So I've been at Uni for 2 weeks now although it feels a hell of a lot longer, this may be due in part to all my amazing housemates. There are 7 of them and I never thought that in only 13 days we'd be so close.
The fact that I haven't been homesick after being away for this long is a new experience, but I have to admit to liking it. As much as I'd love to see my parents again my conscience doesn't want to let me, I feel like I can't vacate the house on campus whilst my house mates who I still have so much more to learn about stay.
Reminising about the day I moved in I remember seeing my room and being very pleasantly surprised by the size, compared to my old room it's practically palacial. Also the first time i saw the people I would be living with for at least a year, Abbey first, who I met on facebook pre-moving in I was very excited to meet her face to face, undoubtedly I was aprehensive but my fears soon disspated as I realised what an exceptional person she was, as was everyone else who I met. She is a little dappy and a scatter brain but it makes her that much more indearing.
The next was Anna who greeted me with a massive smile and a hug so I obviously immediatley approved! She laughs a lot and loves her music, which is all good with me as hearing new music always makes life better! Her boyfriend is a very lucky man indeed as she is not only gorgeous but funny and very sweet.
Then there's Lydia, how do I describe her? ... the horny one, she apparently needs her boyfriend to come and see her very soon! But really she's a very amusing and lovable girl that everyone would enjoy spending time with. And yes she did embarrass herself by showing her bra to the kitchen of sutdents that dwell opposite, I can't imagine I'd be the only one to have enjoyed this. Again her boyfriend should be extremely pleased with himself as his girlfriend is hilarious and a very sexy dancer!!
Next Sean who we met in the stone courtyard between the 5 houses that make up our home Langton. The best description of him would have to be an adorable nerd! He enjoys his wii games, reading and superheroes in general, but he could make anyone smile just by walking into a room I guess he's just a pretty incredible soul.
Fliss is loud and proud, and so are we to know her, she has the most fantastic laugh and could easily light up an entire town with her warm nature. I can't imagine a more conscientious and affectionate girl.
Matt was the last one I had the good fortune to talk to and although quiet he has a fabulous sense of humour once you get to know him and the sweetest smirk you could imagine. Getting closer to him and getting to know his personality has shown, like most of the new people I have met, he is a very special, gracious and lovable person and defintely a friend worth having.
Of course there will always be those that you feel a close bond with, Sophie who I may not have met before venturing here, I feel especially attached to as she is just all round lovely and we have so much in common I really hope that with her and the entirity of my new home I am friends for a long time to come. I consider myself to have great fortune, having had the chance to meet all these people.
For the first week we went out a couple of times drinking copious amounts and I did some rather embarrassing dancing it must be said. I felt rather sorry for one of my housemates in particular, Matt who I decided in my intoxicated state to use as a pole whilst on the dance floor.
This week I started lectures, if you can call them that! They mainly consisted of reading through handbooks and health and safety talks, so basically talks on common sense. Despite that, one afternoon I played in mud in the woods for 3 hours taking samples. Oh the joys of environmental science.
I have ordered my books for my course which amounted to a rather ample cost. I feel like a fully fledged nerd when I think about my books because I get rather excited, and I am relishing the thought of learning again!!
Well here's to next week and the coming lectures of interest ... hopefully!
