Helloooooo lovely hoomans! I know I know, it’s like spotting a unicorn in the wild,…
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.
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?
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.

As a Durham uni student, there are a few essential experiences, such as walking through the cathedral, running up cardiac hill and eating your way around all the fabulous cafes and restaurants the city has to offer. One of the best things about Durham, at least in my opinion, is there are so many amazing places to grab a bite to eat (or a soothing cup of hot chocolate), so today I’d like to share some of my favourite spots (both cafes and restaurants) with you so you can start thinking about where you’re going to take those study breaks or social med
Being an adult supposedly means doing annoying things like taxes and not having time to do what you love, but that isn’t usually the case. Being an adult, at least how I define it, is being able to look after yourself. It means you can live independently without worrying that things will fall to pieces and doing that isn’t too much hard work. Doing that just involves learning a few skills that can help you be an adult while still maintaining all the fun-loving things that you did when you didn’t have to worry about things like budgets and dishes. Today I share 10 adulting tips – skills that are essential to helping you cope in the big scary world!
Plants seem to be a thing all university students want to have, but looking after them is another story! So today, I’m going through three easy rules to help you keep your plants alive as a uni student. I hope you enjoy it!
This year, not only am I working as an ambassador for my university, but I also signed up to be a college parent, which means helping to mentor a few first years in the same college I’m in. One of the questions I’ve gotten a lot of over the last few months is around gap years and honestly I can understand why. These are not normal times, and for many the idea of starting university during a pandemic isn’t awesome, so a lot of people are considering gap years. So today, because I was serious about wanting to do lots of university-advice related posts, I thought I’d chat about why I took a gap year, and how it connected and impacted my experience going back to university so I hope you find this post helpful!
