moving melancholy

 

I'm continuously yo-yoing between excitement for the start of university and my move to Manchester and sadness to have to leave behind my beloved hometown and the all of glorious people that it houses. Today I'm leaning toward the latter because having to say goodbye to lots of people is strange and not my bag and I hadn't predicted quite how tricky packing the contents of my lovely little bedroom into boxes would be. As all my go-to clothes and most used possessions find themselves in the moving pile, my room starts to resemble an empty shell and it's all feeling a bit final!

I bought this brown leather skirt from Topshop a few days ago before regretfully handing over my store card this morning at the end of my last shift. Goodbye my sweet 25%, it was good while it lasted.

Aye, I'm just feeling melancholy. Can't believe that just a few weeks ago I was champing at the bit to leave and now I'd rather just crawl under a duvet and have my Mum stroke my head..

hey stevie, i emailed you earlier asking if you want any manchester tips for your move. It is sad at first moving away, but you will love it once you get settled in. I moved here for university 7 years ago and I'm still here now! xx

I remember that feeling! Its so much fun though. I'm in my final year at manchester now and trying to find any way to stay for longer!I really hope you fall in love with it as much as I did. Good luck!
PS which halls are you going into? on massive problem with most of them are tiny wardobes. so unfair! I suggest finding a man friend in your flat that you can 'borrow'cupboard space from!
