may be used to it but others don't so much. As I love to cook so I love meal planning, buying ingredients and cooking new dishes. Which has always meant learning how to live on a budget ~ so quite a lot of supermarket own brand foods compared to name brands.

Finally, time management; walking up early enough for lectures, writing notes, mind maps, spending time with friends, societies, exercise, food shopping etc. This is one thing I'm still getting used to as every day is different, which is why my blog posts have been very irregularly recently; hopefully, that will improve as I love blogging and everything that comes with it.    

I hope you like this post, even though it's slightly different to my normal posts.

Please follow or comment if you have been or at a university.
