University | Humorous Hints & Tips |

I finished University a year ago, and I am proud to say I graduated with a 2:1 BA Hons in Business Management. The majority of students-to-be would have already chosen their desired University options and therefore I thought I would pull together a humorous post about some hints and tips for University to put a light spin on a situation that can be quite stressful and daunting for a lot of you!

1.  No matter what year you're in, your grades DO count. Don't fall victim to "the first year doesn't count" 

2.  At the beginning of the year you'll always make an effort with your look but by the end you really will not care - sitting in the library with your hair doused in Batiste and in a ponytail will become a regular thing. 

3.  New books are daylight robbery.. scrap that.. even used books are daylight robbery. But they need to be bought so bite the bullet and look for the best deal of an expensive situation!

4. Do you know how to budget? If not, learn - it will definitely be worth it.

5.  Believe it or not, the library is your friend. You may laugh now, but you'll be living in it by the end of the year.

6.  You will have no back or arms after lugging 1,573 books around the Uni campus for study.

7. Post-it notes and highlighters help you wake up and focus when there are 1,568,569 things to think about during exam time.

8.  Sophia and Simon were my partners in crime and best friends - it was great to share the journey with them and know I wasn't the only one that was stressed. It's always good to have partners in crime.

9. You'll meet a lot of people who you'll question how on earth they got into uni or who they are even still attending. 

 10. You don't have to party or get absolutely blind drunk to have a good time.

11. Whilst 'living' in the library, a bag full of snacks helps because let's face it, finishing those assignments into the early hours needs some nibbles!
12. You know those books you'll buy for those 1,572 lectures in a week.. you probably won't use them throughout the whole year, BUT just as the exam comes, BOOM - you need it.. where is it? 
13. And finally, you will never get away from the generalisation and view of being a student means that your lazy and you do no work - just accept it because you will never change their opinion.
Are you heading off to Uni this year or have you just finished and can relate to my humorous words of wisdom?
