Moving back to Cardiff

Hi all,

So this week I’ve started the moving in process ready to embark on my final year. I can’t believe how fast the time has gone! It genuinely feels like I moved to Cardiff for the first time only yesterday. I really can’t believe it’s three years! In fact the other day, I went back into school to chat to the new sixth formers and my headmaster reminded me it was 5 years since I was in their position. To me that just feels a bit surreal. What’s even more nerve-wracking is that i’ll not be a student in approximately 10 months. I’ll have to start going out a finding a job! A scary prospect. But at the same time really exciting. For now though I’m ready for final year. I’ve got a beautiful house, I’m back in the beautiful city I love and the course this year looks like it’s going to be really interesting.

At the other end of the spectrum I’ve got friends who are just about to move to Cardiff for their first year of University. I guess I am kind of jealous! If that includes you, then congratulations :D My best advice would be to make the most of your time here. You’ve only got 3-4 years (7 in the case of medics). Enjoy it! It will fly by.

Also try and really explore the city. Freshers week you’ll have time to get to know the university, campus and general student-y stuff. Don’t be afraid to venture further afield. I don’t just mean the city centre, but take trips to Barry Island, visit one of the many castles in Wales, or take a walk on Caerphilly Mountain. There are so many things to do out and about and it’d be a shame to miss anything.

Anyway, I hope you’re excited for this year. I can’t wait! I guess I’ll see you very soon
