When you're getting ready to go to University, there is a certain amount of things that you get worried about. The first being that everyone in your flat is a complete weirdo... or a serial killer....or a thief. You worry that the kitchen will be a state and no-one will like you and you'll be living in complete awkwardness for a year. The second is that you're going to have a timetable that means your up at 6am every day, 5 days a week; no nights out, no lie ins. You also worry about being away from home and crying the second someone mentions their boyfriend, parent or even their dog. So if your flatmates didn't like you in the first place, they definitely won't like you now.
 You also worry about what to bring; clothes, make-up, decor e.t.c. Personally, I was so worried that I forgot the most important thing, the most necessary thing that you need at University. I forgot my underwear. That means that somewhere in the country is a box full of my knickers that my mum has posted to me... pah!
 I've actually been really lucky with everything. My flatmates are lovely, my timetable isn't the most depressing thing in the world and I haven't had any public breakdowns yet. I have been trailing around the city looking for Fairy Lights though, which has been my only problem as I can't find a single shop that sells them.
When it came to packing, there was a lot of clothes that I couldn't bring. I actually woke up this morning and couldn't find a thing to wear which is worrying because I thought I'd packed the better half of my wardrobe. I did buy a few new things for Uni though that I thought were versatile enough to see me through the year, for every occasion.

Shirt - New Look
Skirt - Asos - Hearts and Crosses 
Leather Jacket - Miss Selfridge 
Laptop Case - Ted baker

The horse print shirt was the cutest thing ever and reminded me last seasons Zara shirts. I've seen others in Primark recently so I might have to expand my collection (Especially considering Primark is going to be the only place I can afford). The only thing with this shirt is because I'm one of very few Southern people here, I'm worried they are going to think I'm one of those girls from Hertfordshire that is obsessed with horses and makes all their friends at Pony Club. (I'm not judging those type of people, I'm just not one of them!) It is the cutest thing though, especially under a jumper with the collar out. 

Who else has just gone to Uni or is going this week? How have you found it so far?
