HOW has it been 10 years since I left uni?!


On Saturday my cousin set off for uni in Sheffield and it was a reminder that it has been 10 years since I packed up and set off to Liverpool to start my university adventure. 10 YEARS! Where has that time gone? 

I was super jealous as she spoke about parties, drinking games and Freshers Week! A whole load of fun ahead. 

So if I could speak to my 18-year-old self now, what advice would I give….?

* Don't panic when your bathroom floods on the first night - a soggy carpet for the first couple of days honestly isn't the end of the world. 

* Don't worry about crying in the toilets during a night out on Freshers Week because you're homesick. You'll get over it and Liverpool will soon become you're home. Just wipe away the tears and drink a few more Apple VK's.

* Put your foot down with the flatmates when the kitchen was getting out of control - maggots aren't cool. 

* Dancing to the Baywatch theme tune on a Saturday night in the Union will never get old. Keep shimmying. 

* Missed a few lectures? It's fine. You'll still end up with your dream job. 

* Take ear plugs. A bedroom by the front door of the block isn't ideal… 

* Keep an open mind. The girl you're not that keen on when you first meet her? She'll end up being your BFF… 

* Most importantly - have fun. It's the best time of your life and the memories you'll make will be priceless.
