Applying to Uni was a stressful time. I was always a good/ decent student, but being put against other good (and better) students from other schools all over the country left me slightly self-conscious.

When I got rejected, I was devastated. Really for the first time in my life I was told I was not good enough. At that time, it felt like my whole future went down the drain.

On a whim, I applied to a different school and got in! Maybe there was hope for me after-all?! In retrospect, that “failure” shaped my current life. Of course, I do not know what would have happened had I gotten in to my initially chosen Uni, but because I am a firm believer in “everything happens for a reason”, I am glad that I did not get in.

Uni A was located in my city. Uni B was not. That prepared me for an adult life. I would not have learned how to fend for myself had I lived at home during those Uni days. Who knows, maybe I would STILL live there. I learned so many life skills that I would have missed out on otherwise. Because of living on my own, I got to experience the fun parts, too. I got to meet some great people. Some who are still in my life to this day.

Sometimes bad things are good things in disguise.

  1. It’s crazy to think that you have put that much effort in getting to a University.
    Here in Holland they are practically begging people to go to their Uni!

    Lot of youngsters become independent once they start their Uni. It’s the perfect opportunity.
    Those who choose to stay at home, might not leave their parent’s nest very soon.

    I was one that stayed at home during Uni. It’s a little over an hour commute, but I could save some money and it was just convenient.
    I got used to it, but also panicked because I didn’t think I would ever make a big step like that.
    Then somehow I got that internship in Denmark and started becoming independent.

    I agree. During the first phase of living on your own s when you learn the most about life and about yourself.

    I will have to think about my story!

    1. It’s totally true about saving money. But back then, I did not care, because there was no money that was mine. I’m much wiser now that I earn my own.

      Can’t wait to see what you think of!


  2. Congrats on your awards! That uni experience of living away from home is one I wonder if I could have experienced but missed out on. I never did consider applying to further away schools at the time I pursued higher education.

    1. It was never on my mind until I was pushed into a corner. I definitely recommend it to those who weigh their options. But it’s not for everyone. I realize that.
      It all happens for a reason. It probably wasn’t your time. Have you had the chance to experience the “adulting” since?

      1. Depends on what you mean by adulting, lol. One adulting thing I have strictly avoided is credit cards because I don’t like having bills to pay off when I could just pay in cash and get it over with. Right now I do have something that may potentially help me up my adulting game in the future, but it’s not 100% confirmed yet so I will probably share more about it on my blog if it pans out.

        1. I’d avoid credit cards, too, but in the US, you have to use it to build credit, which is needed to rent an apartment, buy a car, get a cell phone service, etc. But I still use it rather rarely.
          By adulting I meant shopping, cooking, doing laundry, paying bills all on your own.
          Good luck!

          1. Aw, darn it. :/ I didn’t know I had to build credit to access that stuff… I think I can handle some adulting stuff, but not all of it. Cooking on my own… I can only do it on a very basic level lol. Laundry is no sweat for me because I grew up putting clothes in the load, hanging them to dry, and folding them. I hardly ever use the clothing iron for anything though. Shopping… I’d say I could in my own neighborhood where I know where to look for cheaper prices on certain things. But it’s hard to have chances where I’m doing all this stuff completely 100% on my own since I still live with family.
