First week of university

So the first week is officially over and done with. Wow. That was... Scary. I met new people, from all over the UK and even further around the world. I met my lecturers, I chose my modules, I drove to university and survived (not the best driver!) I have actually shocked myself at how well I coped and I just want to share my advice and what my first week was about!

Firstly I'd like to say, talk to strangers! I know, when you were younger your parents would tell you not to. But let's face it, you are on your own and you have no idea where you are supposed to be for your lectures, or even who's on your course?! So talk to people! Ask them if they're here for the same welcome talk as you. Ask them what they're studying. Ask them where they're from. Ask them where they're staying! Lastly, take their numbers/facebook/twitter!! You can meet up with them during freshers and find out more about them!

My first week consisted of three days. Three days of welcome talks, money talks, library talks, course structure talks... All pretty boring. However I attended all of the lectures. I thought I should because I'm living at home during university so I need to get socialising as much as possible with my classmates! 

I found out my timetable (5 days a week) *sigh* but at least this means I will be committed to my studies... Right? 

I worked out my budget. I will do a money management post next week and show you just how my money is being spent and my advice for loans, grants and bursaries. 

Yeah so this was just a quickie. I hope you enjoyed reading. I like keeping you all up to date with my university adventures! 

Thanks for reading!
