    I've just finished my second year and I'll be going into my final year of university. Whether you are at GCSE moving to AS levels, or A - levels moving into university, what are you going to do differently next year?

    Academic or non Academic.

    For me, I've compiled a list:

    -Go to the library more. It used to bug me when everybody just lives in the library with the excuse of 'I don't do any work at home'. I'm going to give it a try though.

    -Be more productive in my lectures - rather than just sit and write basic notes, I'm going to write good notes that I will use later on. I have a terrible habit of throwing away my crappy lecture notes or just not bothering to write in the first place.

    -Go to the gym more and eat healthily. A healthy body will assist with a healthy mind.

    -Be more sociable. All my friends have now left university. I am the last one remaining. Next year I'm moving into halls for post-grads/mature students/young professionals. I'm going to be more social, I am a people person and whilst I enjoy my own company, I get bored quickly..

    -Maybe try and meet a nice lady. Why the **** not.

    What about you?

    Sweet. I used to make things on Autodesk Maya and 3DS Max, as well as an early version of Blender. I didn't pursue it because I wasn't artsy enough, nor that passionate about gaming..

    Do you use Unity at all?

    V vague but gonna try and focus a little less on keeping everyone around me happy and commit to doing certain things my own way.

    ..Whilst still trying to accommodate for others.

    I think.

    Idk.

    I just hate letting others down. :emo:

    Yep, we have an entire module around Unity actually :yep:
    Not heard of the others, I've just finished my first year which has mostly been around getting everyone on the same page with some languages (mainly C++ and C#) as well as some Maths.
    We have more exposure to engines in our second and third years.
    I'm not artsy at all in the conventional sense. I can't draw sprites or animate very well. But my course is more the programming side thankfully.

    Eat properly and stay fit.

    Have a good sleeping routine.

    Try not to let little things get to me.

    Get over a couple of things.

    Be more organised.

    Stay focused.

    Stop panicking about stupid things.

    Do more to make myself happy.

    Stop thinking about doing things that would do any good.

    Stay away from people who have no positive impact in my life.

    In general I want to be more content with life.
