Hi, I am finding it difficult to come to a decision and would appreciate any advice.
As I live in London, I have been rejected from halls from my Uni and am on a waiting list for which I don't have much hope based on the facts that halls are very popular and I will, according to the email , be updated a month or so after uni has started.
I thus have the choice of finding private halls and have found somewhere where the price isn't too bad compared to what I would be getting from the Uni halls, or I can commute - 1 hour door to door daily approx.
I will be studying Medicine , however I am really into fitness- I track my calories + macros and feel that if I share a flat, the environment could be one where people are following the typical uni life of not eating very healthy + drinking often. I drink, but not very often at all and I don't care what my flatmates would think if I was tracking macros for each meal, however there is a pressure to join in and be social . I would feel left out if they were all drinking on a particular night and I only had one drink , whereas at home I'll be in full control of my nutrition .
However, at the same time I don't want to miss living away from home. I went to a boarding school so I've lived out since I was 11 and enjoyed it a lot, obviously with some ups and downs.
It probably sounds like I don't know what I truly want, but from what I have written, hopefully someone would be able to guide me based on the facts I've provided.
Thank you in advance !
