    Hey
    So I'm a first year atm and having a mixed experience- got good friends but I have been getting very lonely and unhappy about living away. At one point I missed a few weeks of uni because of it D:
    So I realise this is something I need to live and learn. but I've got the rest of first year to do that.

    Here's the thing- my boyfriend is going to be moving back to my hometown (we've been 200 miles away this year) which is an hour from my uni. We're thinking about getting a flat together and I could commute to uni.

    Financially I can afford it, and I think I can use the journey to do reading and work- I think I'll focus more and get better grades as I will be forced to spend time in the library.

    I have lots of friends in both cities and since I'll be living with my bf will never have no one to go out with. I can always stay over at someones place I think.

    Also, if we do fall out or break up I can easily go home or move out, so that's not really an issue

    I'm most likely going to go for it, but thought maybe I could get advice or opinions

    How far is the commute?

    If it's an hour, it won't be so bad.

    One hour train journey obvs it'd be a bit more getting to and from the stations but that doesn't bother me too much I don't think.

    Should also add, on occasions I want to stay but don't have anyone who can put me up for the night I'm happy to book a hotel (for example if I have a 9am exam 😜 As I do this Saturday hahaha)
