My Thoughts on Second Year of University

Oh, hey, blogosphere. It's been a while, hasn't it? It feels like forever since I've just taken the time to chill out and write a blogpost. Maybe some of that is to do with everything that I've had going on in my final semester of second year which — and I can't believe this as I'm writing it — is over. 

So, second year. I feel like I did a complete 180 turnover this year and I don't know how I did it. Now, I'm not usually one for believing in fate/destiny, so maybe it was more my own determination and will to put myself out there and change things for the better. Even if didn't consciously think about these things at the time.

If you're wondering what I'm talking about, it's partly the best decision that I made during uni: to start the theatre society. Partly this decision, partly the people that I met as a result of this. I just became a happier, smilier and generally better person because of the experience that I had assistant directing a couple of shows and making so many friends from doing this. It's a total difference compared to the lack of community that I felt at the start of second year with having left halls to now: I have made genuine good friends, bettered myself and made many more memories than I would have if I hadn't joined the theatre. All of which I am so grateful for.

Academically, things improved as well, but I shan't go into too much detail about that as it's summer now and I'm going to enjoy it. I enjoyed my modules and am proud of my overall grade, but I know that things need to improve for next year even still. It's crazy to think I'll be applying for my masters in September but I'm excited (and anxious) for a new start when I graduate next year (omg). 

So, that's a brief summary of what I've been up to. I hope to be a bit more regular with the blogposts now that I have the time (including some foodie reviews from around Notts), so please stay with me for that!
