I am back in ‘university land’ and all moved into my house for next year, very exciting times indeed! I don’t get accommodation on campus because only first years are guaranteed it, and even though I’m technically going into year 1 of medicine, taking a foundation year makes me count as a second year student in the eyes of the accommodation office. I’m not bothered though- my house is a 20 minute walk to campus (10 minutes by bus), has cornershops, a restuarant, pub, and takeaways, as well as a BAKERY down the road, is about 10 minutes from the city centre, and did I mention there is a bakery as well??? So yeah, I’m pleased with it 🙂
I don’t actually start till next Friday, but yesterday was my dad’s only free day to drive me down, and with all the stuff I had to get over here, there was no way I was turning down a lift! Unfortunately Abs, (my mother), wasn’t able to come with us, so I had to unpack everything by myself, and this was no easy task. I’m only now beginning to appreciate just how much work my mum did for me last year, as she unpacked all my stuff and sorted out my room for me. I tried to help but she was having none of it; she literally pushed me out of my own room, and told me to go and make friends. Such a cutie!
All my things have been unpacked now, the internet is finally up and running, and I’m settling in wonderfully. I think I’m gonna like it here… *cue Annie song*
Absolutely, positively BUZZING to start next week; my uni shopping is complete, I’m all registered for the new academic year, and I even have new hair (ooo that rhymes!) Shout out to my hairdresser, Moira, whose weave game is strong, and is one of the few people I trust with my hair. Here she is doing her thing, she is so lovely:
