So, it’s now May. University, except for one small presentation, is finished.
It’s a strange feeling really, many people at this stage would have a job lined up for when they graduate, or would be planning to seek one with their free time. At the moment, my plan is to just enjoy the next month or so leading up to Graduation. My reasonings for this are that once I have graduated, I’ll be looking for a job and/or going back to Starbucks in the hope that they’ll take me in back home.
I already summarised my University experience in my post from January, and my opinion really hasn’t changed since then, except that I now know I prefer coursework over exams!
What else is there to say, for the month of June all I have planned is relaxation, theme parks and LAN parties, getting as much fun stuff done before I no longer have the time to do so.
Reading itself is a fantastic university, the fact it’s in such close proximity to the town centre, yet has so much greenery and even a lake on campus makes it that much better than other city universities. In the summer campus is buzzing with activity and on nice days people are out lounging on the greens in the centre, in the winter, all coffee shops are a hub of activity, with plenty of choice you’re sure to find something you like.
Halls experiences are always mixed, sometimes people get a great group of flatmates who live together in second year, while on the other hand you get people who have the most horrid experience, and want to get out of halls as soon as possible. I wouldn’t use this as a reason to not go to University though, since every time it’s always different. If you’re considering going to Uni, go for it. Don’t let this hold you back.
