I am also a bit worried about being flooded with too many lectures per day leaving me with no time to leave my room.
Good luck - I think medics seem to have a good social life? I’ll get back to you

Okay so your timetable is going to be fairly busy. However, some days will certainly be less busy than others, and you will always have breaks at times during the day for lunch etc. Make use of the warmer evenings before the nights fully draw in - have a walk once you're finished but before you eat. :yep: Then you'll also have the weekends to go out a bit further and do some more exercise etc.

I'm currently doing full days online and it hasn't been terrible.

Have you started yet?
I read an article somewhere saying a walk before you start working and one at the end of the day can help

What course are you doing?
I'm not doing medicine but this is my biggest worry! I also want time to socialise and do my other hobbies. Study-life balance is important to me

Im doing international relations with Japanese! I don't have many lectures but I get scared when people talk about the amount of independent hours you have to do...I like working out, watching anime and I also wanted to start a side hustle so i need to learn time management. Very anxious. How about you?

Watching anime certainly won't be more difficult.

If you're worried about the number of hours written on module summaries for independent study - don't. Those figures are guides only. On a course like international relations you will have a number of essays to do but you are unlikely to have any formal assignments actually due until late October/early November I imagine. Before that it'll simply be weekly reading. I believe Japanese usually involves some more regular tasks but most of them don't usually involve a huge amount of time each.

I'm just starting my postgrad, but of my interests one of them is pending time on :tsr:

I don't really view Japanese as "work" as it's my hobby (its 25% of my degree). Thanks for the reassurance, i'm not looking to be the best or a top student I just want to do well and be engaged! It might sound stupid but what does "reading" actually mean, like do you just read information to put into your essays?

You'll be set reading of a book chapter or journal article which you'll then discuss in Seminar groups (possibly online, perhaps in person) each week.

Making friends rn. I'm in my room, and a few of my flatmates are in the kitchen rn. I spoke to them earlier and everyone seems nice, but my social anxiety is making it hard for me to go in there and meet everyone else. I really hate this because I used to be really gregarious when I was younger.

Ikr :woo::woo:
Oh wow lool
I've only just started year 13 :mmm:

Aww thank you, you're making me blush :blushing:
Same to you :heart:
Spoiler:
Show
I know I should be calm about it but I'm starting to get very panicky again :"(
Less than a month left omg jsksksoskdkeie :cry:
The real question is how much coffee you're drinking by the end

:hugs:No stress, only excitement! Seriously though a bit of panic is normal but you're ON TRACK and I hope the application going off is a moment of calm at least?

making friends, i can't see myself making friends over zoom or other social medias, it's just not the same as face to face. also i hope i get along with my flatmates lol
Ugh I completely agree - it seems too awkward to do one-on-one Zooms, say, on day one, but it also feels like you can't get to know anyone in a massive Zoom call :facepalm:

But we're all in the same boat I guess so something will work itself out
