if you haven't read my last university post i wrote, you can find it here if you're interested! before i start i'd like to thank you for all of the lovely comments i received on both blogger and tumblr, i appreciate every one of them! a few weeks after posting the original post, i decided that i wanted to leave university. i thought about it properly for a long time before doing anything final, but in the end i knew that i definitely wanted to leave. i knew things wouldn't get better for me, even if i had made friends and felt better about myself. i don't think i would have enjoyed my course even if everything else was ok. being in london and at university made me feel like i had no time for myself. so i felt like i needed to take some time off from things and better my mental and physical health, as these things are a lot more important to me instead of doing a degree that i don't enjoy!
it's been about a week since e-mailing the university my withdrawal form and i can happily say that i don't regret it. i've already applied to more universities and will hopefully be studying photography either this september or next (depending on whether i feel better and ready!). this time i applied to universities mostly around nottinghamshire so i won't be too far away from home! i still have a way to go until i feel like myself again but i am a lot happier (and i get to blog a lot more!)
thank you for reading! lots of love x
