    Did anyone here keep a blog about their student life during the first year of uni? I'm getting excited about starting at uni and I found this one really interesting. I'd love to read some more if anyone has one they'd like to share! I'd also be interested in any that aren't about the first year.

    Thanks!

    I'm planning on writing some blog entries on my time once September rolls around. I started my blog a few weeks ago and filled it with reviews of stuff I've watched/read/played/made in the mean time, but I stopped writing XD

    I wish I'd kept mine going during my gap, I ended up deleting it. I'll probably re-start one for uni, I'm not sure whether to make it public or not though....

    I recorded all the memories of the first year. Good and bad. Might be fun to look back on.

    Hey, thanks, I'll take a look!

    And thanks to everyone else for posting I'm also thinking about doing one when (/if!) I go, because I'd like people who are excited about starting this time next year to be able to read about my experience and know what to expect. Although once it's actually happening I'll probably be too busy/lazy to do it lol.

    I briefly did a blog when I was at uni (before I dropped out). Will start it up again when I go to uni this year.

    I've already started one, have about six updates so far. Nothing much to put until my course kicks in, but I'll be doing that from September onwards.

    There was a "Freshers diary" in the Education section of the Independent every Thursday (I'm not sure if they've published it online somewhere though)
