8. LIFE: Letting Liverpool Go

So on my way to Liverpool I was beyond exciting. Liverpool feels like home, I know it like the back of my hand (most of the time!) and frankly, I still absolutely love it. This is coupled by the fact that most of my best friends still live there and I just knew I was going to have a great weekend. However, as I travel home from this fab weekend, I've been reflecting on my time here and how I just can't let go.



Uni seemed to flash before my eyes. Literally. It feels like it was only yesterday I was arriving at my halls with too much stuff and completely outside of comfort zone. Where did the time go? Don't get me wrong, uni was never easy, there was tear and laughs, love lust and hate (mainly towards my computer), to be honest, uni encompassed every emotion under the sun. I can't even count how many times I burst into tears in the library, particularly when my computer lost ALL my work. But I got there, I got my degree, which don't get me wrong, I am very proud of, but I also got so much more.



Life is what you make it, I really believe that and I think that I grasped every opportunity I could. I loved every minute (particularly third year) and I think that is why I can't let go. I can't let go of the spontaneous nights out, having zero responsibility, having my friends on the door step and mainly just doing what I want. However, apart from my degree, one thing I can proudly walk away with is my amazing group of friends, who kept me sane and picked me up when I was down. I am so blessed.




And let's be honest, this was all magnified by the fact that I spent three years of my life in the fantastic city of Liverpool. I miss being in the centre of it all and even though I love London, it is so vast, it's hard to find your way sometimes.

But now it's time for a new chapter in my life. Liverpool will always have a place in my heart and it really is not the end. To any freshers that are starting uni in Liverpool or anywhere else, treasure your time, you will have the time of your life.

  3. I went to Edge Hill uni so was around Liverpool quite a bit, and also was sad to leave it. It'll always be somewhere I love, and want to return one day, but for now we can start a new chapter :) xx
