New Beginnings

August 24, 2016

WOW!! I can't believe it. Two more weeks and I will be on my way to starting one of the most scariest but exciting chapters of my life, and it will all take place in this beautiful town pictured above. I remember one evening, back when I must have been in year seven or eight, just lying there on my bedroom floor thinking about this exact time in my life. I even created a little university section in my "Folder of Achievements" as I like to call it now where I stored anything I had achieved and was proud of like certificates and praise notes from teachers and what not.

I have been dreaming about going to university ever since I can remember and it still feels so surreal now that it's all happening. Although I never knew what university I wanted to go to until I started the application process, but all I knew was that I wanted to go somewhere so bad. It wasn't until I actually went to my interview that I fell in love with Huddersfield and the university. Initially I was planning to go to Nottingham Trent because on paper it looked the best but after my interview at Huddersfield, I knew there was no question where I wanted to go and I had my heart set on it ever since. 

You wouldn't believe the relief and excitement I felt when I received a text message from Huddersfield on results day morning telling me that I was accepted and now had an unconditional offer. I actually got out of bed before 8am and thats something I haven't done since I finished college, but I was just so happy. Obviously nobody was awake yet because it was like 7:30 in the morning and it's the summer holidays so to try and calm down my excitement because I knew for a fact I wasn't getting back to sleep, I went downstairs, poured myself a cup of tea and stuck Gossip Girl on. My  hyper excitement quickly came back when my mum came downstairs with Joseph though.

This is all so exciting and I know this is a bit of a ramble but I guess I wanted to write this post so that I can look back on it in the future and remember how I am feeling right now. Everything is all so new again and its like starting my first day of school, but obviously its a bit more bigger than that. 

I like to think of myself as a relatively independent person so although I am going to miss my family like crazy, I just can't wait to get out there in the big wild world and explore as much as I can. I have so many more responsibilities now like cooking my own meals, washing my own laundry, and taking care of my own finance. I guess that fact that I am technically a young adult now really hit me when I got a letter from Scottish Gas last week. I don't even own a house yet! I am perfectly comfortable in student accommodation for now thank you Scottish Gas. Honestly, I don't even know how they got my name and address. What a mystery!

If any of my readers are starting university this September then please let me know your stories. What university are you going to? What will you be studying? How are you feeling about it all?
