๐Ÿ‘ First Year Uni Bucket List ๐Ÿ‘

๐Ÿ‘ First Year Uni Bucket List ๐Ÿ‘

So, even though itโ€™s November itโ€™s still pretty much the beginning of the yearโ€ฆ and Iโ€™ve decided itโ€™s time to make a bucket list of things I want to achieve throughout my first year. As they say, youโ€™re only a first year once! My plans for my entire degree are far larger and will change by my third year, and even probably next year therefore Iโ€™m taking one year at a time. This list isnโ€™t just specific to me, I think these are things anyone studying in Plymouth should aim to do! Iโ€™ve done some of these things when I was younger with my family, so enjoy some home pics from 2013 too!

โœจ Expectations vs Reality of the First Few Weeks in Uni โœจ

โ€œUniversityโ€ is a daunting word. It has various synonyms from; โ€œadventureโ€, โ€œeducationโ€ and even โ€œlonelinessโ€ โ€“ and all of that is okay.

Thankfully, I had the unusual experience where I knew the people I was moving in with and my boyfriend lives in Plymouth too, so I wasnโ€™t completely on my own. After I had moved in, my dad suggested they (my parents) start driving home (a 3-hour drive to Wales) and I begged them not to. Itโ€™s okay to miss your family though. Iโ€™ve gathered that even though you love where you are, itโ€™s okay to feel guilty about missing your family. I ring my mother and best-friend every day. It dawned on me that the end of summer was the last time Iโ€™d see many of my friends, so I tried my best to make a summer that I would remember.
