I am eating a day old, cold pizza for breakfast as I write this which can only mean one thing: Freshers has well and truly began. In the past two days there has already been, a drunken snog, an awful photo, an odd flat mate, heartbreak, maccies at 3am and a tonne of alcohol.
Of course, I knew that all of my fears would be completely irrelevant when I arrived here, but right up until the very last moment, I felt like I was going to throw up.
So on the first day, after I was all unpacked, a few people from my building went to the bar on campus and at least thirty people showed up throughout the afternoon, so we all had a big chat. The ones who stayed the whole time have pretty much formed my first group here and we all went out together on the night.
Let me paint the picture for you: a group of girls (and one boy), pre’s drunk, glitter on our faces, heading down the steepest road I have ever walked on which went on for at least a mile, a nightclub which is situated at the bottom of said hill and not having ID’s on us….
Only two of us forgot our ID’s because I hadn’t planned on taking my purse down with me. We told the others to head in and we would run back- yes, you heard me. We ran back up this huge hill (thank god for my choice of trainers) though I am still sure that I have broken a toe.
Apparently the clubs air con had broken that night, so it was extremely hot and after a few hours, we left at half 1 in the morning and head towards McDonalds. On the way, we found a girl crying and clearly extremely drunk, so we split off; myself and my flat mate took this girl back to the student village while the other two continued on the mission to maccies.
We found out that the boy this girl had been talking to for a few months was sleeping with someone else at that very moment, and he lived in the same flat as her! So clearly, she was extremely upset and then angry, but we managed to make her laugh and delivered her safely home.
Afterwards, we returned to our own flat and ate 40 nugget between us all and of course, a few fries!
That was the very first night and I am now on my fourth, so I am extremely tired but loving life.
