University stresses me out and makes me mature, I am grateful to have the opportunity to go. As much as I complain about having 3 09:00ams, I should be thankful considering some people aren't lucky to have an education.
I've learned how to budget and the value of money. I have also learnt to have better time management skills when it comes to exams and coursework etc. Overall, it's shaped me up to becoming a better person.Last edited by Ishax; 26-09-2016 at 21:14.
