There was a Student

There was a student who it seemed could not gain the satisfaction and approval of those new people they had met, they seemed to want them to be the one who kept things in order and as soon as the standards sliiped it seemed they wanted no more and decided (well the interpretation was) they wanted nothing more to do with them.
The answer was to jump on a train and make the ten hour journey to that place everyone has a dear longing for, Home. The journey was one full of anticipation and happiness, the student would be leaving their teenage years and embark on the path to adulthood. At home things were not as they seemed instead expecting a different person they were greeted by someone who seemed to have changed for the worst and gave some advice to the student. The student embarked on the journey back to University with a changed outlook on life and decided to embark on a new lifestyle. The student decided to clear the cupboards, sort out the paperwork and begin again. The student however took no liking to the new lifestyle and found themselves in the toilet making sure any calories they had eaten were not digested and took to listening to the music that got them through the darkest days of their teenage life. They listened to this music not for comfort but reassurance that things get worse, times can get very dark, and that sinking to all new lows is a normal part of life. A process they are willing to go through in order to gain the approval they so badly want.

What I have been up to.

well guys a lot has happened. i am no longer a student of german and education but now a history and education student. i have a lot of catch up to do and it seems a rather daunting task ahead. in 48 hours time i will be crossing the Tamar Bridge back in to my native Cornwall and going home after 4 long weeks and only to come back 4 days later to return back to Aberystwyth. i am getting a grip on my life and hoping that soon i will feel a lot better in myself and happier here. I am on Official strike meaning that I will not be doing any cooking or cleaning that is not for my benefit. Bitchy. No I am fed up of clearing after everyone else and then cooking for them. I have cooked so many times and only once has someone cooked for me.

Ready for Bed

I just been out and about on the town with my friends Leah and Flic, had a great time and am now sat at home listenin to my new fave song the Sam and Amanda cover version of Barbie Girl, you gotta love it. But anyhow I'm just ready to go home to bed back in Cornwall and not here in Aber. Those of you who said it wouldn't last 4 weeks, you may be right. Sorry to those who have believed in me and thought I could do this.

Need Vitamins

I have just eaten a salad for the first time since I came to Aber and drank Multi-Vitamin Juice in the hope that it will keep the infamous Fresher's Flu at bay. It seems everyone is coming down with it and I think I will be the next victim. I am pleased to also say that we passed our first flat inspection with flying colours YaY.

Ok so I missed a Lecture or Two

Today has been so bad I slept in late and missed my two morning lectures. V. Bad and expect I will be in trouble when I see my tutors next. I then go to my German lecture this afternoon and nobody is there so at first I cannot find the room, 30 minutes of walking from building to building on campus and going round in circles is very frustrating, then for nobody to be there, Oh Come On. I decided instead to go get some groceries at Morrisons, about 10 mins on bus from Campus. I then come back and make a stew which I will go eat in a bit. Last night I admit to getting a little tipsy but not very very drunk so that resolution has been kept to and I must stop smoking but I have had only 3 today so have cut back very much compared to last week.

So it begins

Broke my word this morning by having a Cigarette, but I had a healthy breakfast and also drank Cranberry Juice so I think I may well be on to a good thing. I actually went to a seminar even though it was a fortnightly one and the next one is next week, better early than late. I am going to my first lecture in Language, Culture and Identity in the European Union this afternoon and am quite looking forward to it. I am going shopping later to buy vegetables and will make a Vegetable Stew for dinner and freeze some so that I do not have an excuse to go and buy Ready Meals. The weather here is amazingly nice considering it is October and we are in Mid-Wales which is notorious for excessive rainfall. Anyhow I'm going to sign off now, so to everyone I send you all best wishes and hope that whatever you are doing, it's going great

A Brand New Diary

Two Weeks of living it up as a Fresher have come to an End, and I have decided to keep a Diary and follow some new rules:
1. No excessive Alcohol Consumption
2. Give Up Smoking
3. Eat Healthy
4. Knuckle down to my Uni Work
5. Find A Job
6. Stop being Homesick
7. Not allow people to use me as a Pushover
8. Learn Welsh (Cymraeg)

Well as a fresher I can say I have not followed one of these rules and I can safely say that I feel no better for it and now I begin my new life here in Wales, a whole new Country, a whole new Me. I think the homesickness may well be down to the fact that I know I have been away from home since 7:40AM on Friday 21st September. I feel that this could be the start of something good or at worst I fail and board the train back to Cornwall. Anyway here's a picture of the Building where I have my Education Studies lectures and seminars.
