The University Flip or Flop

The make or break lifestyle of your typical University student.
Relationships, money, alcohol, friends. Enough to last a lifetime.
However facing the facts coming to University is going to determine whom you are as a person.

I am sure plenty of you have yourself suffered or witnessed the breaking of a relationship whilst in your studies. I sure know I have, suffered, witnessed & caused.
But thats what university is about, learning who you are, getting a degree, and getting the best idea of the life you have to look forward to.

Since coming to Bournemouth I can say I have definitely changed significantly, some say for the better, some do not comment...
I myself see it as an improvement, not having to pay for weekly £25 spray tans and £30 nails is keeping me within my small weekly budget.
But what student has the kind of money to do that anyway?

Come on, you're a student, and a Bournemouth student at that. To all first years, wheres the place to be when the cupboards are dry with only one can of 14p spaghetti as company, Asda?
I have £25 to spend a week in here, my first week down I walked in grabbed a trolley & stocked up £140 worth of alcohol and food, luckily this was covered by 'bank of dad'. Seriously though, where does the money go, the vodka? The wine? Or the stash of Birds Eye potato waffles in the freezer?
On a final note, I can safely say the bullet points above represent the majority of students I have met, and if you don't suffer the crunch of weekly budgets, its Lava tonight, drinks on you!
