    Nervous as well as excited, I can't wait to have my own independence and be able to do what I want, however I'm quite nervous about being so far away from home and not having my parents at home if I need anything, or if any *******s arise at home and I'm unable to get there.

    I'm also a bit nervous about covering my own costs, it seems quite scary going from living at home and not having to worry about rent or food shopping, to everything completely changing and having to fend for myself. I guess the benefit is I'll be prepared quicker than others who aren't going to university, or staying in university accommodation for moving out and getting my own place in the future.

    But yeah, long story short I'm a mixture of nervous and excited.

    I think i am mostly excited about the whole thing. I am slightly concerned about my Mother though, I keep getting random things off her that she wants me to take to Worcester, the other day for example i was given a measuring cup and a tea towel.

    Take all you can and make sure they do you a big shop of stuff that'll last. After that, you're on your own so make the most!

    Make sure you let them go for a big food shop with you. I missed out on this for two years.

    Just FYI - If you're in City Campus/halls then go to Asda as it's in town (lol i work there)... If you're in St Johns the nearest supermarket is Sainsbury's.

    Nervous to go to uni? not nervous but it's going to be a weird feeling knowing I'll be 6 hours from parents. I lived on my own for a few months so I sort of have some experience with being away from family. Definitely not a family person and more friend orientated so I don't think I'll be homesick or miss them that much. I've been putting together a list of things I'll need but because the parents are driving me up to uni, I'll just ponce of them for some things as their 'baby boy' is going to uni... haha.

    You'll make decent mates wherever you go and some of them you will just gel so well with you'll think each other as family.

    Get a parent/student shopping card too. This means that they can top up using the parent card and you can use it in-store for shopping. Might help if things get tight.

    Be aware that when you're driving around it when you arrive - it's completely ****ed up. Loads of unnecessary traffic lights and one way streets.
