Time to leave the comfortable campus bubble and return to the wider world. New friends, new responsibilities, new courses. As for the world I left behind about three months ago? It’s in a different part of Surrey, and they need Christmas presents.
September 20th – December 13th 2008.
Does my Fresher status expire when we go back in January?
University certainly lives up to the stereotype: it’s a new chapter, but I think I’m done with the settling-in process, now. I’ll see Royal Holloway, University of London again on January 12th (or thereabouts). And hopefully I’ll be as hyper-organised and as raring to go as I was in the Autumn.
I’ll certainly be well-fed. I hope I don’t forget how to wash-up, now…
