Life Update: Moving To University.


I'm currently sitting on my bed it's quarter to five in the afternoon and I'm frantically writing this blog post in between trying to pack what feels like my entire life up into an abundance of plastic bags. Why? Because tomorrow (or yesterday as you're reading this) I'm moving to university to start my degree and whilst I'm really excited I'm of course slightly (okay very) nervous about what to expect. 

Firstly I'm a huge control freak. I hate nothing more than the feeling of something impending that I can't control and the stress of trying to sort nineteen years worth of stuff into 'things that I'll need' and 'things I can live without' had me up until 1AM last night worrying. This coupled with the fact that I don't really feel prepared at all when it comes to my course isn't making for a very relaxed experience! I'm trying not to think about it too much or else I'll probably have a break down, but I wanted to write a quick post to say that over the next couple of weeks my posts may be sporadic as I don't know how much time I'll have to blog.

If any of you guys have been to university and have any tips for me on how to cope and worry less then I'm all ears because right now I feel like I'm going in completely blind.

Of course it's not all doom and gloom and I'm really excited to meet all my flat mates, join some societies and in general have a good year away from the world of retail. Because whilst my gap year was beneficial in earning me some money, it was also incredibly tedious and I couldn't be happier to leave it all behind.

As I said above hopefully my posts will be regular however because I'll be settling in I'm not sure when the next one will be up. But I'm definitely not quitting blogging, I might just need a few days to find my feet!

  4. I really don't know what to tell you to make you worry less because I haven't experienced university yet and I'd be super nervous myself but I'm sure you'll be totally fine & I hope you'll soon feel all settled in :) I wish you only the best for this new chapter x

    1. It's kind of overwhelming, like there's so much going on and no one tells you anything so you literally have to be on the ball 24/7. My friend who went last year told me it'll all calm down in a couple of weeks though haha! Thank you so much lovely xx
