A note from Joelle...
This week has been really hard for me. It finally hit me that I am 700 miles away from my home (in another country) and family and even though I have lots of university friends around me, I still felt really lonely at times. I like my degree choice, but I can't wait for first year to be over and done with, so I can just get on with life (my course is 4 years instead of 3)!
The lectures were incredibly overwhelming at the start as well, plus my timetable might as well had been written in Sanskrit!
On the bright side, the weather this week was glorious (quite odd for northern Scotland) and I hope this week will be much, much better!
I found these quotes earlier this week and they stuck with me for days. I hope they inspire you too!
