Ten pounds heavier. Twenty thousand pounds poorer


University. Ten pounds heavier. Twenty thousand pounds poorer. Yet totally worth it.

I was told:
"You make friends for life at university" How right they were.

Admittedly it wasn't always fun. Apart from having to pull all-nighters from the stupidity of "leaving things to the last minute". The relentless non-stop partying gave me, (on several occasions) sever tonsillitis, constant hangovers and in total five trips to the local hospital. However, even though I put my poor body through complete and utter hell; these so- called life experiences have made me slightly wiser, gave me best friends and a bachelors degree... which some day I hope to use.

Ironically, before I decided to plunge myself into twenty thousand pounds worth of debt just to gain a certificate, I worked in a phone shop earning a lovely 20k a year. Now, after attaining a bachelors degree, I work in a phone shop earning around 12k a year. Ironic? Yes. Sense of achievement? Nope!

However, things do not seem that bad. Currently I'm living in Newquay and get to surf pretty much every day. I'm happy, healthy and am gaining a small nest egg ready for my undecided future... Whatever that may be..
