I'm posting this as a Smurf. That's right, a real life smurf. A real life, naked smurf, because I've only got blue jeans and no white pants. Pillow case as a hat, mask as a... mask, blue clothes for the body, and my white trainers (pictures will eventually follow).
The reason? Noah's Ark Bop
! It was a Freshers' party thrown by the college in the Junior Common Room, and it was fantastic. Coke is free this week (and 40p/69-i-don't-have-a-cents-button a pint for the rest of the year), company is always at hand, and drinking games can be fun even when you're not drinking!
I'm living on a corridor with fifteen other people, all of whom are sound as a pound, and we all went to the bop together and had great fun in the middle of the bar playing Slaps
and I Have Never...
. After that I bumped into someone I know from my old school and had a chat, and then I went and played Pool with the guy two doors down.
University life is really fantastic. Sure, I don't go out clubbing with everyone (I find clubs suffocating), and I don't drink (coke is my limit), but I'm still having the time of my life. The atmosphere is just fantastic, everyone speaks to everyone else, and I couldn't have picked a better bit of the country to come to - not a more beautiful place, at least.
I'm off to bed in a few minutes as I only got four hours sleep last night, and tomorrow I think I'm meeting up with some friends in other years.
Anyway, I just thought I'd give an update on my life, seeing as I've never really done it and that it seems like the thing to do when you reach a certain activity.
Oh, and I met a girl at breakfast (shock horror!!). Well, not true... she initiated the conversation (I'm terrible with small talk, I must admit), so in reality she really met me. Either way, she's a nice girl. A year older and in a relationship, but we're friends.
