October 07, 2005
When I last wrote in my blog I was packing up my stuff and saying a teary farewell to Leamington and to the university. I was waiting to graduate and then do god knows what. Everything ahead of me seemed uncertain and very scary.
Now, 3 months later, I am back at Warwick, living on campus and beginning my MA…..now that is scary. I only made my final decision that I wanted to come back here as the sociology graduation party was finishing on graduation day. It suddently hit me that for the first time in years I had actually started to enjoy learning and that I should try to cling on to that feeling, and I suddenly knew that I should stay on at warwick. But because of the fact that I decided this on graduation day I had resigned myself to the fact that it was too late. I spoke to someone and was told that there was a place on the course waiting for me if I wanted it…..for a person who was already drunk and emotional, this took awhile to sink in. But it did, and 2 days later I submitted my application. It was all very rushed but it has worked out.
Im annoyed at myself for not thinking it all through properly before I graduated, then I could've arranged to live with friends, but instead Im in halls. It's handy for lectures, but my god I had forgotten how claustrophobic I get living in 'the bubble'. Speaking of claustrophobia, Im getting out of here now, heading to Birmingham for the weekend – Supergrass tomorrow night (if I can get a ticket :S).
Hopefully I'll get round to writing about the great summer I had at some point, but before I go… a big thank you to Gareth for introducing me to the world of the Mighty Boosh…..WOW!
