First night of freshers and my uni experience in general
I am up at 4am which I am not sure is a good sign but I am exhilaratingly happy. Despite thinking I would not make any friends I have made loads.
I arrived in London at around 11am, checked into my halls and went into my room. It took about three trips to get all my stuff into my room and then a further two hours to get everything unpacked and sorted out but all in all it was a pretty pain free process and so enjoyable making my little room my own,
After doing this, me and my parents went for a shop (essentials such as toilet paper and milk were needed) and also for some much needed lunch (there’s a weekly market near me where they sell amazing food from pretty much every part of the world, suiting pretty much every need - I had Korean dumplings, amazing).
I brought back my essentials (from Waitrose, no shame) and then by this point I really wanted to find people and start socialing so I said goodbye to my parents and let them go wander in London.
I wasn’t quite sure how to go about finding people, everyone always says just go and knock on the doors of other rooms but my corridor was so quiet (and smelt of weed) that I couldn’t really do that. I shoved some paper under my door, played some music whilst I put photos on my notcie board but this was not effective as no one walked past. After a few tense minutes where I genuinely thought I would never find any friends ever, I went to make a coffee and two of my neighbours found me and we went exploring
We soon saw a group of people heading to the basement and I suggested we followed suit (I already knew this was where the common room etc was) and the rest was perfect.
I met a group of people from floor four and we all started talking. We grouped around the sofas in the common room and gradually more and more people began to join and I am so happy. I have met a group of fabulous people, just like I dreamed I would, and people so similar to my own interests. There’s been so many I know over the following weeks I am only going to get closer to some of them and find out who I really am (cheesy i know fuck off whatever)
I have never been so excited about a time in my life and I’ve never been so happy in who I am,
I miss Adam but all I keep thinking is how much I want him to come up here and experience this with me.
After four hours or so talking in the common room, we all decided to regroup. I showered and changed and then went upstairs to floor four’s kitchen and drank with those people for a bit. Then we went for a little pub crawl. We returned at around 11pm - so early but we were all pretty shattered.
A few of us have tickets for Koko tomorrow night (or tonight if we’re being literal seeing as I am writing this at 4am) I am excited for some dancing and also for the fact that I have nothing to do tomorrow but eat sleep and recover.
Life is so fucknig good

Your needs, your thoughts and feelings…

Dinner last night saying goodbye to Adz 👎😥😥😥 #dinner #food #yum (at The Anchor, Hullbridge)
I never thought my happiness would depend on another person and now that it does, even though I’m really sad about leaving and saying goodbye to Adam was really really hard I’m, in a weird way, so happy that I’ve finally found someone who means this much to me.
Not only that but he looks after me, he cares about me and he is so fucking good to me.
I feel lucky, blessed even, to have something it’s so hard to leave.
Over the past few months I have been the happiest I’ve ever been in my life and that is no exaggeration.
Even in the past when I have been happy, there has always been something plaguing it - my weight issues, school work, me fucking up.
At this exact moment in time, sure I’m pretty sad. I nearly cried. But ultimately I am so happy, lucky and excited about my life.
I’m going to uni, going to meet loads of amazing new people, study literature and read - and then when I come home for the holidays I have an incredible boyfriend and family to have fun with.
What could be more perfect??
The view from our fucking room in Argentina/Brazil (i can’t remember soz) overlooking the Iguaçu falls like what
