Today I've decided to share my outlook on university - the good, the bad and the ugly - in glorious technicolour....
The good! The madness and memories. I have done some things that I will certainly look back on in the future and wonder what possessed me to believe that that was a good idea, although it certainly means I have some pretty impressive stories.
I have met such a wide range of people from such different walks of life that I would hope I would keep in touch with way past the end of university.
The bad! The pressure of multiple deadlines all looming at once. The pain of a 9 o'clock lecture when you've been out the night before (self-inflicted I know, but still!).The difficulties of a group dividing when there is an argument between two people and everyone gets dragged in. The finding that you can't do a unit as well as you'd hoped and panicking about your grades.
The ugly! The state of you and your flatmates after a particularly heavy night out. The mess that the kitchen will inevitably land up in when everyone has cooked and no one wants to clean up just yet. The night you decide to stay in and still get woken up by the drunken flatmates coming home as they struggle through the front door.
The time at university may not be perfect, but I certainly think that by the end you certainly realise it was worth all the tear, tantrums and madness. I'm hoping so anyway!
