For one of the first times since I’ve been at uni I actually feel a bit like a stereotypical student.
Before I go into the details I just want to say that the last week and a half of my term are going to be ridiculously busy so I apologise ahead of time if I don’t manage to post every day! I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to being home for a whole month at Christmas, I really need the time to relax and enjoy myself.
But anyway back to the story…
Last night was my hall of residence’s Christmas party. So we all got dressed up and went off for a three course meal and some dancing.
I had a few drinks, as is required by students on a night out 😛
Here is a photo of me and one of my new friends, she’s absolutely lovely and not to mention hilariously good fun!
It was great fun though, I do love getting dressed up 🙂 And I was pleased that my dress was suitably Christmassy!
The meal was actually surprisingly good, I have to say I didn’t expect much because we didn’t pay much for the event. Now I’m afraid the following photos are from an old and
pretty rubbish point-and-shoot camera and were taking in the semi-dark with the flash on so they’re pretty awful!
Starter was a roasted tomato and pepper soup with croutons (albeit quite soggy croutons!). The soup actually had quite a nice flavour and I like light starters because it means I have plenty of room for my main course.
Main course was a mushroom Wellington along with a sort of potato cake and salad. I love pastry and mushrooms so this was always going to be good for me, even if the pastry was somewhat lacklustre.
Dessert was a chocolate cheesecake and a cute little pot of ice cream. The ice cream was lovely, by this point I was a little tipsy so I have no idea what kind of ice cream it was but it was nice anyway 😛
We then went back to the girls’ flat and stayed up chatting until I fell asleep! Apparently, according to my research this morning, mixing my medicine with alcohol tends to lead to increased drowsiness and dizziness…
All in all it was a really fun night!
Today I had two quite important meetings and in time with them I had two naps. So a little less like the “stereotypical student”.
I leave you tonight with a photo of my dinner:
Spicy couscous and pan-fried courgette with garlic. Delicious, I needed the veg!
Anyway I’m off to bed, despite my naps I’m absolutely exhausted still 😛
Have you got any Christmas parties coming up?
Were/are you a stereotypical student?
What’s your favourite thing about the Christmas build-up?
