The Truth About Going to University

With my first year of uni finished, I’m now at the stage where I’m still trying to get over the sheer chaos of exams (let me tell you, it was VERY stressful) and I’m also coming to the point where I feel it’s actually time to find myself a summer job as watching back to back episodes of Prison Break probably isn’t the best way to spend my summer holidays. But whilst I ponder around at this stage, I thought it would be a good idea to write a post about my first year at university, what I learnt and what I wish someone had told me.

Having taken a gap year before heading off to uni, I watched a lot of my friends go the year before me, which worked in my favour as I could see what it was like for them and they could give me a heads up on what to expect. By the end of September my Facebook feed was filled with pictures of my friends at uni, followed by tweets about  how great it was and how drunk they had been the night before – as you can imagine, this filled me with excitement and I couldn’t wait to head off the following year.
