Well hello there! I’m going into year 1 of uni and I thought that a good way to work things out and not find myself to overloaded with stuff would be to write a blog. At first I thought a diary would be good, then I realised that somewhere down the line I’d most likely put it into the public eye, the exact reason to be announced later; thus this blog was born!

Anyways, enough rambling, thought I’d start it sooner rather than later as I’m checking into accommodation on the 11th!

I thought I’d simply make my first post with some introductory information about oneself.

Going into year 1 of uni, my university of choice being Exeter (Falmouth campus though, unfortunately) I’m going to be studying Politics and International Relations.

Neither or, I simply thought I could get some help along the way, something like that at the very least.

Do feel free to peruse every once in a while, at your own behest of course, once this begins to fill up.

Are you at uni or doing something else? I would very much like to know and thank you

Anyways, no idea what I need to get ready today, largely due in part of the fact I’m pretty sure I’ve got pretty much everything ready.

I think all that is left now is sorting out extra student finance which is what the parents are doing.

Today’s to do list:
- new shoes
- clothes
- new bedding

Honestly I’ve hated how much money we’ve spent getting prepared for uni, spending lots of money absolutely horrifies me and usually if something costs a lot I’ll just not buy it or find a cheaper option

Honestly, just raid Wilko (apart from the clothes and shoes, but everything else!)

You'll soon see that you don't need a load of fancy stuff

Just try and make friends, be social and don't take anything too seriously.

Make sure you keep ontop of your work (regular, consistent & manageable amounts) and you're gucci
