I crawled out of bed and chilled in my pjs listening to Bob Marley for while before making it out in time for the student newspaper meeting at 4. It was really interesting and hopefully will encourage me to do alot more writing. It was a sopping day so when I trudged on past my friends flat I decided to drop in. A few girls from our course where round too so we decided to snuggle up and stick on a film.
It was hard to leave the cosy flat when the credits rolled down the screen but I knew I had to meet my flatmates before the seafront festival. We went for pre-drinks at another friends where I got to meet a whole new crowd of people and then once everyone was nice and merry we bundled on the lemon bus. We went into Coalition to see Nero which was amazing though I felt pretty bruised and battered by the end of the set . I've never really heard much Dub-step before but am so glad my flatmates introduced me to it. We then caught the tinest bit of Nick Grimshaw in Life before heading to Digital where we stayed till it closed and were too knackered to head off anywhere else.
Feeling pretty delirious from lack of non-alcoholic beverages, the heat and dancing, an intense wave of happiness washed over me. It took me just two days to feel at home and settled in the University of Sussex. My flatmates and neighbours are amazing, the people from my course are also really cool. Already I feel close to lots of other students and that I've become part of a large, fun loving family.
