Pre-3rd Year University Thoughts

Pre-3rd Year University Thoughts

With the start of uni just around the corner, I thought it would be a good opportunity to write about my thoughts going into a new university year. This is a post that I have done at the start of both previous years at university, and so I wanted to make sure to write about my pre-university thoughts at the start of this year as well.

Pre-3rd Year University Thoughts

Back to commuting 

If you are new to my blog, in my first year of university I was a commuting student and I am going back to commuting this year. This is something that I am looking forward to because, in my first year, I really enjoyed the experience of commuting. I am also planning on documenting my commuting experience more this year than I previously did in my first year in a new vlogging series that will be called ‘The Commuter Diaries’. I have really been enjoying vlogging recently, and so sharing my commuting experience in this way is something I can’t wait to do this year. 

A New Normal

Of course, this year (especially our first term) is going to look a bit different and, at the university I go to, most of the content is being taught online in our first term. After having a few meetings this morning with my supervisors on Zoom, I feel more at ease about the new normal of being taught online. Before today, I was wondering how new teaching would work and what it would be like this year, but thankfully after some really helpful meetings today to start the year, I feel better about getting busy with uni work and adapting to the new normal and am feeling hopeful and optimistic that things will begin move forward in terms of face-to-face teaching when it is safe to do so.  

Final Year - Goals and Intentions

My intention this year is to make the most of what my final year of uni has to offer. I want to immerse myself in learning more about new topics, spending time with others where and when is safe to do so, and really looking to the positives and enjoying what this year has to offer me. I can’t believe it is my final year of uni, it seems only yesterday that I was heading onto campus for my first ever lecture, and now I am starting 3rd year. That is why I want to see the good in this year and involve myself completely where possible.

I would love to know in the comments; are you starting your first/ a new year at university? And how are you feeling about it?
