Student resolutions for the new uni year

Generic students. Seemingly stuck in the 90s. Pic from
I'm currently on my summer holiday after my first year studying at the University of Bristol, and quite frankly, the summer is dragging on for far too long if you ask me. I know, that probably sounds weird, but uni is SO MUCH FUN. I just want to go back NOW please. I had a cracking first year, throwing myself head-first into uni life: I spent my time working on the student paper, performing in a musical, dance show and Glee concert, and going to chocolate society gatherings (around studying, obvs.) Next year I hope to do all that as well as working two part time jobs, a role on the editorial team for the paper, being PR rep for German society and potentially doing some work for the uni TV station too. And I want to join the handball club. So, erm, yeah... perhaps not your typical student life, but I love it all the same.

However, I've decided that I need to make the most of my precious uni years in another sense, and have thus decided to make some resolutions. No, not to study more and drink less (because I'm a bit of a granny on the ole alcohol front). Here are my alternative (ooh, "alternative"... I almost sound edgy) uni resolutions:

1. I will remember it's OK to stay out/up past 2am.

2. I will try new drinks and not just stick to Malibu, Baileys and Amaretto. Mmm... sugar is my friend.

3. I will not get into a tizzy if I ever don't get my ten a day. (Portions of fruit and veg that is, not ciggies. I don't smoke. Eww.)

4. I will be kind to everyone. Well, I'll try anyway. Remind me of this if I am mean to you.

5. I will not take on more than I have time to do - I will learn to say NO!

6. I also will not be so busy that I have no time to socialise.

7. I will cook a new recipe every week. I can see myself slipping into a routine of eating my top comfort food - pasta, cheese and beans (don't knock it till you've tried it) - every night.

Well that should do it. Seven resolutions that will hopefully make my second year of uni a million times better than my first. Which was awesome anyway.


  1. I don't mean to criticise because I really love your blog but I find the UWE joke quite offensive! You may go to Bristol University which, granted, is better statistically than UWE, but UWE is still a university and the people there are working just as hard as you!

    1. That's absolutely fair enough. If it's offending people I will change the picture. It was just meant to be a harmless joke - I'm sure UWE students make jokes about Bristol students too - but the last thing I want to do is offend people. Thank you for your comment and for reading my blog though. I'll change the picture now (I didn't actually make that meme myself, I just saw it online!)
