When I moved down to Cornwall I knew university was going to be hard. I knew I’d have only one week (if that) to read an entire book, make notes and comment on the themes, I knew I would have to write at least 3 pieces of work and have them all peer reviewed within three days of each other. But I had no idea my first assignment would be due next Tuesday!
Yep! 4 days from now I have an essay due which I hadn’t really thought about, I had finished the book and made about 10 pages of notes on it but I didn’t feel ready to write. So yesterday on my train home I sat down, stuck my headphones in and put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) and just wrote until all the crap in my head was down on the page. It still needs a lot of work but I’m feeling much happier now.
Anyway, onto the other parts of uni. Freshers was amazing! Yes, I was one of those people who had freshers flu almost all the way through. I dressed up as a nun, I joined the Kayaking society, I’ve been to Club I (oh the infamous Club I, if you’re from near where I’m from just think of winkers!), I threw up a lot, played a lot of drinking games, threw up a bit more (tmi?), learnt how to twerk (thanks Lowri) and helped out on some photography shoots at the beach!
I can’t believe I haven’t blogged for over 5 weeks, it really doesn’t feel like it’s been that long which is why I’ve felt okay putting it off. But now I’m sitting here and I feel like a stranger on my own blog. I’m going to try and work on this, I don’t want to promise a weekly blog post right now as uni is on the forefront of my mind so for now, let me leave you with some photos from my first few weeks at Falmouth University.
