Our home is a place where we want to feel safe and relaxed. Whether we’ve been at work, out with the children or just got back from a hectic weekend away, there is nothing better than being able to put our feet up and rejuvenate. However, many of us often come home and start thinking about what we can do to make our homes feel more relaxing, or more finished.
Starting university life in an unfamiliar city can force you to meet new people and make new friends. But for many of us, the experience can lead to a little bit of homesickness, and it’s worth staying in touch with the friends you already have back home (or those who’ve gone to different universities). Let’s take a look at how.
Almost by default, you’ll remain linked to your closest friends via your social network of choice – whether it’s Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. While this is an effective means of keeping tabs on everyone you know, it won’t provide you with the same level of interaction that you’re used to. Plus, some of your friends might not be on social media (unthinkable as that might seem to many). You can create a WhatsApp group to keep everyone close together.
Being a uni student in today’s economy is hard. Even if you’ve been lucky enough to have the fees to attend university covered, there’s still the cost of living to consider.
The good news is, there’s lots of ways you can save money as a uni student. If you’re looking to get savvy with your money, below you’ll discover some of the best ways to save money at uni.
Save on transport
If you’re not staying onsite, the cost of travelling to university can be pretty high. Even if you are staying in student halls, you’ll still need to worry about the cost of travelling back home to see family and travelling around the area.
For some people success is very important, for others it is less so. Not everyone wants to be a winner. Many people are happy to be mediocre, ust satisfied to be ordinary. But others want to be the best they can be and that usually involves being a good public speaker.
Public speaking is one activity that sorts the sheep from the goats. Run-of-the-mill speakers are the norm. Our colleagues and friends are surprisingly tolerant of “death-by-PowerPoint” presentations, mumbled banalities and weak jokes. Some wallflowers are so brilliant at what they do that their poor public speaking is tolerated and ignored. But you can’t rely on talent alone, especially if your world is a competitive one.
