Entertainment, Life Experience, University, World


I came home for the Easter break yesterday and now, after pigging out on practically everything that my parents’ fridge has to offer and taking full advantage of the sofa and therefore the remote control, I’m finally getting around to doing something worth a little more than soaking up the wonders of The Big Bang Theory and The Jeremy Kyle Show everyday. That said, I can’t say I’ve seen 09:25am for a long time and usually have to submit myself to ITV Player on a night, say about 2 o’ clock in the morning.

So I’ve been thinking (shocking, yes) and I’ve come to the conclusion that this holiday is solely for watching as many films as possible, catching up with my friends who I haven’t seen for months and spending much needed time with the fam-a-lam. This break certainly is going to be good, catching up with people, places and some much needed sleep that I seem to be fond of forgetting about when I’m at university.

It’s just that, naturally, and as expected, I’m going to miss my York companions perhaps a little too much. My two girls, the course and other people who I’ve met and love spending time with. What I won’t miss, I suppose, is the house at Limes Court, my uni accommodation. I left it with the others, sick of the state of the kitchen and the generic dullness of the whole house. Yes, I did say that the kitchen is a mess and I’ll tell you for why: we’re students and we’re not- … who am I kidding? The kitchen’s a tip because some people who I live with are actually disgusting and no matter how many times me and a couple of others actually clean it, the rest of them take it upon themselves to screw it all up again. Lovely people, ey!

But this is a happy and positive post and I refuse to allow myself to get bogged down with rants about the grotty student house in which I currently reside. Easter is going to be a fantastic time for me, and I intend to make good time for everyone who I love. You should also do this! I suppose this can be the ‘moral’ for my post, spend time with your loved ones while you can! Life is just too short to not make time for the people in your life.

Today – regardless of the fact that it’s now tomorrow at about 1 in the morning – has been one of the most interesting days of my life. I’ll enlighten you; today I discovered some of my mum’s home made flapjack in our kitchen cupboards. I have some recollection of her actually making this for me and, yes, I’m pretty sure that it’s mine, but in all honesty, you should have witnessed the glee on my face and therefore my housemates’ glee. Immense, I tell you! I had previously thought that I didn’t have any kind of sweet snacks stashed away and it just so happened that I was looking for a tub for some pasta for my lunch tomorrow – which I decided against in all the excitement – and there it was: a Celebrations tub with something in it. I was ecstatic, as I’m sure you can imagine.

However, this is not all that was discovered in our beautifully disgusting kitchen this evening, oh no. My lovely housemate, Tom, decided that it was a good idea to throw my slipper up on top of the cupboards and he did. But when it landed, to our horror, it disappeared behind the cupboard and made a rattling noise. Now this, as I’m sure you’re thinking right now, was terrifying. Being the brave soul that I am, I stood on a chair and reached to get the slipper, which I did, and I also found a disgusting and manky Costcutter bag with something in it. Just picture the fear on our faces as we discovered this awful specimen of student life from previous years…okay I’ll cut the crap (thank God, she says) No, I can’t really spruce up the events of today so much that you’ll think that they’re absolutely wonderful and joyful and simply amazing. But, the message I’m trying to get across tonight is that me and my housemates had a laugh, this time not at each other. It amazes me that (now bear with me as I go all sentimental on you) I’ve known these people for, what? Five weeks? And I love them all so much already. Every day is something different when we get to hang out; the conversations that we have vary each day and we learn something new about each other constantly.

Now I can see that this post has taken a turn for the…shall we say, boring? Yes. But I need an outlet and you, WordPress, you, minimal, yet awesome readers are it. So suck it up and listen to me when I say that I have the best house anyone in uni could ask for. Period.

-Oh my God, did I just say period? FML.-
