Celebrating my 22nd Birthday

Hi everyone – today I’m skipping the university advice post to just do a little appreciation post for my birthday. I hope you still enjoy it xx

Tips for coping with home sickness

Even the most independent of us all feel homesick sometimes – it’s completely natural! Especially in the first few months of university, when everything is new and unfamiliar, and you haven’t quite gotten into the routine of your new life, feeling homesick is normal, and I promise you that almost everyone feels homesick at some point, they just may not show it. So today I’m going to go through my top tips that I’ve learnt over the years and have gathered from uni friends for getting over homesickness so that all you need to worry about is making the absolute most out of your uni years. 

University Socialising – party animal or bookworm?

One of the big questions that come up about university is the type of student you’re going to be. Deciding whether you want to be more of a party animal, a homebody or a bookworm is just down to what you prefer, and what experiences you think will make you happy or help you have the best time at uni for you. Sooooo today I thought I’d go through a few ideas for testing the waters to see what you prefer, or if you already know, what sort of things you can do with your friends. Let’s get going then shall we? 

Freshers Week Guide and tips for how to survive!  

Starting uni is a big deal, and the start of uni (freshers week) is a massive experience! Eeven though my fresher’s week was definitely not what people would consider normal *cough covid cough* (yes that was meant to be both ironic and a bad joke), I have helped with fresher’s events and still vaguely know what’s going on. Today’s post is going to be a bit chunky – fair warning – but I’ve split it up into a section of best steps to breaking the ‘transition to uni’ thing into manageable chunks, and then some tips for making the most out of freshers week. Right, enough dillydallying there’s a lot to talk about. 

Blogging Collab with Third Culture Kid – adjusting to living in another country!

Today I’m doing a collab with the lovely Third Culture Kid, where we’ll be sharing our experience and tips of adjusting to other countries. Both of us have definitely had some experience with moving overseas, and adjusting to another country can be quite a process so we thought we’d share that whole journey with you, as well as some tips that we picked up along the way. Personally, I’ll be sharing my experience of adjusting to life in England.
