I would be lying if I said that the final term in my first year of university has been perfect. In among the fun times and excitement of passing exams, there have also been moments of feeling that the course is getting on top of me and that I am going to fall behind. It’s been a rollercoaster ride, but I think that nothing worth having comes easy. I have learnt that being one step ahead and prioritising is vital.
