My first year of University will soon be over and a part of me is like…
and the other half of me is like…
Looking back I am so glad I choose to go to university and although I did not go to my first choice university, I am really happy being at Bristol. It is far enough away from home that I am forced to be independent but it is close enough that I can jump on a train and be home in half an hour. I have also met so many lovely people this year which is incredible, before starting University I was extremely anxious that I would not make any friends or fit in, but I did and as cliche as it sounds ‘everyone is in the same situation so it is okay. I feel like I have gained friends for life through Natalie, Jack, Ella who are my flatmates, I can completely be myself around them which is the best feeling, with acceptance, comes happiness.
Each of those pictures warms my heart and makes me realise how much I change my hair style and colour. As I mentioned earlier, I am so so happy I decided to come to University because if I didn’t, I wouldn’t have created such amazing memories and friends.
So back to my course…
Next year I get to choose which modules I study on my undergraduate degree (English Literature with writing) and I do not what to chose. On Wednesday I am going to a module fair, which should help me decide out of these things…
I will have to take the following compulsory modules:
- Forms of Reading/Reading Forms
- Occasions for Writing
Plus two of the following optional modules:
- Shakespeare’s World of Words
- Exploring the Eighteenth Century
- Romanticism Unbound
- Victorian Frictions
- British Writing – 1900 – 1950
- Imagining America
