I have now officially finished my first year at University! It seems weird to be finished so soon, like I haven’t really spent that much time here. But it has been an amazing year, and I have the best support from my family. They always go out of their way to be extra amazing, and I wouldn’t have been able to do this year without them.
As I was finishing printing off my last few assignments, I was interrupted by my boyfriend, my sister, and her boyfriend, who had travelled up that morning to surprise me! It was such a shock and was so lovely to see them all, as I hadn’t been home in months. They had brought home to me. So we spent the day out in Southampton, browsing round the shops and catching up. But after they had surprised me I had to try to get my own back.
My mum had been in on the whole surprise and they had planned it for weeks before, so I decided to try to get her back. We travelled back home that night and the next morning I surprised my mum. I wasn’t supposed to be back until next week but I had finished all of my assignments which meant that I could spend some time at home.
I also managed to surprise my auntie and my best friend, it was so nice to spend some time with them again. I have had a lovely couple of days back home, and after work this weekend I will be back home again for a couple of weeks.
This year has been incredible. I have had the best time and met the most amazing people. But I am ready for some time at home and am so thankful that I have so much loving family who go to great lengths to surprise me and make me feel so loved.
