1. My own place.
This one speaks for itself. My own space, my own rules, my own place… unless you’re sharing of course.
2. The freedom.
The freedom to do what you want, when you want.
3. The people.
There are so many people, you will never meet so many different yet like-minded people in your lifetime. Here is where you meet some real life-long buddies.
4. Being in a different place.
Unlike some, I went to the other end of the country for uni: it was an excellent opportunity and I took it. It was just me and the world.
5. The independence.
It’s really satisfying to be self-dependant and responsible: loved it.
6. Your own food.
I had my own diet, my own likes and dislikes; no bothering with family taste and preferences.
8. The lifestyle.
You’re officially a part of the most attractive, cultured and cool group in society.
9. The unfamiliarity.
Everything was different. I’d never been to this place before properly. I enjoyed working things out and eventually living in this totally new area.
10. The possibilities.
When you start university, possibilities are endless. You can work your hands off forming a cure or go where life takes you. Going to uni makes these opportunities appear tenfold.
