I don’t party. That statement itself should tell you that for me fresher’s week consists merely of attending enrollment and induction at university. Not to say that I am a boring old student but the fact is nearly every event in Fresher’s week involves one thing; alcohol.
As you probably have guessed by now, I don’t go near that stuff which means all those parties, clubs and such things are a no no. You may ask then, why the hell would university be exciting then and quite frankly I have asked myself the same question. The answer is that I currently have no answer. The jury is still out on this one since I have only had a three lectures so I can’t really enthuse about the joys of studying literature at degree level just yet.
So how else can university be enjoyed? Well quite honestly, my intention to go to university hasn’t been to enjoy myself and have a wild old time anyway so it is not a primary concern but I guess if I have to spend three years there then I may aswell have some sort of fun. How though? The main thing about university is the vast amount of clubs on offer and normally they don’t really interest me but this time, I am really hoping to join the student newspaper. I am hoping it will be a great experience and also make my journey to university more worthwile as currently I have to travel an hour just for an hour lecture! Of course, no one would be demotivated at the beginning of the year but I suspect that may just change as the weeks go by.
Saying that, the timetable is extremely liberating, so much so that I don’t know what to do with myself at times. Oh yes, the set reading which I am behind on!
So Until I Have Read 600+ Pages..

Joking, you’ll probably be seeing me way before then 😉
