LARP's (Live action roleplay,) Think along the lines of Dungeons and Dragons but instead of sitting round the table talking about it you act it out. Generally involving medieval style costume, and foam swords. Although there are also vampire and murder mysteries for the less active.

My first day as a University student at Warwick, began with me getting up at 6 am for some reason, possibly nerves. So after an attempt to begin a morning routine for the rest of term I set of to University. Despite the weather being generally bad, it had cleared up nicely for the walk and as a result the whole thing was very pleasant, I got to see parts of Coventry I hadn’t before and for the most part the route was nice and green with copious amounts of ducks. The whole trip took me 1 hour 16 minutes to complete, and so established it as possibility (And that cycling would probably be very practical.)
Yet today didn’t really feel like a first day to much. For most people this will involve settling into halls, unpacking, meeting people from your hall, etc. I picked up an ID card, and picked up some leaflets in the Students union. So for some reason it doesn’t quite feel like a first day for me.
Most of the potential activities were made pointless by the fact I am staying at home, and the fresher’s events on today didn’t really appeal to me. Since loud music and hordes of people trying to loose all reason doesn’t really appeal to me.
I didn’t put to much effort into meeting people as with my ability with faces/names I need fairly prolonged contact to remember who people are. So I think trying with people in subjects/societies may actually result in me seeing people again. That and presently and I am sneezing regularly, and so I shuffled of home to be miserable alone.
Which really explains why I wrote this, the combination of violent sneezes and a lack of inspiration for my story means led to me writing this thing. I also apoligise if this turned out to be frightfully dull for that same reason. If I ever write again I will look for a more interesting subject than what I didn’t do
