1. Money will likely be in short supply. You’ll find a student loan doesn’t stretch very far.
2. It’s likely that you’ll feel a bit homesick at first, but for most individuals that doesn’t last too long. Just throw yourself into the activities around you and try to avoid any visits home.
3. Your first week of classes will be a huge let down. They’re usually uninspiring – but get better with time. Expect to do a lot of work on your own as you don’t get taught at university. (They just spew out information and facts).
4. When you first meet your room-mates or the others in your class, expect long pauses and awkward silences. You will still be total strangers with no knowledge of each other – but that will pass in a day or two.
We had to attend experiments outside of class for bonus & participation marks.
I fell asleep in one of them.
Is this part of the experiment?
I sure hope not!
Truth be told, I should be studying.
But I am not.
