First Impressions - Moving In

Hey All!

What a weekend it has been! Unfortunately I had to miss Saturday's post due to the incredibly hectic day I had. Hectic probably isn't the right word. Just busy, incredibly busy. I woke early on Saturday morning, with everything ready and packed away in the cars, and before I began to get ready I heard some terrible news about a close college friend. I don't really want to go into it but if you're planning on going to university and/or are 16 to 25, GO GET YOUR MENINGITIS INOCULATION! It's so important.

A little bit later than we'd hoped, I was on my way to my new home. I followed my dad in my own car throughout the nearly 4 hour car journey and eventually we arrived at my new house in Hull. I was greeted by my landlords and handed a box full of freebies to welcome me to university! My landlords only recently bought the properties on my street so they told us to lower our expectations but when I walked into my room I was quite happy.

My room is rather large! Especially for a first year student. I have a single bed, chest of drawers, wardrobe, desk, shelves, bedside table, and a basin. In between all that, I have a lot of floor space! There is an upstairs toilet with a shower next door and downstairs there is a small communal area, kitchen and a second toilet. I share the house with 4 other people, two guys and two girls. We're all a pretty similar age, give or take a year or two, and we seem to be getting along very well so my first impressions of moving in so far have been great.

I don't live far away from my boyfriend now so it's great to be able to see him whenever I want and the university is about a 5 minute walk away. Perfect!

This was just a quick little update while I've been busy getting settled. Since arriving around 1pm on Saturday, it has taken me all weekend and today to unpack. I'm only just nearly finished. I just have a few finishing touches to my room left to make then I'll feel properly settled in! Hopefully tomorrow I can get my student ID too.

Pictures of Hull and my room coming soon!

If you've just moved into uni, good luck with everything!
