I wasn't nervous as I sat in car ram packed with my various possesions. I was excited to step into the unknown and for my new life to unfold. If ever a wave of panic did wash over me I firmly told myself to be smiley, friendly, open and to take everything as an adventure.
My friend from school met me in the carpark and helped me carry stuff to my room. One of my flatmates and two opposite neighbours were in, so after introductions (fully aware that making as many friends as possible is imperetive to a great uni experience) I went straight out for a bbq with them, waved off my parents and closed the door on my room filled with unpacked boxes and plastic bags.
I spent the afternoon at the neighbours playing twister and meeting new people as they arrived. When evening came around me and my flatmates cooked the classic student meal of pasta and sat around the table together like we were already family. We were pretty impressed when one guy whipped out a checked table cloth- it's all about the homely touches. After pre-drinks we headed to Falmer bar and at 3.30am I decided it was time to unpack.
