There are many things 3rd year me would have loved to have told 1st year me- Don’t take things so seriously. Are you sure you’re going to skip putting on sunblock today? You should really throw those out instead of trying to cook it– and while I have developed a freckle or two with my oversight, there are some things I would like to have known better when I first started my Marine Science degree. My friend Kessia (who has graduated and was a JCU blogger) and I came up with a few points we thought we might share with any freshers keen to do things better than we did! While some points may be degree-specific, others are general and based on common sense (which you might question we had a lack of).
