    Considering I'll be living at home for at least 2 years of my MSc degree, I think its encouraging and helps
    me slowly transition to university life at my own comfortable pace. Also, juggling things such as :dumbells: ,
    dieting/nutrition, meal prepping will still go on as usual but without the hassle of knowing that x person nicked
    my meal prep for today from their drunken hangover + loud music = :rip: to my :work: gains.

    I guess its just about balancing everything but more so what you want out of university.
    I give it couple months, probably until early February and the novelty of being at university would wear out. :yes:

    If you don't mind me asking, what did you study & where?
    How was 1st year different for you in comparison to 2nd year? Just + workload increase or other factors aswell such as?
    No of course that's fine! I'm doing history at the University of Sussex. Well I've had plenty of problems with my flat that I'm in, but yes increased workload as well.

    For me, first year still felt a bit like A level? But then second year felt like what I expected university to be like - actually spending time a lot of time in the library for starters independent essays, group presentations, having to manage your schedule so you can do your essay.

    I didn't get to go out clubbing as much, I couldn't really afford to miss lectures or seminars because it felt more important - especially as this year counted. Hope that's helped a bit!

    In case you didn't know, university is just around the corner - as if the countdown on the home page for Results Day wasn't bad enough

    Let's focus on what excites you about the thought of university. For myself it was definitely the thought of independence :excited: Although being away from my parents has made me appreciate them 100% more, I miss being away from them now!

    But hold on a second, I may have forgot to mention a certain something...

    This is a golden thread. Join in with this discussion before 26 August 2016 to be in with a chance of winning an iPad air 2!
    The chance to stand on my own 2 feet and use my independce for the goos in my life if ygm? Prove to my parents that I'm not a little kid anymore and can make decisions (and handle my mistakes lol). Excited to meet loads of new people! I can't wait to join a debate tbh XD

    I'm looking forward to studying a course that I really enjoy! All the way through school and college, we've had a set syllabus to follow the entire time, and I'm looking forward to being able to choose what I learn and what interests me. I'm looking forward to meeting new people (it may be daunting at first) but I can't wait for that opportunity to meet people who I will be living with, as well as the ones I'll have lessons with

    The thing that excites me most about starting university is studying a subject I find incredibly interesting. A subject that will also give me a great boost in my desire to apply to the JET Programme. I'm looking forward to meeting other people on my course as well, but with me being a mature student and a commuter, and having my job eat away at my weekends I'm not holding out much hope to create long lasting bonds with many people at uni

    Living independently! I had my house to myself during October half-term and loved it, so I'm looking forward to life being like that, but full-time. I'm also quite excited about studying Law as I didn't do it at A level, though I'm sure my excitement will completely disappear when it's time to do legal research, write essays and actually do work.
