Now I’m back in Sheffield and nearing the end of exams, I’m turning my thoughts to getting the most out of the rest of first year. As I was here last year but withdrew at this point, I want to make sure I leave university with no regrets of missed opportunities.
In the first semester I got involved with as much as possible. I signed up for this blog as well as another university blog and a football blog. I joined 3 football teams, rejoined the charity Marrow and the Latin American society. I explored some more of Sheffield and I have even made it to exams this time round!
I’ve made a plan of what I hope to achieve before summer, I think it’s a good way to challenge yourself and make sure you don’t miss out on what’s on offer. Essentially it’s a mid first year bucket list:
- Go to various Varsity events
- Explore the Peak District more
- Document my time in Sheffield through making videos and photography
- Join another society
- Do more activities relating to my course
- Learn a new language
It’s nothing spectacular and anyone can try these things or create a more personal list. Why not give it a go and see what you can achieve in the next 5/6 months before the summer break.
