I can’t believe this is it.
I’ve been thinking about it since applying in October last year. I’ve been talking about it since the end of my exams in June. I’ve been preparing for it all summer.
Today, I leave for university.
Today, I begin the next phase of my life.
It’s really hard to take it all in.
This morning is pretty frantic but I want to write this post because I have just found out that I may not have internet for the next three days.
So here is my contribution to Jenn’s brilliant WIAW party although mine is technically a What I Ate Tuesday as I won’t be able to do todays food!
So as usual, here is my breakfast:
Weetabix mush (I’ll NEVER get bored), fresh blueberries and a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice. Probably the last glass of fresh orange juice I get to drink for weeks as I highly doubt I’ll have the money for luxuries like juice! Not to mention that I should probably give my teeth a break from all the sugar I’ve been eating/drinking this summer.
I spent yesterday morning at Tesco buying my food essentials to take to my new kitchen(!) and picking up some pans and baking dishes that my Granddad has kindly donated to me. I love having all of my own kitchen things :-)
For lunch I had two leftover curries, one chicken and one aubergine and green bean, along with some garlic naan and a dollop of mango chutney. Delicious. I definitely wanted to make the most of my last meals at home!
Tom came round in the afternoon and we spent the rest of the day together. It’s always hard as I said in my post yesterday, I’ll have to admit I did get a little teary at times. I’m super excited but I still hate having to leave behind all of the people I care about. Tom and I have been doing the whole long-distance thing for three years now but it doesn’t really get any easier!
Dinner was by my special request:
My mum had also bought my favourites for my last dessert:
All in all it was a truly lovely last day. My parents gifted me a beautiful fountain pen as a going away present :-)
I’m going to miss my family so much, we’ve always been close and it’s going to be weird moving on without them. My little sister is not looking forward to being an only child!
Right I need to go, I have to eat something before I leave and check one last time that I haven’t forgotten anything! I’m soooo excited!! :-)
Love you all
