Thoughts Before I Go To University

19 August 2016

So yesterday was results day and I'm sure there were a lot of individuals waiting for the dreaded 'something has changed on your UCAS profile' email and I do hope that you all got into the university you want to go to (those who are going to university anyway), as well as getting the exam results you were hoping for too.

Luckily I was one of those annoying students that already knew they had gotten in to university a couple of weeks ago due to studying a BTEC (but believe me I was still nervous when I got that UCAS email). I honestly still can't really believe that in only 5 weeks I'll be moving 3hrs away from home and over the last few days I have had MANY thoughts running through my head on the subject of moving away and going to university, so I thought it would be cool to share them with you!

01. It feels incredibly weird to say that I'm going to university (something I never thought was possible 4 years ago)
02. It also feels incredibly weird and somewhat nerve-racking to know that I'm going to be moving out and away from home
03. Will I fit in with everyone? (a thought that honestly scares me - what if no one likes me?)
04. Will I become homesick living far away from home?
05. I'm definitely going to miss my cat
06. And my rabbit (and chicken!!)
07. I can't wait to join different societies and sports clubs (something I'm very excited for!)
08. Living away from home will give me so much freedom (maybe too much?)
09. I hope I don't give myself food poisoning (better practice those catering skills before I go)
10. I can't wait to experience the university lifestyle
11. And night life! (paartaay!)
12. I can't believe how much stuff I need to get (I really should start shopping soon)
13. I'm looking forward to decorate my bedroom with cute pictures and decorations
14. Will I have enough money? (something I'm sure every student is worried about)
15. I only have 5 weeks to sort out everything!!

On the 25th of September I'll be moving from London to Chester and those are just a few thoughts I have on moving there. Overall, I honestly can't wait to go and experience the full university experience.

Is anyone else going to university this year? and what are the many thoughts that are going through your head, prior to going to university?
