Finishing my First Semester of University | Blogmas Day 9

Hey everyone!

I am officially done my first semester of university! That’s actually so crazy, I can’t believe it. All in all this semester has been fantastic – obviously there’s been ups and downs (slaying my courses and feeling like I fit in, as well as bad veggie options and stressful study nights)  but would it really be worth it without them?

I love university, it’s absolutely where I am meant to be right now; I couldn’t be happier about it. I have worked so hard this semester because I love what I’m doing! It’s such a beautiful combination! Falling in love with the subjects I was taking was a huge part of my success this semester – and was a huge reason I wasn’t as successful as I feel I could have been in high school .

But that’s totally okay. I’ve realized that if I hadn’t struggled in high school with a lot of my classes, I wouldn’t have known what I wanted to do when I went on to uni. So I’m grateful for that.

I’m also grateful for all the support that my new uni friends have given me. As I’ve heard from most other university students, the friends that you meet here are game changers. They have made this semester so much fun, pushing me outside of my comfort zone in the best ways possible.

So, I still have a long way to go in terms of finding myself, figuring out what I want to do with my life, and all that hard life stuff – yet right in this moment it doesn’t matter.

Right in this moment I am so pleased with where I am

Right in this moment I am proud of what I have accomplished

Right now, in this moment, I am happy.

 

Happy Blogmas babes and cheers for 1 semester down and 7 more to go,

High school Friends | Blogmas Day 7

Hey everyone!

When you go away to university, everyone tells you that everything is going to be different. And they’re totally right.

If university is the right place for you then you’re going to know, I promise. You’re going to fall in love with your classes (and you’re probably going to hate some as well). You’re going to make new friends and you’re probably not going to talk to a ton of your old ones.

There we go I said it

NOBODY TALKS TO ALL OF THEIR OLD HIGHSCHOOL FRIENDS

I talk to two of my friends from high school. And it’s totally okay. When you get to your university you’re going to realize that some of the people you hung out with all the time were your friends out of convenience – you saw them every day right? And you took all the same classes?

Don’t worry, it’s not like they we’re real friendships, and good for you at the time, but uni is a place where you call the shots. I’ve met people who have the same interests and totally opposite interests and I’ve been able to choose exactly who I want to spend my time with! If there’s a person that I don’t really click with then GUESS WHAT?! I don’t  have to hang out with them or see them every day.

What a concept.

So just remember not to set high expectations regarding the friendships you currently have in high school; it’s going to be okay, you’ll find new and healthier friendships when you go off to school.

 

 

Happy Blogmas babes,
