Nice weekend in Hull

❀赫尔周末愉快❀


作为一名国际学生,我想分享一下我如何在赫尔度过一个平凡而美好的周末。

经过一周的学习,周末通常是放松身心的好时机。有些人会选择去酒吧,有些人会安静地呆在宿舍里,而我的周末是这样的:

●星期六早上

我喜欢早上在学校里跑来跑去,这不仅可以帮助我更加熟悉学校,而且可以使我整日精力充沛。

早餐

跑步后,我喜欢在宿舍或小餐厅里享用美味的英式早餐。要体验不同的文化。与当地人的一些闲聊不仅可以帮助我更好地适应英语,还可以帮助我练习口语。

●下午☼

下午,我喜欢在市中心闲逛,在繁忙的街道上玩耍。

●夜☽

晚上,我想看电影或在宿舍里做一些折纸。

●周日上午

在周日的早晨,我喜欢去一些博物馆或展览馆。欣赏西方文化的魅力,了解东西方文化的差异,以帮助我在这个地方更好地生活和学习,开阔我的视野。

●周日下午

下午,我通常和室友一起去室内攀岩。

●周日晚上

在傍晚的太阳下散散步,然后平静下来,迎接新的一周学习。

Social Anxiety: My University Story

 

Having dealt with social anxiety throughout my teenage years, the idea of moving away from my family, childhood friends and general familiarity was something I dreaded but before going any further it is imperative to gain an understanding of what social anxiety actually means. The term refers to the long-lasting over-whelming fear of social situations. For me I had struggled with everyday activities such as meeting strangers, starting conversations and doing things in front of other people as I felt like I would be judged. When fresher’s week came around, I was so terrified that I had to get my big brother to stay the first night, but I quickly realised that there was nothing to fear as individuals who may not have suffered from social anxiety shared to the same fears and worries that I did, especially as the percentage of students seeking counselling increased from 9.4% to 10.2%.

Fast forwarding 4 years, I can confidently say I’m not the same person I was and that is largely down to both the people I have met during my time at the University of Hull but also the systems in place to guide students through the transition from secondary school to university life. The campus support, skills team and societies actively create a dialog and environment that welcomes people who share the same worries that I had, ensuring everyone is aware that social anxiety and mental health is not a taboo topic, but something that everyone at some point in their life have struggles with.

My favorite park

A Quiet Park

This is a good place where I often go alone to relax.

Because of that:

  • Very few people
  • Big enough to take a walk
  • There is beautiful scenery
  • Public play facilities are comprehensive
  • Close to school

So just let me show you what is this park looks like in my eyes.

Cozy lakeside

The blue lake and the quiet swans will really give you a sense of relaxation.

The water bridge

Fallen leaves and stagnant water with a lonely bridge.

Path

I love the feeling of the sunshine spilling on the road.

The love tree

I don’t know who it is, but it must be very romantic.

Lonely house

I am a fashionable little house.

Skatepark

The garbage can said I will always be with you.

When you are bored or unhappy, it will be a good place to relax yourself.

In the end, please enjoy a short video I made.

I hope you like this park, too.

Romanian Student at University of Hull

“Welcome to the University of Hull” – when I heard this I was so excited to start my next chapter in my life.

I moved from Romania in Sept 2019 in order to start my master at the University of Hull. I left Romania with only 200 pounds risking everything that I left home.

There are a few things to know before you start your  student life abroad…of course, I did not know them:

  1. In UK is always raining and it`s cold….well in Romania is not really raining so much, so until you get used to it is not really funny.
  2. The first weeks are hard because you need to start to make new friends, go out, basically start a new life again, and you will miss so much your best friends and family.
  3. In order to meet new people, the best option beside goes to Uni was to get a job and yes definitely that was the best choice I made since I am here and I feel really appreciate and I started to at work relaxed, with pleasure.

4. Pizza is better here than back home

These are just a few things that I`ve learned since I am here but after  4 months I can tell that I found myself here and I have my independent life, where I found a job and I created a routine and feel that I finally have a purpose. The first 2 weeks were very hard until I got used to the British accent or preparing my own food.

Reasons To Join A Sport Society At Uni

As enthusiastic as the idea of practicing a sport at university can be, it could also be as terrifying, due to the fear of reliving the horrible experience of sport classes in school.
