I've moved back to the city that I call 'home' whilst at uni and it's a little lonely at the minute as i'm the first to move into our new house ("all by myself, don't wanna be..." *cough*). It's always a little weird moving into a new uni house. I always think of the hundreds of people that have previously lived in my new 'home' and what wild antics have taken place. My thoughts always then move onto my new bed and what's gone on in that. I just think sleeping on a bed that someone else has slept on is just gross, but luckily this year I've got a brand spanking new mattress, which pleases more than it probably should. Being back in the city also means back to the hustle and bustle of city life. Taxi's, buses, cyclists, people, traffic, pigeons, concrete, work, noise and plenty of opportunity to spend some hard earned money. I guess the last point isn't so bad and of course the city means back to my (drunk) social life. Ha.

This is obviously one of the best reasons to be in the city
I think that out of all the places we've lived in during my uni years this new house is definitely my favourite. I've lived in flats the past two years which are great for space and running up and down corridors, but even though I filled my room with homely things they've never quite felt like home. But this is all different, we have an actual house and it just feels cosier and less like I'm just in someone else's room with my things in. I've got to admit the location of this house isn't the greatest. It's on the border of Forest Fields and Hyson Green, which if any of you are from Nottingham or know the city then you'll know that it's not the best of areas. Ha. But as I kept telling my mum, it's on the border and on the city side so it won't be all that bad (I hope i'm right!).
So here's to my last year at uni and hopefully the best year
