How to have fun, study hard and keep well
With the excitement that surrounds the madness that is Freshersí Week, itís easy to forget that the following week you will probably be starting lectures! You are going to university (mainly) to work and learn, so we have listed the most important items that you will need to achieve this.
Boring though it may be (unless youíre a budding Jamie or Nigella), you need to eat, and so unless you plan on surviving solely on expensive and unhealthy visits to the nearest kebab shop, youíll need some basic domestic kitchen appliances to prepare and cook food with. If you are living in a shared house you might need more domestic items than if you are in a hall of residence, perhaps some items to make it feel more like home. Donít forget you need to sleep occasionally and hopefully you will remember to wash too!
Try to take advantage of the chance to try something new Ė consider a new sport or join a society. Taking a bike might not only get to university quicker but it could also help you exercise and relax too. A night lounging on bean bags playing board games is a great idea, not only are you displaying your superior brain power to your new friends but itís much cheaper than going out too. A game of Twister is an interesting way to get friendly with your new housemates if nothing else!.
