New Digs

Last Tuesday we got the keys to our new 5 bedroom student house in the centre of York. In the last four years, I’ve lived in a total of 5 houses but there is something wholly different about this one. In my third year I lived in a brand new build, had an en suite and a massive living room – it was awesome. And this one isn’t far different. It’s older, meaning that like a lot of buildings in York it’s actually a little bit wonky and it’s a little smaller, with far more nooks and crannies that you wouldn’t find in a new house. But I love it. 10 minutes from town, Waitrose and Morrisons up the road, what more do you need?

I’ve never seen a student bedroom so big in all my life, but mine is what you would describe as massive. I’ve actually struggled placing everything that I have because there are so many options. We have a dining table in the kitchen – a luxury that most student houses don’t provide or have the space for, and there’s an extra toilet downstairs which is useful when there are six people living in one house together.

I’ve also had a lovely twenty minute walk to work (by work I mean to the lift to work) by the riverside, to the Millennium Bridge in York. It certainly beats walking down lots of busy main roads when you’re still half asleep on a morning; this gives me a chance to wake up.

The task now is to find a job in York which I can use to pay the rent on my new house!

First Year’s Final Moments

I gotta say, this first year of uni has gone ridiculously well…and so fast that it actually frightens me. I’m literally now counting down the weeks to when I have to move out of good ol’ shitty Limes Court. Well, it’s not that bad. To some extent. I’m a bit miffed actually that uni’s going this fast, I mean, people did tell me it’d fly by but I didn’t expect it to go fast THIS quickly. No, I know I’m not exactly at the end of my third year – yet – but it’s fast approaching. And it’s still sad. I won’t see a lot of people for a couple of months over summer, which is why I’m staying here for as long as possible. Might try to get a job here…I’ve been looking, but I can’t find it in me to actually apply for one haha.

I won’t go into a lot, as you know I never write much in these posts.. I don’t feel like people want to sit there and read about my life too much…and I can’t be bothered writing pages of rants about how amazing uni is or how unorganised my particular uni seems to be. So instead, here’s Carly Rae Jepsen’s ‘Call Me Maybe’ which is adored by practically everyone I know… I totally understand why…
