    I know this is kinda sad but I'm really looking forwards to eating my own food (I can't really cook but I guess I'll learn trying)
    Its not that my moms cooking is bad (its really good) but I always want to eat other things than the say 15 dishes we rotate around the days.

    Anyone in the same boat? :nyan:
    When I went to uni for the first time that was pretty much the same for me- I couldn't really cook, but once I started getting used to it I enjoyed it! Although, once you've had pasta/curries too much then you start to crave for meals from home :lol:

    you'll definitely enjoy the atmosphere thats what i'll say

    uni is nothing like college, you are treated like an adult for one and are in the company of more sophisticated people

    so my advice is enjoy every moment. because when those 3-4 years are over thats its
    100% agree with everything in this. College was nice enough but I think it was my least enjoyable experience.

    I'm heading into my third year and I shall be sad once it is all over

    For me it's the whole challenge of university. Getting your life together, dedicating yourself to work, and being responsible for setting yourself up for success later, because boy oh boy your whole future is based on who you come out as after those 4 years. I want to get good lifelong friends, work on some kind of original idea through uni to pitch and develop when you're out. I came out as a nobody after highschool, but I will show everyone who ever knew me and who will know me what Im capable of achieving.

    Since I am an international student, meeting new people from a foreign country tops the list of reasons why am I excited to go to university. I really love meeting new people, learning their personality, listening to their stories or just simply hanging out with them. The thoughts of spending time with my uni friends have kept me thrilled for months. Honestly, it is not all about the fun times too. Meeting new people abroad will also help to broaden my network internationally.

    - decorating my room and buying stationary- not living miles away from everything and being able to go to the beach everyday
    - actually having a social life :laugh: (and getting back into old hobbies I've put on hold)
    - my placement year and the experiences I gain from that!
    - being able to contribute to research, or just carry out my own studies

    but most importantly just to be able to learn more about a subject I absolutely adore!

    Honestly? I think everything! It's a new endevour and although it's pretty scary, I feel like it's a step out of the regular routine of our lives, going towards what I hope is a good future!

    No sweetheart. You will never want to return to home.

    The freedom you'll experience will be addictive.

    Just make sure you give them a text or a bell every couple of weeks to let them know you're still alive.
    cheers for the advice

    - studying my course so it can lead to my happy successful career
    - meeting new people
    - having new experiences
    - having the space to appreciate my family but to enjoy time away from them to focus on myself (basically independence)
    - cooking all kinds of food (90% of which may go horribly wrong but the process and laughs involved are probs worth the mess and sickness)

    I'm excited for pretty much everything!

    I am returning as a mature student so looking forward to pushing myself back into education and meeting some new people!

    As a mum who has worked full time since i was 18 (I'm now 31) its difficult to find time to socialise so I'm excited to immerse myself in the whole experience.

    Hell I was even giddy buying my stationery!
