    To be able to live in my own, tidy, peaceful environment, and be as independent as possible.

    Learning my own way. Being my own person and worrying less about how people will compare me to who I was at 11. I grew up between year 7 and 13 but people still judged me for who I was and not who I am (except for a few people). So I guess mainly being able to have a fresh start, make new friends and learn even more.

    Well, I'm not exactly going to university yet because I'm only just approaching Year 11, but I guess one tging I would be looking forward to otherwise is finally having the opportunity to get a fresh start and turn over a new leaf. I guess I'd also be looking forward to having some indepdence, were I going to university this year.

    I've been told that when you have distance from your parents you start to like them a lot more because they don't nag you and they like you more because your not messing up their house , so I'm looking forward to that.

    Also looking forward to having my own space, if I put something down I know it'll be there when I come back and my brothers won't have taken it.

    Not that I dislike living with my parents or anything... but living with the same people for nearly 2 decades can be stressful, so yeah, I really can't wait to move out of their place.

    Can't pick one!! Being on my own is very exciting, I've always been very independent. I can't wait to start exercising at the gym. Can't wait to do all the projects for uni, I love my course. I wanna meet everybody on campus haha I'm SO excited the opportunity to meet so many different people is definitely the best!

    Seriously looking forward to accessing loads of decent books and being able to research at a much greater depth among people who appreciate the subject that we're studying.
