A bit about me.
Hey, I'm Imogen (or Immi), and if you didn't guess by the title I'm going to be starting my first year starting physics at Lancaster University. Besides physics I enjoy cooking and baking, and the occasional bit of reading although I just haven't had the time for it recently.So, this is it.
I've finally made it to my first year of uni, I've been so excited about this since I was probably about 11 (although the subject I'm doing now is completely different from what I wanted to study at 11). In a weird way, I almost can't believe I've actually done it. Move-in for me isn't until the 30th, so it's very late compared to a lot of people, and I think now that the vast majority of people I know have moved it's really sort of sinking in that it's actually real. Scary, but so exciting.Uni bits
I received 2 scholarships from the university, equalling £3000 in my first year and £1000 in each of my second, third, and fourth years. Finding out about these scholarships was a nice little surprise on results day!
I'm in Pendle College and had to book a slot for move-in yesterday, and it meant I found out which block I was in. I've found a couple of people in the same block as me which is nice.
I also received my timetable yesterday, and it's not as bad as I'd thought it would be (besides starting at 9 a.m. on a Friday and not finishing until 6 p.m.). I don't think it has everything on there yet though, it feels overly empty but we'll see.
Whilst I'm definitely ready to get back to academics, the fact I have not even looked at physics since June is starting to scare me a little, but I've been talking to a couple of other people doing physics and they're all in the same boat as me which definitely makes me feel a lot better.Goals for the year
Definitely just making sure I keep time for myself to let myself fully settle in and get used to a completely new big change.
Join some societies and the gym!
Try and eat mostly healthily.
Sticking to a budget (which I have yet to work out).
Obviously keeping on top of academics.
Keeping my living space liveable
I think that just about sums up everything important at the minute! I'll absolutely try and stick with the GYG this year.
