Two weeks to go, deep breaths will see me through.

Two weeks today I'll be spending my second night in Portsmouth, I'll be settling into my halls with my new 'family'. My pots and pans will still be squeaky clean, perhaps only being used once whilst my room will be equally as squeaky (my mum's a clean freak too!)....and thinking about all of this is rather daunting, perhaps even a little bit terrifying.

I've done the work, I've agonised over deadlines; in the most part shed blood, sweat and tears over revision and thought 'Oh I give up' but I didn't and now all that's done and it's time to have the time of my life. I count myself so bloody lucky to have the family and friends I have, as well as people like you guys who I haven't even met but you're always there to cheer me on and give good advice. You've all seen the world for what it is and have for many years dealt with it's good it's bad and it's ugly - that's something I've got to learn, and it's going to be hard.

But I mean, my life is CHANGING, not altering but changing. Of course my family and friends are always going to be with me, we've formed a pact that we won't forget each other (drunken in the pub I admit but we're sticking to it with our friendship bracelets!) but I'm slowly realising how Jenny Powell is going on a new adventure, with new people and a new routine. I've yearned for this for years and years, even before GCSE but back then I wanted to go to Bath and study Journalism....shows you don't know what you really want until you get there - people were right after all!

Thank you all for everything you've said, I'm fond of you all even though I don't personally know the people behind the support, advice, and fab posts. I mean, my post is a mish mash of things but ultimately, these next two weeks are going to be so important that I've got to make the most of it, and I plan to. Any advice on stress busting would be much appreciated!! JP.xx

See each new thing as a life experience whether good or bad! Just reflect on it all and keep a journal-Great fun to look back on!

Sitting by the ocean is good advice from MamaP. If you really need to unwind, junp on a ferry to the Isle Of Wight. You'll be back in 1956 with Elvis on the radio and not a care in the world. Good Luck Jenny.

I like the idea of the pact between you and your friends. It may happen that you lose a couple of them along the way, as you say your lives are changing, theirs as well as yours, so that happens, but for each one you lose you'll probably pick up another two or three as you go. Like you say new adventures, new routines and new friends. Good luck, go for it whatever it is and you've got my number.

Every morning that you wake up is the 'first day of the rest of you life'. Make each one count as i'm sure you will. Fulfill your potential, only when one is older realization sets and it leaves a few regrets when suddenly that time has gone. Switch off the mind sometimes and take in the natural beauty that surrounds us. I always sit by the sea when I feel things need sorting in my brain. The stress and rat race will always be waiting. A little stress is not always bad, anxiety is not so good. "Good Luck Jenny". You will always have lots of support from Noddlers and a warm welcome when you visit this part of the country.
