Can you believe Fresher’s week is over?
My crazy week consisted of –
- Partying (of course)
- Attending introduction lectures and classes
- Family visits
- Hosting a dinner party
I have really enjoyed the start to my University career as I have met lots of fabulous people.
A greatly anticipated part of Freshers/introduction week was learning more about my course and what I will be learning over the next year. To say I am excited is an understatement. Though I have a lot to do during semester 1, I am already thinking about placement in semester 2; where will I be, who will I work with and what will it be like? Although, I have A LOT to do before then.
Although the academic side to University is incredibly important, I have also had a really great time socialising. One of my favourite events of the week was hosting a ‘Dinner Party’. This consisted of 8 teachers in training eating spaghetti and meatballs, drinking wine and playing ‘Never Have I Ever’. Though the food was not Gordon Ramsay standard; the company was definitely first class.
One of the ‘big’ decisions I had to make this week was choosing what church I wanted to go to. After speaking to many representatives from different church’s I decided to go to St Peter’s Free Church (which is conveniently close to my flat). I thoroughly enjoyed the service and was welcomed to a lunch afterwards where I learnt all about the different groups and projects that the church runs. It was also great to have a sense of normality in such a strange transition in life.
Overall I feel that I have had a really special week that has given me great memories and I am excited to see what the future brings.
