When those three summer months come round, it’s hard to resist the temptation of going on holiday with friends, especially to get away from the 9am lectures and 5,000 word essays. It’s important however to be responsible when booking a holiday, and to not scrimp and save the important bits! Plenty of research is important, don’t rush into the first thing you see and like, make sure you know everything there is to know about the place and area, don’t go on holiday blindfolded!
There are many ways you can make your uni room feel and look great. On first moving to uni I wanted to make my room look as homely as possible as it can be quite daunting moving for the first time. Adjusting your room to your style can make you feel more comforted in your new surroundings!
As many of us are now back at university, a new semester is as good a time as any to try and better yourself in areas that, perhaps in your first semester, were lacking slightly. For example, want to try and improve your attendance or grades? Maybe try and lose some of those pesky pounds you put on over the last few months? Or even being more frugal with your loan?
If you haven’t already been bombarded with leaflets, free lollipops and invitations to join absurd promotional events, you are obviously lucky enough to live in a University with non-aggressive letting agencies nearby. For those of us who do, the mad rush to find a student house to live in for the next academic year could hardly have gone unnoticed. Hunting for housemates, signing contracts, paying deposits… the whole thing is all a bit bewildering.
As a student, money can be a struggle so in any area you can save, you definitely should. Whether that is by cutting back on nights out, doing a little less shopping or visiting some of these sites I am about to give you, it all helps!
