Ready for Semester Two...

Yes, you heard right. I am preparing myself for my final semester at university. Bottle of vodka in one hand, and a shit tonne of work to do in the other... BRING IT ON.

I haven't spoken that much about my uni life on this blog, so why not give you a little run down now?

I started university back in 2014. Little 18-year-old me, petrified of anything that involved me being the slightest bit social. I came to Winchester University to study Film Production - you may believe this is one of those 'doss' subjects, but let me tell you, I've had more mental breakdowns here than I think I will ever have for the rest of my life. I met so many cool people over the two and half years I've been living in Winchester - some I have sadly drifted away from this past year. 

So to prepare for my return to university, I'm setting myself three 'goals' if you will... 

1. Organisation

As my last post stated, I wish to be a lot more organised. I want to be on top of all my work so I don't have the last minute panic I usually do. I want to be able to finish all of my work without having to rush through and complete stuff half-ass. I want to be able to say that I'm proud with what I'm producing.

2. Be more social

I miss all of my friends. I used to have such a huge friend group in first year. I understand that people change, but I miss hanging out with those people. I miss going out, getting absolutely pissed out of my mind and dancing with my friends all night. I miss that I don't do any of that anymore. 

Let me tell you a story: right at the end of first year, when the semester had finished and the majority of students had gone home, I had what I consider to be one of the best nights of my life. The halls I lived in were pretty much empty, apart from the odd student who was making the most of their money and staying until they had to move out. Some of my group of friends (mostly those in my flat) decided the best way to see out the year was to have a massive water fight. I have never laughed so much in my life - being so stealthy and hiding in the shadows. It sounds lame now when I tell you about it, but those are really the times I miss.

It is now just a bit awkward if I meet up with someone that I haven't bothered keeping in touch with, and that haven't bothered keeping in touch with me. But that's something I want to change. I want to see as much of those people who made my first year of uni so memorable before it's too late and we all go our separate ways. 

Here's some of the snaps over the last couple of years - damn, I love these people...


My last goal is: TO HAVE FUN!

This is such a major thing for me. This is my last semester at university (especially because my course don't have any exams), so I need to make the most of it.

I am so bored of my course at the moment, but I need to change my attitude and look at the positives: it's allowing me to be at uni on my own for another few months. It's allowing me to be creative, and it's allowing me to spend time with other people who I adore. 

I constantly have the attitude that 'I hate this course', 'I don't want to do it anymore' and things like that, but it's not as bad as I'm making out, and I need to realise that. I need to have fun. 

I want to make sure I go out and socialise as well - last semester I was a boring old granny who wanted to be in bed by 11pm every night. I need to start enjoying myself while I'm still young. I need to make the most of this time, and how it's kind of (emphasis on 'kind of') acceptable for me to go out a drinking mid-week and drinking to my absolute peak, and then having a hangover from hell the next day. I need to make the most of that, because after that finishes and I get a job, all of that will change. 

So those are my goals for my final semester of university... Have you guys got any going into second semester?
