Yesterday wasn’t very eventful so I decided to just hold off until today to do a collaborative round-up of yesterday & today. So I’ll quickly give you the gist of what I got up to yesterday then move on to the exciting stuff that occurred today!
Yesterday consisted off a very chilled out day with Mum & Dad. It was lovely but I didn’t have all that much to write about really. It was just quality time spent with my wonderful parents that one can only fully appreciate in that moment. I popped up the town centre yesterday though to get my eyebrows & upper lip threaded! I must be insane putting myself through that because they really aren’t that visible – just vellus hair that everyone has – I’m just paranoid about those kind of things and put myself through the brutality of threading to prevent worrying about it.
Today was a glorious day. I had an applicant day for Stirling University. I’ve received two offers from this University for completely different courses so my options are really open. I went to another applicant day for Strathclyde University last week (where I have also received an offer for). I think attending these applicant days is beneficial because it definitely gives you a feel for the place where you could potentially be studying for the next few years!
The weather was astounding today: It was probably one of the warmest days Scotland has seen all year! It was a privilege to walk around such beautiful grounds on such a delightful day. I didn’t even have to take a jacket with me (which is a total rarity here)!
The campus was remarkable.
As soon as we arrived there was people there to guide us to where we needed to be. Everywhere we went throughout the whole campus, the current students couldn’t have been more helpful! Everyone was so informative, attentive & welcoming. The applicant day was evidently planned out and organised efficiently and was definitely a whole other kettle of fish from the other applicant day I had attended previously. There was lots of stalls, freebies, campus tours, talks, presentations etc. There was loads to do! With it being such an extraordinary day outside, we took advantage of this by walking around the grounds, and I managed to do over 10,000+ steps today and smash my step target goal! I also had the opportunity to meet a few lecturers on the courses I had received offers for which was propitious and educational for me.
I felt so comfortable at Stirling University and could definitely see myself studying there but it’s just the commuting that could perhaps be a bit of a problem! However, I still haven’t made up my mind yet. It’s good to keep your options open. I have the opportunity to study English, Journalism, Creative Writing and Psychology this year so it’s a lot to consider! I really need to weigh up my options and decide what way I want to go!
After a successful day at Stirling University; my cousin and I done a spot of shopping in Stirling. Why not take advantage of such a beautiful day in a stunning city? I popped into LUSH and treated myself to a few bits & bobs. I also picked up a lovely denim skirt, some new cosmetics & some exciting face masks whilst I was out and about on my travels!
I’ve had a wonderful day and I’m feeling good. I’m so glad I went to the applicant day. Have you ever been to one? Or an open day? Did you find it beneficial? I love hearing from you guys!
