Dear Diary: I Moved to University!

Hello my loves, I'm so sorry it's been a couple weeks since I posted, but I bet you can guess what's been keeping me so busy - yup, university!

On Tuesday 15th September I finally moved to uni! Being out of education since March, and dreading results day until August, this move has definitely been a long time coming.

This post isn't really anything more than a quick update and a bit of a ramble as to what comes next, and right now there are a lot of things to think about.

How long will I even be here?

While I'm so grateful that universities re-opened for first years, and I can officially say I've had my halls experience, it isn't looking likely I will be staying in the city for much longer. This was always a possibility however. I'm trying not to let it get me down too much, but as coronavirus cases increase and winter nears closer, it's looking all the more likely I'll be back in my little hometown, or maybe moving in with my boyfriend before the new year.

Until then however I am making the most of my first semester and my new surroundings!

What sort of things will I be posting?

Now that I'm finally getting to dig into my amazing philosophy, German, and law modules (law is my elective this year), I'd love to share more posts centred on that! I'm thinking of making weekly 'Week in My Life' or 'How I Spent the Week' posts. I've also thoroughly filled up my academic plate, currently in the early stages of creating my new society, and entering external essay competitions. So if you like academics then you're in luck!

Naturally I'd also love to share my experience of a socially distant freshers, how I'm getting organised, mental health updates, and as I simply cannot resist, a university room tour. 

And me being me, I have already spent half my maintenance loan on new books which I can't wait to review for you guys also.

Am I organised yet? Not in the slightest

While I'd love to tell you guys that I've got my shit together and will be posting by next week, I genuinely have no clue what my posting schedule looks like right now >.< I'm currently very busy just trying to settle in and get through chapters upon chapters of pre-reading - yes, I'm looking at you international law... 

My creativity and desire to post is higher than it's ever been, so I hope I can give you guys some more content! Especially as you've all been lovely enough to get me to 3k views <3.

Well it's nearly 2 am and I have lots of work to get through tomorrow, so I think I'll leave it here! Hopefully this reassures some of you that I have not in fact fallen off the face of the earth, keep an eye out for new posts soon.

Take care x
