    During my first year of university I really stressed myself out trying to work the best that I could, I had little time for my hobbies. I know the next two years will be harder and I am intending to try to reduce my work time through less notes, quicker reading and going straight to coursework rather than writing reading notes first. I was hoping for some advice though of if it is possible to do many things during term time that I enjoy, such as gaming, drawing, creative writing, crafting and reading, as well as relaxing, exercising and socialising whilst still doing my best and getting the best grade possible for me? I'm really hoping it is not impossible to have more time to myself, I made myself tired and ill through working so much so I really don't want that to happen again.

    Have you joined any clubs/societies at the uni? They are usually in line with uni timetables
    Maybe you can improve your time management e.g. set a schedule so you have a certain number of hours in the week for uni work and a certain number for your hobbies
