Now i'm back at University i'm feeling at home again. I'm not sure which is more my home, University or Home in Maidstone. On my first night back here I had problems sleeping, but now I am OK. I didn't think that I would have a problem settling back in here but I did have a little.
I got back into the way of going to Tesco to shop and washing up etc. but getting back into working is a little more tricky. I set my alarm for 7:30 to get up at 8 to have breakfast before the cleaner closes the kitchen at 9. I got up late at 9:30 and had to go to my lecture at 10 without breakfast only to find that it was cancelled.
My first lecture therefore was at 12 and was "Maths for Computer Scientists II" in which we learnt binary, decimal, hex conversions again, after learning them in "Computer Organisation and Architecture" and also at A-Level.
Oh well, at least it makes an easy start to the term.
On the topic of finding houses, while most people are looking for a house to rent, I am looking for a house for my dad to buy. He is self-employed buying houses, doing them up and then renting or selling them. If he buys a house for me to live in next year we can rent out the other rooms. The advantages of this as I can see them at the moment are that I would be landlord on site so if anything needed sorting I could do it there and then instead of the stories I have heard about people in other houses having to wait ages for problems to be fixed. Also, I could harass people for rent payments instead of my dad having to phone them up pester them for rent.
After the family brought me up here we went for a drive round to look at the outsides and areas of some houses for sale around the Uni. We went as far as Tile Hill looking at these houses which means that they are close enough to walk or cycle into Uni but far enough away to feel out of the bubble.
That's still quite a way ahead yet so I better focus back on the present and get some work done.
