The reason for my lapse in posting recently is because i’ve just returned from a week in Portugal with friends from home, apologies. I’ve unfortunately caught a serious case of post-holiday blues, as have the majority of my friends who’ve also returned from the Algarve/Ibiza/Magaluf/other sweaty destinations. The main symptom being a longing to once again escape from nagging parents, the harsh reality of having no job (and in turn, no money) and countless re-runs of The Big Bang Theory on Tv. Although, there are positives; as you may have noticed… its actually very hot in England at the moment, which provides possibilities of pub-lunches, river swimming and live music around and about my local town of Tunbridge Wells. There’s no denying that residing in a fairly rural town has its perks in the summer – the trouble is that I am bored already. Such a lifestyle sadly doesn’t really compare to the chaotic hustle and bustle of student life in Leicester.
I am however returning in the not too distant future, as I will be moving into my new student house where I’ll be residing for my third and final year. Myself and many others are in agreement that In your last year of uni it is important to secure yourself a nice house that’s clean comfortable and well situated because after all, it’s your last year and you shouldn’t have to be roughing it throughout the course of your degree! You’ve earned the right to live in a nice place… probably. My previous house was far from what you’d call luxurious, or spacious, or even clean! It was a standard student house. We were a lazy bunch of lads who had slim pickings on the nice houses due to our inability to sort out anything of importance with any haste or enthusiasm. Advice? Start house hunting as soon as you can! Unless you want to end up in a smelly shoebox of a house.
