Doctor Mysterio - don't forget the traditional student fry up-anything goes and can produce some wonderful meals. So far you've got soup, beans on toast, cheese on toast and fry ups. Add to that an early morning bacon barm from the stall at All Saints on Oxford Road and you should be set up for the day.
My halls. They're a wierd format in that you're either in a single flat, or a flat with 5 people, and I'm in one of the single flats. The warden was also far from comforting, telling me that they had a hell of a problem with the people that stayed there last year... involving drugs and the place getting trashed (they're private halls). I've already begun to plan out some sort of escape plan if this happens this year.
I am a social person, and if people just hide in their flats, or are the scum of humanity, then I'm going to go mental.
EDIT: Turns out the guy that showed me round didn't know his arse from his elbow - I got shown a studio flat, not the flat I was going to be in. I am sharing a kitchen with other folk, so I'm a lot happier now! Woo!
What scares me most? The possibility that I wont see any of my mates from home again.
Yeah, I shouldnt worry....I'm not going to want to go out every night...I like a quiet night in with a book sometimes anyway. There'll be plenty of people who are like you - thats the good thing about uni, there's variety!
I'm worried about that too-I'm not a clubber really and would much prefer sitting in a pub or going to a gig.I don't want to be dragged out clubbing every night because although I occassionally go...I pretty much hate it.
I'm worried that I will be living with people who are boring and keep themselves to themselves - I like talking - i'm all for alone time each day but if my flatmates just stay in their room all the time i will go crazy! also worried about talking too much and people thinking i'm really loud and annoying! Not a major fan of clubbing but I like going out every night - pub, cinema, casino etc.. Really hope I make some good friends and learn how to stop spending so much money! I'm thinking about just getting a student loan and having it as back up funds (or clothing allowance, lol!)
feeling left out.
especially I'm an international student.
