Hi there! As you can probably tell from the title, this post is about uni! You may or may not know, but I started university on the 26th September, and moved into halls. This is my personal experience of Freshers’ Week and the whole moving away from home process.

Moving into halls was an incredibly scary experience for me. Prior to moving in, I was extremely scared and worried about how it would be, but most importantly how much I would miss home.. even though it IS only an hour away… it was very difficult. I went home on Tuesday evening and came back on Thursday, and then went home on Friday and came back on Sunday… so technically I didn’t ‘really’ move out but still, it’s a big step for me.

The next couple of weeks when actual lessons start would make it difficult for me to visit home so often… so I will let you know of how homesick I get in the coming weeks.. Hopefully I will get used to it because I’m finding it pretty difficult! Thankfully though, I’ve moved in and settled in pretty well… My flatmates are all really nice so that helps a great deal. XD

Soooooo, freshman orientation, most widely known as FRESHERS’ WEEK was last week and will continue throughout this week. I’ve heard countless times that freshers’ week is supposedly the best week of your life. In my opinion, if that’s the case, then you’ve had a pretty sad life. YES, it’s incredibly fun!! But it’s not the best week I’ve ever had. XD Most everything does, unfortunately, run around discos, partying, clubbing and all that other stuff Muslims aren’t supposed to be involved in, which really sucks but it meant that I could actually find friends who were like myself and didn’t go either!

During the day there’d be a few introductory lectures and then everyone would go back to halls or commute home. From around 8pm to early morning is when the partying etc would start. Basically there’s nothing left for me to do and I’ve just had an hour in the dissection room which was pretty scary! Sooo yeah, I’m gonna continue being bored and wait for tomorrow’s lectures to start. ZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzz……. Hopefully, my next post will be when lectures start and I’ll actually have something awesome to write. ^^ Ooh, and I go home tomorrow! I miss my family ever so much. :’(
