Casually drowning in prospectuses.

Posted on

1. Falling in love with every uni once you've read their prospectus:

Especially the ones that look like Hogwarts.

2. And realising there are way more courses out there than the ones your teachers told you about:

"Yacht Operations" sounds pretty sweet tbh.

4. You start writing your personal statement and realise you have no idea how to begin:

Brb, just drowning in "how to write a personal statement" articles.

7. And dying a little inside when you're told to cut down your paragraph on DofE to a sentence:

BuzzFeed Violet / Via

You're pretty damn sure every uni will accept you once they hear you set up the trangia all by yourself.

12. And you want to give up trying to human:

Parents: Your room is a mess. Me: You should see my life.

Sixteen ain't so sweet sometimes.

13. But luckily, your friends are there to help you get your grades:

Free periods become your saving grace.

15. And constantly daydreaming about uni to keep you motivated:

I'm dead excited to go to uni because my uni looks like hogwarts

You're totally going to become the star of an a capella group at uni, à la Pitch Perfect. Totally.

18. But hey, at least you have the finer things in life there to distract you:

It's great practice for uni.

Applying for uni is a pretty weird and crazy time. Beat your uni application indecisiveness with a visit to a UCLan open day, and make (one) part of the process just that little bit easier.
