rear windows




A few photos of my wee little room in student halls. Semi-normal blogging can hopefully resume soon now that freshers week is over. This afternoon has been rather bleak and spent with Morrissey on shuffle (granted he is never one to remedy bleakness) while I attempt to get my head around signing up to more courses and generally feeling hazy and dazey with brain as grey as the skies in Control.

Still, I'm enjoying being in a new city and especially relishing my walks back from the University which take me through the Curry Mile and countless Indian wholefood markets to stop by. Aching arms can be justified when they hold carrier bags laden with chapatis and spices for slap up home made Prawn Masalas! Also note my view which serves as a sneaky sort of homage to Hitchcock's Rear Window when dusk falls and each window is an animated little stage framing somebody brushing their hair or standing over a stove in each room.

Oh man, do you have your own room? I was just reminiscing about my Freshman dorm room...but man, I definitely don't miss having a roommate! I can't believe we didn't kill each other in that tiny little space...

Your student halls look far more organised than mine ever were. My laptop lived on bed.....always, and my bookshelf was mostly Vonnegut and tv boxsets..(I find the first year of uni is pretty much the best time to embrace these guys.)

The curry mile...my friend lives pretty much on one of those guys in Manchester....could think of worse places to stay.

that does indeed sound vaguely creepy but what can you do! I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and take it as a compliment.

I've just recently moved into an apartment building for the first time and no-one here seems to close their curtains which can be both good and bad..good in that catching a glimpse of some cute rug/lamp/desk is lovely, bad in that seeing some old french dude in his underwear (even just for a second) is too much information.

Your room looks so cosy! Sometimes I miss my first dorm room... It was generally a mess but oh, it was perfect.
