    A fresh start! The chance to meet new people, learn new things, and ultimately, learn more about myself...as cliche as it may sound.

    Back when I was starting uni, I was looking forward to meeting new people and trying to be more social (didn't happen).

    Is it weird that i'm not really feeling excited about it at all? I just see it as another step in life.

    I'm honestly terrified to go and don't know if I'll cope, but I'm excited to buy new things for my room😂 I'm hoping to gain more confidence and be more independent

    Pretty much that. It'll be a different place, but the same system applies. People and courses never change.

    Being somewhere I'd be more comfortable with that's a bit more in the centre like the rest of the world.

    I was excited about making friends with people on my landing and being more sociable. Also getting to study more of the subject I loved at Alevels. That didn't go too well- I made dinner at 2 in the morning to avoid seeing people, hated my course then dropped out before Christmas. :rolleyes:
    Next time around it was being closer to my bf and that one went way better.

    Why did you try and avoid seing people?

    Depression. I don't know why, but I just really didn't want to be near people.
