Studying something I am truly passionate about, living independently and making new friends.

I'm actually the most excited about having my own space and total control of my routine - choosing when to eat, what to do with my time, studying whenever I want without being distracted (I live with a three year old at the moment and it is not conducive to studying ). Meeting new people, not having to do A Levels anymore - and being a student nurse!

You have to remember that the only difference between you now and you at university is a summer. Those 'smart conversations' are only going to occur a small amount of the time. And even then, you'll meet a lot of people with very opposing views to you and will have to learn to deal with those conversations.
I have worked with unskilled colleagues and my current job in education exposes me to graduates and it's clear that those who are better educated are able to engage in deeper and more meaningful discourse. The pool of people at University is simply higher than that of outside. Of course, not everyone is going to be ambitious, smart or motivated but I would seek those people out.
(I do come across interesting people in book clubs and other societies too. I just mean to say that the one thing they had in common tended to be University)
Oh, I don't have a problem with people disagreeing with me. I don't shy away from debate.
Musical opportunities: Yeah can't argue with that.
Boyfriend: Don't tie yourself down unless it's worth it. Uni is a great place to look for that love of your life. However, you may very well become a very different person to who you were before uni, and when you finish uni may be a very different person to who you were during uni. Your priorities may very well change. They did for me and all my friends.
Friends: You will make great friends. But I can almost gurantee that you will make only a handful of lifelong friends. Nothing wrong with that though, they have to be specialLast edited by Kvothe the arcane; 02-05-2016 at 01:27.
