The first week.

I know the first week isn’t over! I can count. I just want to crack on with topics so I thought I would get this post out of the way.

I have decided to show you what I got up to in my first week. Here goes.

This handy lil thing has a campus map in the front which is awesome because they keep changing my lecture theatres around!

Oh I will also write, so that the pictures don’t just have to be as boring as pictures can sometimes be.

Was I nervous? Why yes I was! It all got much better after a few lectures and I realised I had the mental capacity to understand the content. It had been a real fear of mine that I had been out of the game too long.

I wore comfortable shoes. You may also note that I wore fun coloured, comfortable shoes. #tryingnottolookold #muttonaslamb

Ever the practical adult I knew that being organised was always going to be key. I took a water bottle, I wore practical shoes and I didn’t take anything that I didn’t need that day. I also guess that’s the upside to owning a car (which I did not the first time around). I can leave the just incase things in the car.

Let’s be honest. Trying to read at home is going to mean Mr One asking for raisins, Mr Six telling me that Mr One pinched him and Miss 11 watching Big Brother or something perfectly horrible.

I really enjoyed the time out and I remembered all the stuff that I ignored as a young student about eating well and not fading away in the afternoon.

Wow you should see the new UCSA. I was walking when I took this shot so let's not judge people, also they sell the most horrendous $2 noodles but I got some just to show you ;-)

So on a whole I’ve got off to a start of sorts. I am going to find it all a bit of a juggling act and I am by no means ‘sorted’ for the whole year. That’s why I am writing this blog though, I want you to know that I am not lucky that I have this opportunity, I am lucky that I am brave enough to just make this opportunity available to myself. I would have rather tried and failed than died knowing I always wanted to give it a shot.
