In this blog, i thought i would tell you a little bit about my sister and her journey through the education process. My sister went to university in Sussex and as we lived in Plymouth, she lived in a student flat and got a taxi home at the weekend as she didn’t drive at the time. Travelling back and forth could be challenging but she decided to set up a continual contract with Taxis Plymouth which cut costs down a lot and she was always picked up and dropped off on time and safely.
The reason I’m sharing that information with you is because, when choosing a university, you may be thinking about being away from home and it can often put people off. Like my sister, a lot of people are homely and get homesick when away from their home and family but, there is always a solution.
If you were thinking of doing the same as my sister did and taking that route of going to the university in Sussex, then you can always set up a contract with leading taxi companies and go home on the weekends. Or, if you live close enough, set up a way of going home every evening, that way, you won’t have to stay in accommodation and you can have the best of both worlds.
Starting somewhere new can be very daunting, especially if you don’t know anybody there and you are having to make friends all over again. Instead of feeling scared about the unknown, be excited! Change your thoughts to positive ones and look forward to the new beginning you may be about to have.
When my sister first went to the university in Sussex, she was so nervous and kept saying what most people will be saying now… ‘what if nobody likes me?’ but… does it really matter? You are going to university to change your life and to become something that you want to be. So if you make friends with everybody there or if you make friends with just one person, just remember, you are changing your life for the better.
