On Wednesday I moved up to Shropshire! I’m now at Harper Adams University College, all settled in and keen to start my course.
I wasn’t looking forward to Freshers week, I’m going to be honest. As I’m not a big drinker I thought it might be horrible and people would force me to drink but it’s been pretty fun! I drove up on Wednesday with mum, and dad followed behind with the majority of my stuff in the Land Rover! We didn’t go on the motorway and got stuck behind bikes, tractors, lawn mowers, horse boxes and caravans, and it took about three hours.
On arriving at Harper, I had to register that I was there, get my photo ID, sort out the finance stuff and register with the doctor. Then it was moving in time! And it quite quickly became apparent that my stuff was not going to fit in the kitchen! So the majority of my food is in my room on the shelf, because that’s the only place it will fit!
There’s been a party every night, and another one tonight. During the day we’ve been having course inductions, tours of the campus and been playing games. I haven’t really enjoyed it as much as I could, as I felt so ill the first couple of days, but I feel much better now although not 100% still. I was worried that as I don’t drink I’d find the whole experience terrifying, but it’s actually not been too bad. The people in my flat are all lovely, which helps.
So that’s all from me – this weekend I’m going to look around a few yards so I can bring Oscar up :)
