Question is really in the title - If you could do these last 6/7/8/9 weeks again, what would you change?
I would move into halls, living at home is ruining uni for me. And I wouldn't have spent so much time with people I know from before uni, I've hardly met anyone new. Would change who I sit with in lectures, and go to lunch with. I would go out more and make more effort to just invite myself places, and be less shy. I'd change just about everything really. Only thing I did right was choose the best course for me.
stay out later and go to more stuff with other students instead of staying in and going on TSR lol.
move into halls, spend less money on **** so i'm not languishing at the bottom of my overdraft with so much stuff to pay for and nothing to pay for it with.
I think (since I didn't answer this myself) I would've not turned up to my one and only intro lecture in a mood and spent the entire hour looking around the classroom thinking about how much I didn't fit in. Also, I would've done a different course!
I would have tried to make a bit more of an effort to go out with my flatmates in fresher's week...oh and I should have tried to keep on top of all the work right from the very start and not let it all build up so much!
Actually not tried as hard with people, then when the initial wariness occured I wouldn't have become so bitter that everybody didn't love me. /melodrama
i'd have asked my family to stay in the country for a while longer before leaving me...im an international student...otherwise everything else is pretty awesome!
I would have waited for a place in halls or made more of an effort to spend time with my house mates. I'd also have done more of my work earlier on and gone over my notes.
I would have probably tried to talk to more people from my course. Most people i've met don't do my course so i'm a bit of a loner when i go to lectures.
I'm not a fresher but I hated my freshers week. I wish I hadn't been ill and so worried of what people would think of me (due to being ill) and gone out more and had fun.
Probably some of the following:
- Actually have a break in the summer (instead of working) so I'm not completely exhausted before even starting.
- Not worry too much about the work (even though we started getting assignments a few days in).
- Generally relax and be more forthcoming to people I haven't met before.
- Reverse my no-alcohol policy.
- Go out a few times.
Yeah, so quite a bit...
very little. i would have been less uptight in my first week or so but it went okay. i'd just have settled into a more sustainable work pattern, i'm not great at time management.
i wouldnt have eaten loadsa takeaway and choc and put on the freshers 15 in the first 2 weeks!
