How much student debt are you in?
A hell of a lot, for bachelor's and masters, but my PhD was fully funded. The other loans have inflated with interest and I'm not looking forward to the extra bill to pay when I finally do go out to work.

Bump, I have been in four different relationships now since the start of this journey in 2012.
First in 2013 I met a girl in my halls who was first year and I was second year. She has got a master's degree now and is a mum with her husband.
2015 I met a new girl who was two years older than me studying her masters and I was just finishing off my bachelor's. I haven't heard from her much since we broke up in 2017 before my masters, but i heard she is not married yet.
2018 I met a new girl during the second semester of the first year PhD and she graduated in the summer and started her masters in a different university from 2018-19.
I was single through the whole pandemic and just focused on the research and wasted a lot of time in my room. I then met my new girlfriend in the summer whilst the Euro's were being played and she was going into her final year of her integrated masters. She is really stressed with this masters and I barely get much time to see her as I was also stressed out during the final hurdle of the phD thesis. She also hates being a stressed student and she told me she will never do a PhD.

That's right folks. I started my university journey in September 2012 and I still remember the day my parents dropped me off to my first university accomodation. Here we are 9 years later and I have finally finished, BSc MSc and PhD.

Since it has been my reality for nearly a decade and my whole adult life, I'm starting to think now what... and it's a very scary time for me.

Ask me anything
wow and I'm planning to just do 3 years and enter the world of work lol

The problem with phD is that you study an in depth part of computer science and you forget the basics.

Compared to others, i feel my question will be quite basic. I'm starting uni in Septemeber and i'm quite anxious about it, I've got a few questions and i hope it's not to many! feel free to not answer some if you don't want to!

Is it easy to settle in once you're there? Does the homesicknesses go away quite easily? How does washing clothes and stuff work at uni? Are you able to see family (a lot aka lots of free time)? Are there lots of exams (I'm planing on studying History)?
And do you have any tips or tricks or just some general advice for someone who's generally always anxious, all of the time, and doesn't like being away from home atm?

Why did you join TSR this month rather than nine years ago?

1. Yes it is easy to settle and term times goes very quickly. Term time is only 7months of the year so a bachelor's degree is just 21 months in total.
2. Most accomodations have a washing room and you have to pay a lot of money to use it.
3. Definitely during undergrad you have a lot of time to do
4. You can live at home for uni

Yes I am already suffering as I have these qualifications but with no work experience.
There's always time to build up your experience
I found it quite difficult to get my first graduate job (I had no experience either) but once you've had one job it really does help when looking for another. Once your foot is in the door so to speak it feels a lot easier
Hope you find something :hugs:
