A Month In

Campus (including Old Joe with clock hands)

Today marks one month since moving into university and I have been busy settling in. I have been enjoying having independence, yet it was nice to see my family last weekend. Together we went out for a meal and did a small bit of shopping where I got a blind to go in my flat’s kitchen window (thank you Will) – this replaces the makeshift clothes line which dried our tea towels. Around the flat I have been doing lots of small DIY with string/ rope in order to create innovative spaces.

Blue with Monkey Bread

I’ve been baking a lot in university and have been making banana bread (also called monkey bread), ginger snaps, coffee cake and oat biscuits. I watched the Addams family with my favourite flatmates Ella and George over the weekend which was very nice and we have started hanging up Halloween decorations around the flat.

Vibing Swans

This weekend, I am going camping with my university’s SSAGO group which I am really looking forward to. It’ll be the first time I will’ve gone camping in nearly two years due to the pandemic disrupting various camping opportunities.

Cricket grounds where I got my second vaccine

I am enjoying learning lots of new concepts and have recently started learning how to code in Java – which is quite difficult but with a bit of rubber duck debugging it is going swimmingly! I still have not caught freshers flu, instead I became very ill from my second vaccine (which I got at a cricket stadium).

As you can tell, I have been very busy but I will definitely blog about camping – so look out for another blog in a week.
