Being a student at university definitely has its challenges but it’s also one of the best periods of your life and has many perks. So, hold onto your hats, because we’re about to tell you why!
The Novelty of Adulting
Half the fun of being a student is moving into a more adult time in your life, more responsibility and more freedom than ever before. This means that even a slightly responsible decision has a delicious novelty. For example, paying a bill becomes less of a nagging worry and more of a financial manoeuvre made entirely by you! Even more so if you’ve moved out of home while studying.
The Safety Net is Still There
Luckily because you’re doing all this newfangled adult stuff for the first-time people are willing to cut you some slack if you make a mistake. Friends and family are always ready and willing to help you out too. With the added benefit of how impressed they’ll be by your ordered and proper life.
Enough with all the responsible stuff because real talk, those holidays boy howdy they are immense. Nothing is more satisfying then watching people heading to and from their daily lives while you’re kicking back channelling your inner sloth! Or seeing people who only have two weeks of Christmas leave while you have off the whole season of Summer. Or watching kids go to school knowing you don’t have to learn anything for a whole month because its inter-trimester break!
Sweet Mary could anything in the universe be better then waking up at 10am every day? I doubt it. With proper time management your whole uni experience can be spent within the sweet hours of midday to five! It’ll never happen again so don’t take it for granted, enjoy those amazing mornings spent in bed and those stupendous late nights. Because when they’re gone, by everything holy, you’re going to miss them.
The Experiences and Mates
Student life has so many new things going on, it can almost be a bit overwhelming but luckily that’s the best part. With so many new ideas, opportunities and people you get to sample almost everything. Go out and enjoy all these new places, sights, sounds and tastes with a couple of new mates! You might even make some friends for life.
Being a Uni student is one of the best periods of your life so embrace every single part of it and to quote a very wise man by the name of Ferris Buller; “life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
