Well, Sunday evening is here again!

Sundays are always weird in student accommodation for weekenders like myself (weekenders being people that stay in accommodation over the weekend rather than travelling home). It’s our last day of peace before the rest of our flatmates come back from wherever it is they live. Typically, it’s a day spent telling ourselves we’re going to start working any minute now, but actually just sitting together in the kitchen laughing at utter nonsense that we don’t get away with during the week. Then, at last, people slowly begin to trickle in at about 8 in the evening.

I live with 10 other people, but there are more people who live on different floors and pretty much live with us. Everyone just comes and goes as they please. It’s really funny living with this many young people, especially considering I lived alone with my mother for a good few years before coming here. Sometimes, we function like one big happy family. Other times, we’re split into bitchy little friend circles (but this never lasts too long). Rather than attempting to describe everyone, I’m just going to put in some photos of them. An idea of what these people are like is bound to be painted over the course of the blog, so there’s no point in trying to capture everyone in a few sentences right now!

These (and possibly some others) are the people who will most likely be mentioned in future posts, as these are the people that affect me most on a day-to-day basis. For now, though, I must sign off as it is time for me to make a polite appearance in the kitchen to greet my friends (or possibly just put music on in my room and listen to that instead).

I hope you all have a great week.
