Life Update: Finishing My First Year at University

I thought it was about time I posted something chit chatty for you guys, telling you all about what I've been up to within the past year. As some of you may already know I have just finished my first year at University studying Fashion Marketing and have come home for a good couple of months before I need to be back in September.

My first year of University wasn't exactly what I expected, I always thought because I’m an incredibly shy person that I’d never really fit in and I’d have a hard time being away from home. I guess I must just be stronger than I thought as I spent the first couple of days crying but then when I met everyone on my course and met my now friendship group it all made it a hell of a lot easier.

Don’t get me wrong the work was hard and caused many tears but if I‘d known three years ago, where I am now I never would’ve believed it. Sixteen year old me was so unsure of where I wanted to go in life and what I wanted to do, which was so unhelped by my secondary school who tried to force us to pick exactly which field we wanted to go into in such little time. If it wasn’t for going to University open days and reading through tons of prospectus’s, I wouldn’t have ever known about Fashion Marketing and found what I wanted to do just buy the quick read of a page.

So I guess what I’m trying to say is... I’m so happy with how far I’ve come within my course and that I've finally found what I was meant to do with my life. If you’re reading this at an age where you are unsure of what you are wanting to do, just carry on and something will pop up out of nowhere, when you least expect it and it may be the best thing that’s ever happened to you.

If you’re reading this preparing yourself for University in September, my advice for you is always be yourself, go out to the fresher’s events, make friends but most importantly work hard! It’s not easy to move away from home and straight away go into a course you may not know very well but keep your head down, work to the best of your ability and that’s all that anyone can ask of you!
