20 Things You’ll Understand If You Moved From The Countryside To The City For Uni

Going to university usually means travelling far away from your home, but for those of us who moved from the countryside it feels like you are travelling to another planet.

1. The shock when you discover that buses aren’t mythical creatures that only arrive on one sacred corner of your town.

2. And that they actually do show up every 10 – 15 minutes.

“So… wait. I don’t need to fit my whole day around the bus schedule?”

3. How funny it is to watch people freak out because said bus is running a few minutes late.

Seriously? Try waiting an hour for one that might never turn up.

4. The joy of having access to shops that are actually open when you need them to be.

6. Feeling utterly overwhelmed by the amount of things you could do in a day.

Shop? Cinema? Mini Golf? Theatre? Lazer Quest? THE LIST GOES ON!

10. And then being somewhat freaked out by the sheer volume of them when you return home.

11. Going completely off the grid from your uni friends when you’re at home because you have no signal or WiFi.

12. Loving being able to show off your cool city life to your home friends when they visit.

13. But hating not being able to rely on the country echo to find them if they get lost.

At home, if you lose someone you can simply ask someone else if they’ve seen them and they’ll know exactly who you mean because everyone knows everyone. In the city…not so much.

14. Being absolutely astounded by the fact that you can walk to most places.

“I don’t have to drive to the next town to do my weekly shop? Really?”

17. And there’s a good chance your accent is a bit of a novelty at times.

Oh, you and your country bumpkin ways.

19. Worrying that it’s going to be impossible to ever move back to the countryside now you’ve tasted city life.
