I’m just about to enter my third year of university (dun dun dun) and strangely enough I’m not nervous. There feels like a bizarre prerequisite for students to be panicked in their last years of uni but I’m not feeling the stress yet. However, I’m sure this ‘easy like a Sunday morning’ feeling will cease to exist after my first lecture on dissertations has begun. As a working gal, I’m more worried about employment at the moment as it’s something that I need in order to stay in uni.
As my parents live abroad there is less room for ‘running home to mummy and daddy’ and more room for ‘figure it out on your own’. Don’t get me wrong, my parents are incredibly supportive, but that sensation of a security blanket is very absent as running home would actually involve flying home. Therefore, finding a job is necessary. I think an appointment with the careers department is needed on my return to Leicester.
I am excited for the year ahead and I want the feeling to last. My experience at university has been an incredible one thus far and I’m not sure I’m ready for it to end. Last year saw the emergence of a group I co-founded called Unisnap (an online platform where the group captures student fashion around the university campus) and I’m very exited to expand on the group further – so look out for us in our hoodies!
