As of Monday I will officially be a uni student…although I suppose I technically already am as I have been enrolled for quite some time really.

I must say I am rather excited by it all and quite possibly feel older and smarted just being at university…I’m sure I’ll discover I’m deluded soon enough. It is rather comforting to know that now I am only studying things that I actually want to study, and so if I dislike something immensely then it truly is my own fault for choosing it.

O’week was rather interesting in general. The first day I went it was immensely (I’m liking that word at the moment) boring….crowded into a massive hall with thousands of other new students listening to people congratulate us all on getting into Monash uni, and then proceeding to go on a long and deadly boring tour of a campus in rather unpleasant hot weather…you see I’m really not a big fan of my first orientation day. The Wednesday was somewhat better, more informative and I got a free I tunes voucher…free is good…so I was happy, the downside being on this day I emptied half my bank account purchasing one of my textbooks…how sad for me. The Thursday was altogether pleasant in comparison to the other days. I met a number of lovely people, and actually learnt some stuff that might come in handy during…not to mention catching up with an old friend…an altogether pleasant experience.

So on the whole I’m excited about uni…the travel is going to be interesting, everyday I go to uni it’ll be about one hour and twenty minutes each way….and that’s connex on a good day! But being all zone two transport I do have the benefit of extraordinarily cheap transportation costs…going to uni four days a week I’ll be spending 7.68 dollars all up on approximately 10hours of travel…how good is that!

Oh…and incase you didn’t know…uni students are apparently obsessed with beer…really obsessed.

    “I am rather excited by it all and quite possibly feel older and smarted just being at university…”

    How does one feel older and smarted? I am intrigued.

    P.S. Avoid anything to do with a uni orientation like the plague, unless it directly relates to one of your subjects. It is a complete waste of time. Oh, and not all uni students like beer. Lots of them don’t even drink it. Some beer companies basically give the stuff away to student societies for O’week because most of the target market have just turned 18. They’re trying to start you young by plastering their logos everywhere to try to make it look normal and popular.
