The last day

So this is what I wore for my last day of college, its pretty simple but it did get me some compliments 😀

Also even though I’ve had my last official day at college, I still have to go in for exams. I have 6 left!

I hadn’t really made any plans in advance, as I didn’t really know who I wanted to spend my last day with or what I wanted to do.

As college was over and we were all heading out, I began to feel kind of sad, the end of college means the start of change. I’m not very good at embracing change, despite my best efforts, I often find myself looking back on the way things used to be.

In a few weeks I’ll be 18, in a few months many of my friends will be off to University in different cities all over England and I currently have no solid life plan.

Anyway, as I walked out  I was actually going to go home but then I went to say goodbye to a couple of friends who I’ve known for over 10 years. It’s so weird to think that I’ve known them for more than half my life.

Then I ended up going for lunch with a group of friends then to see ‘X-men: Days of Future Past’, in the evening. The movie was amazing by the way, so if you’ve been thinking about seeing it, go for it as you wont be disappointed.

I’m the kind of person that puts a lot of stress/significance on little things like ‘my last day at college’, so it was imperative to me that the day turned out amazingly.

The day didn’t turn out anything like how I thought it would though, it was so much better. Definitely a memorable day!

Changes over time

This time last year college was so different in comparison to now. Honestly for the first 2-3 months I didn’t really like it. The main reason being that I didn’t really know anyone and the people I did know I didn’t know very well (I only knew about 4 people out of about 1000 1st years).

I remember having to spend my frees in the library, even when I had no work to do because I didn’t have anyone to hang out with. At lunches I would walk into the refectory, frantically searching for a familiar face. In general I felt like I didn’t belong and I started to regret not going to the same college as my secondary school friends.

I made a grand effort in all my classes to get to know people and make new friends. It was actually pretty fun getting to know people, I actually found it much easier getting to know guys than girls which is a little odd, as I went to an all girls secondary school.

So fast forward to 24th October 2013, so much has changed. I have lots of amazing friends, I’m enjoying all the subjects I study and I feel like I fit in.

So today in particular was a SUPER day which I will blog about in another post as I have a lot to say.
