Hello everyone welcome back,
(Having to post this at the time I have because my internet cut out last night meaning this post didn’t go live, which I thought it did!)
Today I thought I’d give you a round up of what my time in college has been like over the past 4 months.
To start, I obviously felt so awkward and with not knowing anyone I felt uneasy being in such a different environment to what I was used to in high school. The change and step up from high school is much more relaxed and it really helps with the fact you can call tutors by their first names rather than calling them miss or sir.
Immediately going into my class, I thought it’d only be small but as the first session carried, more and more people came into the class and eventually there were 36 – 38 of us in that classroom. Naturally I felt anxious and awkward because everyone seemed to be able to make friends pretty quickly. I, on the other hand hadn’t clicked with anyone yet and that felt like a lot of pressure to try and make friends.
Thankfully now, I have mixed with the right bunch of people who I know I will be able to call friends for life. (Or so I hope).
As the weeks went on, I began to get more comfortable being in a different environment in college and really started to enjoy myself. Unfortunately, I have been off a few times due to illness, having my teeth out, and anxiety but I’ve still managed to keep up to date with everything and hand my assignments in on time and managed to do as best as I can, which I’m really happy with.
Yesterday, I had a much needed chat with my main tutor and its safe to say I’m feeling much happier about college in general and going in and getting shit done. Next half term I’ll do another one of these and let you know how I’m feeling and if anything has changed. I’m sorry this post is late with going up, which is such a pain but I’ll post another blog after I post this.
I hope you all have a lovely Christmas, and thank you for reading.
Till next time,
