Well I think that I have mentioned before about how 2 of my friends that I lived with last year have decided to just commute to university next year. So me and my other friend had to try and find 2 other people to live with us. We managed to find 1 other so now our landlord has found someone else. So basically we are going to be living with someone that we don’t know. Again!!
I was really curious as to who the new person is going to be so I asked my landlord if she could tell us because we had a bad feeling that it was going to be a boy! But luckily it’s a girl.
I think that I found her on Facebook so I dropped her a message and added her as a friend. I hope she replies etc. so that I can get to know her a bit before we all move in.
I’m a bit awkward when it comes to meeting people for the very first time because I’m pretty rubbish at making decent conversations so hopefully we can get chatting before we meet in person!
One of the main points about university is meeting new people anyway so looking forward to it!
So it’s Thursday, probably my worst day of the week. I am in uni 9am – 5pm :'( It makes me upset! Ha, on the upside though I have a 2 hour break in the middle to chill out and do work.
I am currently sat in The Hub with my friend and housemate Jenny. We had to be hawk eyed to grab a seat, it gets really busy in here around this time, luckily though we have managed to grab a couch!
So work that I am planning on doing, I have just taken out 3 books from the library on animation. (I do a module dedicated to animation) One book is on Genre & Authorship, another on Anime and another about Understanding Animation. These are in preperation for my exam that is in 3 weeks and also an essay that I have to write for December. I’m thinking I am going to write my essay on Anime and Disney cartoons. Which should be fun, in theory.
Thursday is an even busier day for me too as I usually have to rush back to my student house (a 20 minute walk away) grab all my clothes and dash to try and get the ten to six train to Preston (the train station is a 10 minute walk from my house). I tend to go home (Blackpool) on the weekends or to see my boyfriend (he lives in Preston and goes to UCLAN) so I manage to experience 2 different sides to uni life. I have to say Ormskirk is a much more pleasant environment but there are up and downsides to both which I will discuss throughout this blog.
Thanks for reading, come back soon 😀
