“You have to leave things that you love” Kristen Wiig, Bridesmaids, Saturday Night Live
The Rabbit Film Section is a student run Blog, written by students, for students, but the beauty of a blog is its universality, so literally anyone can be made aware of the University of Essex.
Everyone, at some point of their life has to leave something they love, someone they love in order to progress, to grow as humans.
In a sense, we change just like any character in any Film, we have our own ‘character arc’, but, unlike Films, it is not written down on paper, in black and white, instead, we have to figure it ourselves.
Which is rather wonderful, first year is going to be tough because everything is new, unknown. But that doesn’t necessarily have to be a bad thing, embrace it, embrace the madness because those three (or four) years will fly by.
First year is the opportunity to make good friends, have fun and learn in the subject which you love. Join societies, don’t be afraid to talk to people, because Freshers Week is the only time of the year where you can approach someone and it not be odd.
Independent Film is the theme of the issue which is out during Freshers Week, which seems rather appropriate because you will be independent and please do embrace it.
