Sick Tings 023

30 September 2018

A lifestyle roundup of my week at university featuring all I've bought, watched, eaten, seen and been up to. Featuring an abba night out, buying an iPhone X, a Macmillan coffee morning and the best brunch in Southampton
Aaaaand we're back to reality. Having spent the majority of my summer in Asia it's been oh so weird to be back in good ol' Blighty. I have spent the last week in Southampton for freshers week ahead of lectures beginning on the first. The week started off really well with a spontaneous phone upgrade. My Dad and I were in town and I just popped into my phone provider to ask when my contract was up - October if you were wondering. Long story cut short, we walked into another phone shop and I walked away with an iPhone 10. Wowzers. I am so so impressed with my new phone so much so that I treat it as if it were a newborn child; always in my hands and leaving it at home when I go on nights out.

Speaking of nights out, our freshers week began with an ABBA themed club night and it was brilliant. Literally everyone I knew was there, dressed in quirky clothes, grooving to Super Trouper, and it was great. The greatest hits CD was definitely on repeat however, I heard Dancing Queen at least 17 times and Money Money Money 14 times. I don't think I'll be needing another ABBA fix for a verrrrry long time now.

On Monday, feeling a little worse for wear, I met my supervisor and we discussed third year and my current idea for my dissertation. I'm not going to go into it too much now but the general topic is going to be homelessness. I'll update you when I know a bit more...

Tuesday I spent unpacking. I've already posted my Third Year Uni Room Tour linked here and I feel right at home. As mentioned in that post, this house is a great improvement on our last so I'm really excited for the year ahead. Tuesday night we went out out for the second of our freshers week rendezvous. It was really nice to go out with both my housemates and my coursemates and have them all in one place.

Ahhh, Wednesday. Another day spent feeling a little delicate. We spent the day on campus wandering the clubs and societies fayre trying to decide what to join this year. At the moment I'm thinking Photography and Sign Language... Wednesday evening saw us have our first house meal - enchiladas. I'm excited to have more house meals this year, I'm thinking roasts on a Sunday, fajitas, pasta bakes, the lot. A proper cozy household.

On Thursday my coursemates and I headed to Nando's (it's a tradition of ours) for lunch and a sober catch up. It's pretty hard to discuss all the goings on in your life 6 vodkas deep in the middle of a club. That evening we had Dominos for dinner. Can you tell it was student loan day?

Friday was the Freshers Fayre aka the free stuff fayre. I'm going to be honest, it was pretty disappointing this year, but we did walk away with some tshirts, pens and a couple of slices of pizza. I wandered around town with my housemate before heading back for dinner and then onto a house party - our third night out in freshers.

Now, Saturday was both a spontaneous and brilliant one. What initially started as just going for brunch with one of my best friends - I had pancakes and a pink lemonade - ended as a full day of activities. We went charity shopping (something neither of us ever do), went shopping at West Quay and then did a food shop. Saturday evening was a very quiet one and I ended up tucked up in bed by 9.30. Rock and roll. I was meant to be going to a huge house party on my old road, but yanno, sometimes an early bed time calls.

And finally, Sunday. Today was the day of the Soton Bloggers coffee morning for Macmillan. I ate alllll the Collin the Caterpillar cake (courtesy of M&S) and chatted all things blogging with some other local bloggers. I finally met Cara and she's just as much of a babe in person as she is online. We took outfit photos - look out for those soon over on my instagram and chatted about all kinds of things. I'm having pie and mash for dinner tonight and am already in my onesie... A proper cosy Sunday.
