I think I'm getting the hang of this 'people' thing...

Another day with the door open. Lots of friendly nodding as people pass has evolved into short chats and even conversations with meaning in them. Somewhere.

I'm living with these people, so it was bound to come eventually. 4 days though? Quite a feat but I suppose that's Uni.

I'm sure my thousands of avid readers are all wondering why this post is so late in the day. I'm usually a morning blogger, it's true but today I was busy and tired.

The busy is easy to explain, since I came to Uni to learn (a concept I only found out about a few months ago) and today was induction to what I will be learning for the next 3 years. So that was my tuesday.

But the tired? Either I didn't sleep well, or I was up late. I know what you're thinking 'It must be the beds, causing a bad night sleep' but no! I was up well past my bed time last night talking and drinking my usual mix of apple juice and water.

It all started with Laid back and Latte which was, simply put, an amazing event and one I'm very glad my housemates dragged me too. £5 entry was well worth it and the extra fiver for The Beautiful Word's album was a snatch, as they were brilliant. (as were all the other performers, poetry's never made me listen before, but the two last night were engrosingly aweinspiring.)

'but', cry all those who were in the packed Mandela Hall, 'Laid Back and Latte finished at 10! That's not late!' and that is true. But I think i've previously mentioned how the hall outside my room is a hotspot for drinking games and in the high spirits of the evening more broke out.

And so, I put on some Girl's Aloud Kings of Leon on my Super Speakers and sat out for the games making even more friends than I had the night before. Before I knew it, it was Tuesday already and I pottered off to bed with less than 6 hours before my alarm was set.

But I don't mind. I had a great evening and I think I'm getting into this People thing...

Dangerous thinking there, but hell, i'm livin' on the edge.
