It feels like the last year has just flown by. A year ago, I finally packed up my stuff and moved out of home to be closer to uni. Overall, this experience has been great and I would encourage people to consider their options if traveling for study is an issue.
My Mum was very supportive and gave me a care-package of stuff that I am still using today. She also gave me a cute little placard that said, “Close at Heart” even though I was just moving an hour down the highway for university.
