The most emotion filled week of your life has arrived. You will experience nerves, excitement, fear, hangovers and some of the best nights you’ve ever had. You are guaranteed to feel each and every one of these things
A new place, new people, new city, new room and a new way of learning. Everything is new and you won’t know what to make of it but fear not, everyone you meet will be in exactly the same boat.
Will you make friends? What if no one wants to live with you in second year? Calm down. You will find your friends and you will find a house and it will all be happy ever after. Just enjoy Freshers.
University can be some of the best three years of your life and that is exciting. You get to meet new people, have a fresh start and you get the freedom you’ve so desperately wanted. No parents asking when you’re going to be home, you can drink to your heart’s content.
You’ve made friends, you’ve attended the odd lecture and you’ve made meal plans for the week. You have got this uni lark sussed. Pat on the back for you.
You’re hungover and it reaches 4pm and you realise there is no food in your flat, you’re yet to eat, what on earth are you going to do? Mum, where are you? You end up resorting to takeaway pizza for the 4th time that week and it’s only Thursday.
The hungover panic will make you miss your mum, your dog, your brother and your bed. Everyone will experience homesickness at some point, do not be embarrassed of it. It is the most normal thing in the world. Call home, have a chat, they’ll be missing you to.
It’s week 6. It’s reading week. Praise the lord. Go home. Relax.
Panic round 2
Reading week is over. You did no reading. Why are you incapable of getting your life together?
You begin to question whether uni is for you. You’ve fallen behind on work, essay deadlines and exams are looming. Fear not, make a revision plan and all will be okay.
You made it through the first semester. You have friends, you have found a house, you did your essays in time. You made it.
