    We've all heard phrases such as "freshers will be the best time of your lives" etc etc but has it proved to be true for you?






    For me it was not at all good, but then again it's just been a month?

    I'd say it's been 50/50. I'm now in second year, and freshers was amazing yet at the same time awful for me. I seemed to run into a bad string of luck the first semester, but then the last few months of the year were pretty sweet. I've never heard people say specifically freshers will be the best time of your life, rather uni in general will be the best years of your life, and I completely stand by that as uni up to now has been great.

    For me it definitely has. Everything I wanted to change or improve about myself I have basically done and I am the person I have always wanted to be.

    Uni in general: no. Not because it's bad, it's amazing. It just so happens that I had an even more amazing year just before uni

    Why did uni only get better for you in the last few months? was it the people that you met?

    I suppose I feel overall negative (three weeks in, first year). I haven't been out at all; I haven't made any friends - obviously I've spoken to people and all lol but I can only just call some acquaintances and that's it -, I'm not very good at living independently and the course is interesting but not exactly amazing, plus I am finding the constant assessment structure (worth a small amount but still worth something) stressful. But I don't know what else I would do lol. My life just seems to be moving along of it's own accord, and I don't know where I'm going but I know that I'm relatively "safe" with this course of action. But I'm not growing as a person, if anything I'm shrinking; even if the degree goes well I won't be employable the way I'm going, so really it's probably an illusion. Oh well.

    Yeah partly that. Like I said, my first semester was just unlucky. My flatmates turned into *****, I had money issues, my course wasn't what I expected, and I fell really sick. So once all of those problems were sorted out after the new year I felt a lot more happier and got to enjoy uni life more.

    Why?
    School was the worst time of my life, didn't finish and my education was ****. Always wanted to fix that.

    Not really. I always find it difficult to balance education with anything else. I've never been akin to that kind of life, so i'm not ****ging off the uni itself etc.

    So far the last few months of college were better. Most of my modules have been boring so far(not because the content's boring but because last year I self-studied 90+% of the new stuff covered so far) and I haven't made any friends yet. I didn't go to much of the freshers stuff and have only been to one society meeting so far. I only know how to cook a few meals. The continuous assessment is proving tough to get my head around.
    On the bright side, for now there's lots of maths and physics to read.
    In the future, the good acquaintances I've made so far should become friends, the lectures should start covering new content soon, the societies seem to be picking up, eventually I'll learn how to cook. I'll get used to the 6 assignments and exam each week.
    In conclusion, so far it hasn't been as good as some of college, but it should get better soon. Either way, so far it's been much better than any period of my life other than college.

    How and when did you meet (if you did) your real friends that you actually liked?

    I've been asking myself the same thing ever since getting here

    the only thing that numbs me up is random guys from clubs.
