Final Year: What I Wish I'd Known

My whole time at University I've listened to final years complaining about how much work they had and how easy we had it. And you know what... they were definitely not exaggerating. Final year is a minefield of deadlines, trips to the library and pre-exam all nighters. With my final semester at University starting tomorrow (WAAAAAAH)  there are a few things I wish I'd known or should have listened to when people told me.

♥ Not knowing what you want to do with your life is completely normal. Even if you've just spent almost three years trying to work it out.

You can't do it all. Something has to give and you have make sacrifices.

♥ At the end of the day you are there for your course. Don't let anything else get in your way.

♥ Getting a 2:1 is great but getting a 2:2 won't end your life.

♥ Organisation is key.

♥ Going out is a treat and a rarity. Mainly because a hangover as a finalist is far worse than the ones you had as a fresher.

♥ Do allow time for fun or you'll drive yourself mental

♥ Apply for jobs early. Most grad scheme applications close. 

♥ Start thinking about your Dissertation early. It catches up on you.

♥ In fact just think about everything early. That way you never get stuck behind.

♥ But most of all... It's your final year. Your final chance. Use it well.

Big ♥,
Rosie
