So my last post was about moving house… and I mentioned that I found something which provoked some feelings and thoughts. I was going through my papers to shred and as I did this, I found a letter. It was my enrollment letter for University dated the 11th of August 2011. It says about going to the website to activate my internet, and get my I.D card. The card died about a month ago, and to get a new one I had to give the librarian the old one. I think I got a little attached to it. I wanted to keep it for memories but I couldn’t.
It says in the letter that I was to report to reception on the 19th of September at 10:30 am.
Other than the boring official things like the assembly at the start, and the standard “this is a professional place” type thing, we had the thing where we were to meet your class mates.
On the 19th of September I met one of my newest best friends, Jelmer. We were to meet up with a person near by and find out some things about them. I remembered what he told me because it was similar in a way to what I was used to. He said that he used to do radio shows from his garage, and used keep it going during his dinner leaving early to ensure the song didn’t run out. I did the same with the radio station broadcasting from my room.
It was duting that week I met Robin and Fred. We sat in the same area of the room which we still roughly sit in nearly 3 years later. I met some memorable people. The ones that stuck out back then were Dan, Taz and Neil for me… Oh and a quirky girl who liked men in knitwear or something… I forget her name but I’m pretty sure I do a show and a little bit of work with her sometimes (That was Zoe by the way). They seemed to be in a group that changed a little before it settled down, but there were people in that group I wanted to talk to, but ended up not being able to. I guess all the other people were in halls and near by each other, and I’ve always been one to be outside the group, but either form my own or just help gel another group together. In the back of my mind though as everyone sat on a log made into a chair, I knew I would have another 3 years to get to know these people. I was right because I’ve worked on many assignments and projects with Zoe, and I’m glad things have turned out the way they have. I’ve also done some ace assignments with Jelmer and Robin who I got closer to while doing the creative media assignment, and without them, there would be no code red and no in the dark radio show. Some people really stuck out for me, and some i appreciate more than others, but I’ll never forget the first day and how much I wanted to be with the crowd then. I’m glad there is nobody in the class that I don’t like or would like to be out of my life.
But the uni days are coming to an end soon. It’s a little bit upsetting and makes me feel rather down even though I know I have built good friendships with the people i mentioned above and others. I just wish that we weren’t all moving away from each other so we can still have film nights and things. I enjoy them and they are one of the things I will miss the most, and Im more than 100% sure that some of them have no idea what it all means to me. The words I’ve written are a very small indication.
Anyway in other bloggy things… the news is that I’ve got a job interview date confirmed for Fun Kids. It means going to london which will be interesting as I’m not a fan of London. But if that’s where the party is… I’m there.
Also in Code Red news… I sent out the press release to news papers and radio station news places today. The reply was from the Gloucestershire Echo. I did my highpitched squeel in panic… and instantly stated that i need a “Panic Cake” in order to put me back on track. I squeeled because they offered to take a photo of us… which will be happening at 9am tomorrow morning. I feel like other members of the team should be around to join in.
And Finally… Today I looked at some of the other blogs I’ve subscribed to and one of them did a personality test. I always do those things and I got interested. Apparently my personality type is INFP which is Introverted iNtuitive Feeling Perceiving meaning Introverted feeling with extroverted Intuition. I knew I was introverted and Extroverted.
Right. I need to get some sleep and not let the thoughts and letters get the better of me. Tomorrow… I’m off into uni to finish off some things, do a special task and get some important uni work done. Later this week I’ll be messing with audio tapes.
