I am currently in a dilemma about where I want to go to uni in September. At the moment it's between Sheffield and London, both to study Journalism. Sheffield is a very good course but one of the London universities includes more multimedia in the course which is the kind of thing I'm more interested in. I know, this is very boring; I'm sorry!!
I was living in London for a week last Summer and it wasn't that enjoyable. I didn't really like the whole commute by tubes and how busy EVERY street was. But then again, I was on my own so that might have affected my experience? If it wasn't Sheffield then it was always going to be between another city and London, especially because I want to go into Journalism; it's where all the best job opportunities are. It is just so far away from Liverpool that I don't know if I could settle in and not be homesick every other minute. It goes without saying that I've never lived away from home because I'm only 18 but I've never even had a job besides helping out in our chippy.
Good for my independence (apparently)
So much to see and do
Entry requirements for one of the London choices is lower than Sheffield
So far away from home
Expensive living costs
So busy and so many people
I don't know anyone
I am scared of terrorism and crime
They're the rational reasons anyway. The crazy nut inside me is saying:
George Craig lives there. Unfortunately, this isn't a joke in the slightest :( . He looks like he has SO much fun with his friends and he keeps tweeting things like #ilovelondon and every time I listen to One Night Only it reminds me of London because that's all I listened to when I was down there!
What it all comes down to really!I don't know what to doooo. I don't want to go to Sheffield and a few months in, regret not going to London and I don't want to end up hating London and having to live there for three years.
