As a fresher, you should be ready to have fun and learn new things while enjoying your first year. You are now taking charge of your life, thus mistakes are unavoidable. Adult life is hard! There’s always space for error while preparing to leave your parents, from paperwork to packing.
To ensure a distinct fresher experience, avoid the following blunders. Here are tips to help you avoid them.
You don’t have to pack everything. It’s not only intimidating, but it causes you to forget and lose things. You can leave everything you buy there. There are shops and supermarkets where you can buy items for your courses or for your lodging. So build a list of things you can’t get anywhere else.
2. Attending Many Events OR None at All
During your first year, there are many opportunities to meet new people and learn about university life. Too many events at the start will ruin the fun. You could become sick and get “The Freshers’ Flu”, which is tiredness from lack of sleep and stress from too many events.
3. Waiting Until the Last Minute.
Completing your homework will take time. Procrastinating will impact your grades and generate stress. It is much better to start early and review your assignments than to write your essay the night before the deadline.
4. A New Year Without Budgeting.
It’s not fun keeping track of your expenses, but it’s necessary to enjoy your university years. Initially, having money control would tempt you to waste it on needless items. But as an independent student, you must budget prudently.
5. Hungry Shopping.
Don’t shop hungry. The key is to organize your shopping visits around your budget. It is best to have food prepared and ready to go in your lodging. Hunger makes you acquire unnecessary items because you fear eating them all.
Following these suggestions can help you avoid the frequent rookie blunders.
