Hi everyone! My name is Zoe and I'm 21 and currently studying at university! I've had a tough time with mental health especially since the pandemic started. Hoping that I'll feel less lonely by joining here :)

    @lovemimoon I'm currently in my second year (now going onto my third and final year). What are you studying (if it's okay to ask)?

    Heey! I'm in second year as well!
    I'm studying Illustration but I'm planning to put my uni year on pause to focus on my mental health. What about you? What are you studying??
  • zoezoe West midlandsPosts: 29 Boards Initiate
    @lovemimoon I'm studying chemistry at the moment (and might be hating it) oops-- I've recently deferred my summer exams to August because my mental health was just not doing great... This pandemic has just made everything 10 times harder o_o

    I'm sorry to hear your mental health has taken a toll... I hope things get easier for you and that taking a break from uni gives you a well deserved break from things!

    shouldn't have laughed as hard, oops

    How are you doing, mental health wise? If you don't mind me asking.

    @lovemimoon Hmmmm recently I've been doing okay thank you! I think the nice weather has really been helping, and it's not as daunting to go out into public spaces anymore so that's helped lift my mood a lot. How have you been?

    Hi @zoe
    I've been feeling a little rough lately. My mood has been shifting so much, I'm surprised I'm still here. I'm glad to see that your mood has been lifted! <3

    There's a general chat if you want to say hi to everyone - https://community.themix.org.uk/discussion/3596830/general-chit-chat-op-greentea#latest

    @lovemimoon I'm sorry to hear that you've been feeling rough :< I hope that you aren't too harsh on yourself during this tough period. It's okay to not be productive, it's okay to be sad, emotional, angry, upset. Your feelings are valid, and it's okay to have bad days <3

    @zaynab_5 Hello! Thank you for your kind welcome <3

    Hmm uni life is very difficult due to the pandemic, and online learning has been a struggle for me personally since I'm more used to learning things in person. Good luck w/ uni tho and I hope you friends/course mates with common interests!

    I really regret not joining any societies in my first year, so definitely at least give a few a go to see if you like any of them! It'll help you make friends too ^-^
