and onto chapter two


These are (in order) my 'leaving for university in the morning' emotions.
There are lots of things that I'm going to be really sorry to leave behind but after my spell of melancholy yesterday, some pep talks from friends and an I Ching reading from my Granny over lunch (!) I've rediscovered that feeling of excitement and anticipation about what lies ahead.

And you know what lies ahead don't you? At least a week of erratic and meagre blogging. I apologise in advance, for real, I wish I could get into the swing of things with some regular blogging again but I unless I want to encourage names like 'laptop friend' from my prospective flatmates I ought to operate a strict door wedged open, laptop lid closed policy. I know the next fortnight is a period of transition for lots of other people off to University so best of luck if you too are flying the nest!

Peace out Bristol, I'm going to miss you.

Chapter two is really, really good (yet a lot of hard work waits you so be prepared) but overall these are the "good years", so enjoy them!
Chapter three is really nice too though :)
Good luck with everything!

Good luck! I don't think anyone exactly 'enjoys' the first week of uni because it's all so new and intense so mum-style advice is probably the most useful: eat proper food and try and take it all as it comes. I'm off to uni this week too but admittedly not for the first time so it's a bit less intimidating/thrilling.

No need to worry, you'll absolutely love it. I started uni two years ago in Manchester. Moving all the way from Exeter, it was scary at first being so far away but the best/nicest people I've met have been from Manchester. The city is just amazing for fashion, night life...everything really.
All I'd say is involve yourself in anything and everything, you'll meet so many people!

Good luck!

Sorry if this sounds weird, but I really like how your eyebrows look. I've always wished for mine to be more prominent..
