One week later!

Right then. It's been a few hours past the seven day mark and I'm still alive, so I must be doing something right. Please excuse the rubbish photos. It's been a really odd week, I'll be totally honest. It doesn't feel as though I've moved out. It feels more like a holiday and I've just brought all my things with me. I don't exactly feel homesick, and I haven't cried. (Although mum did, and on Friday my tutor asked me if she was okay now, bless him!) The moving in process was relatively easy actually, I was expecting absolute chaos, but it can't have taken any more than three hours from leaving home to emptying both cars into my room. Which, by the way is actually quite nice. Most of my things got unpacked on Sunday evening, and then the rest I did through Monday and Tuesday and now I'm all set up in my home for the remaining 39 weeks that I'm allowed to stay here. Before I forget to mention, I will say that my flat mates are pretty cool.

Today is the day.

Hello everyone! It's likely that by the time most of you read this, I'll either be on the way to my new home, or will have moved in already. And that, above everything is pretty exciting. With terrifying and nerve racking coming in a close second and third. I have lived in the same home for my entire life, much like most, if not all of my friends, I honestly don't know. It's not exactly a hot topic when engaging in conversation. However, today is the day that all of that changes. Me, and about 900 other people are leaving our current homes, to go live all on the same street. Which is kind of weird if you think about it, but at the same time, it's really cool. No doubt by the time this post is published I'll have cried at least once and my mum several times, I can guarantee you that much. It's strange. Just sitting here now, realising that today will be the day that I move away from everything and almost everyone that I've ever known is really an usual co

I'm not dead!

Hello everybody! Fear not, I'm still here. I've just been lurking for a week or so now, that's all. It's not like there is any specific reason I've not posted for a while. Between packing and preparing for university and keeping relaxed I've really not had much to talk about. I move on Sunday. Which, is both scary and exciting. Whilst I don't feel particularly scared or nervous or worried, I know for a fact that I am. No doubt it will all come bubbling up on Sunday morning, which, if it does I hope I'm prepared for it. I'll have the whole day to recover however, since I can't actually move into my 'apartment' *cough*flat*cough* until 3 o'clock. And even then it's likely it'll be after that since the whole moving in process seems rather complicated. I'm not even kidding. We have to drive to 'car park A', and wait there until someone tells us we can drive to the university, then to my flat, and then we have to be go

Life update.

So it's been a while. I'm sorry! I thought, what with just two weeks until I move out, that a short update on my life would be a fitting post for now. What's new then? Well. I have glasses now. This has been a long time coming. And for the past year or so, I've sat back as my eyesight slowly deteriorated. Conveniently, I have been due an eye test. So I went. And it's been confirmed I'm short sighted. So attached below you'll find a horrendous picture of my in my glasses. Mock away. To be quite honest. I've been wearing them that much now that I'm used to them and sometimes feel weird when I don't have them on. I'm convinced I have a wonky face. What else. Hmm. Ooh! I finally got my bank account sorted. I'm now with Santander. Which is pretty cool. I get a free railcard too, which is great. Just waiting for that to arrive now. I'm pretty much all packed and ready to move out now. WHICH IS IN TWO WEEKS BY THE WAY. I'm pretty flippin
