So I’m going to pick up where I left off, leaving all the months I’ve been missing in action without an explanation.
And who knows??.. maybe at some point I will fill in the blanks with a post or two.
Here I go;
Currently sprawled across two mildly uncomfortable train seats, I begin to reflect a journey which seems much more significant than just a few train stops. My feet hanging over the arm rest and blood rushing down my legs, I have just completed freshers week. ✅ officially exhausted.
Having escaped with vague drunken memories, a new set of friends and only a small bruise – I feel proud for making it out in one piece.
Going to uni can be challenging for everyone faced with a new town, new people, strange surroundings and for most moving away from home. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t scared of the whole “life changing phenomenon” but up until the week before I suppose I’d tactically avoided thinking of the concept.
You see, I seem to have made a bad habit, I worry about the things I can’t control and neglect the things I can. Take for instance packing my bag…
With the final day in sight, multiple nags and no registering reaction from me before I new it I was leaving “tomorrow”.
My cousin ended up taking over packing whilst I blew up an inflatable doughnut I found from at the bottom of my suitcase…..Why?..I do not know but I suppose yet again it was a lot easier to remain distracted than face the fact I was actually leaving.
Anyway, here I am narrating my new chapter, the start of new beginnings. I’ve flown the nest (well for 75% of the year) and now I shall take the foundations to build my independent “adult life”.
I aim to post weekly with some posts short and relevant others intense and mental heath reflective. So there you have it, my first week all done.
Be bold, be brave and jump into the things your to afraid to do because even if it all goes tits up – at least you’ll have a good story to tell 😝
Top tip when packing for uni; NEVER DO WHAT I DID PACK ASAP because not only will blowing up inflatables make you light headed, but spending your last day at home being chased around is not exactly the ideal.
