Hello everyone! When this post goes up it will be a week until I head back to university, in a weeks time I will be dragging my suitcase around Bristol Temple meads station waiting for my next train to come in, my shoulders will be aching from carrying my unnecessarily large backpack, and I will be exhausted. So in light of next weeks events I thought I’d come on here to talk about how I’m feeling as to going back to university.
In all honesty I’m not sure how I’m feeling about going back. As I have mentioned to you guys before I wasn’t having the time of my life up thereto begin with. In comparison to last year I feel significantly less scared about going back, I managed to get through last year so I know I can do it all over again. I know now that it isn’t that scary to be look after yourself and it is quite enjoyable in a certain way to feel as though I’m growing up.
I want to go into this year feeling more confident to talk to others and to say yes to more opportunities. Rather than sitting in my room overthinking about how bad or awkward it could be, I want to have more fun, so I won’t let my shyness hinder that this time.
One thing I am not looking forward to is being apart from Joe, after four months of being together nearly everyday I know it will be difficult to spend weeks if not a month or so apart. That being said we did it for the majority of last year so I know we can get through another year of it. Being apart reminds me to treasure the moments we do have together and although not being together can be really hard at times I know he is only a phone call away.
I feel as though this year I want to work really hard, I want to work towards my degree and put the effort in that I lacked the last couple of months of first year. I want to put more work into my blog and as I’ve said before it is a lot easier to be productive while I’m at uni so I think it’ll be a lot more likely to happen when I am there.
I’m a mixed bag of emotions and thoughts when it comes to going back to uni but I hope this year is a positive and productive one. For anyone starting uni this year or heading back, good luck with everything this year.
I hope you enjoyed this weeks post!
