University starts again.

So after spending my summer down in Cornwall, up to Bristol — work work work — up to York…

York was nice, Tom and I did nothing because we were both desperatley poor and couldn’t leave the dogs for more than 4 hours or so. The dogs were cute and really warmed to me, Rolo actually loved me by the end of the week and Ringo made me spoon him, sweeties. Tom and I just played board games like Chinese Checkers, watched stuff and went to the beach with his parents when they came back from holiday. This was nice.

…After York, Bristol — work work work — down to Cornwall again for 4 days and the parents (and Tiffany!) came up as well. This was nice. Since then, more work work work: The Blenheim Horse Trials was an odd one, camping with Nikki in Oxford at a posh Horse show serving tea and coffee and working with some unusual people, it was… an experience. But I earned a loada moola so I am not complaining.

So during the last week I have pretty much done nothing except see King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard who were awesome live, played continuously and was one of the best gigs I’d been to.

Aaaaand then there’s Uni.

So I started yesterday, once again it filled me with dread for the next year. Placement crap, dissertation crap, no real friends on the course, Livvi going through a load of shit, the lecturers talking about when we’ll be applying for jobs next year blah blah blah. No thank you. I literally feel like pretty much the only one in there not wanting to go into teaching for quite a while. I’m pretty isolated in that sense.

It’s OK, I have Health and Wellbeing to visit if I need. This house will also enchance my general mood because I am so much more relaxed here, I can study in the study and chill with lovely people when I want, and if I don’t want to be social, they understand and don’t judge me for it.

I’ve been doing yoga, I started a 30 day live class app thing yesterday and am continuing onto today. I think that will also help if I get into it a bit more. I’d prefer to do it every morning, but when I have early starts I doubt I’ll pull myself up early enough to get dem stretches in. I will try on occasion though and pursue it into the evening.

C’moooooon Katie.
