UPDATE: I'M OFF TO UNI!




I rarely let things get personal on my blog, I'm not really sure why, I've just never felt the need to delve into my personal life. However, finally, after taking two years more than I should have, I'm off to University and I just want to keep you updated just incase things start changing on DF. 

At 20 I'm finding the whole thing utterly terrifying, so I dread to think what my 18 year old friends are going through. If starting a new course with new people wasn't daunting enough, I'm actually going to have to look after myself - ha, this is going to be one interesting learning curve. 

For anyone curious as to why I'm going to uni at 20, I completed my A levels 2 years ago and in fact did really well. However my head was definitely not in the right place and after many melt downs about the whole thing, I decided to put off going to university and head to college instead. Having just turned 18 I was still able to get on a BTEC course without any fee's, so if you're completing your A levels but don't feel ready to ride the uni bus make the most out of the free education whilst you still can, it's a big commitment both mentally and financially so don't rush into it if you're not ready. 

After my auditions for uni, I realised there was no way in hell I'd have ever got onto the course I'm doing now during my A Levels. It's amazing how productive and inspired you are when you're doing a course you love and not 3 subjects that absolutely suck (and ignore any idiot that makes you feel stupid doing BTEC at the end of the day they can both get you into uni so the jokes on them when they're struggling and you're breezing through). 

In a way I don't feel so worried about the making friends bit because I found making friends at college really easy, but it doesn't make it any less scary - especially when you have to live with them ha! College has taught me to be a lot more patient with people and to think before I open my gob, so I will definitely be packing these skills first. Plus 3 of my friends are going to the same uni as me so if all falls apart I know I have people I can turn to. 

I am definitely going to miss my family, especially my Mum. After 20 years at home it's going to be tough to move away and not have my mum to come home to talk about about my day, chatting over Skype with some dodgy wifi connection doesn't exactly have the same effect. But it's about time I grew up and flew the nest, I'm sure it won't be long before I'm back begging for some decent home cooked grub!

I am excited though, I get to continue studying/training in my favourite thing ever - Musical theatre! And I honestly cannot wait to move into my flat and organise my shit - I bloody love organising! Just need to suck it up and dive in at the deep end, after all everyones in the same boat right? 

Anyway the reasoning behind this post was to warn you that things are going to be a bit hectic over the next couple of weeks for me and I will try and schedule posts etc, but I'm not going to have the same amount of free time I've had over the past 3 months. Things may be a bit here there and everywhere on both the blog and the YouTube, but make sure you're following me on Bloglovin so you don't miss a thing! 

Good luck to anyone else starting uni, here's to what people say are the best years of our lives! Also if you have or know any good uni related blog posts send them my way!!
