Nothing's ever what you expect it to be

I was totally dreading today. I don’t know seemed as though the novelty of uni had worn off slightly, I was sick of buses and travelling, I had my mosty boring subject today - a lecture and a tutorial, and in a sense, Monday’s is my ‘anti-social’ day. The day where my friends, I felt, were only Katrina and Javannah, and who ever else they had met, and I felt like I was intruding by hanging with them all the time - after all, Katrina and I went to school together.

But what a good day it turned out to be! After my Human Service Provision lecture, I went straight into the Kaf to do some reading before the tutorial. Katrina, Javannah, Rachel and Rosa walked past, and waved me over to them, but I waved back, and continued reading. I didn’t want them to feel like they had to include me, just because Katrina and I went to school together. But then a few minutes later, Katrina walked over, and asked me why I wasn’t sitting with them, and I said something about how I had to do the reading, and knowing me, I wouldn’t get any done around other people since I prefer to talk. Which is true, yet not the whole truth. A bit later after that, say 5 minutes, maybe less, Javannah and Rachel had walked off, and then they walked past me again, and Javannah waved over to me. So I thought, what the heck, I’d go and join them! So I did. They’re a great bunch, and I didn’t feel like I was intruding at all. It was just my own silly insecurities about it all which made me resist going over to them in the first place. They wanted me to join them! And maybe Katrina felt like that I didn’t want to hang with them, instead of the other way around. Isn’t that funny what insecurity can do to us? Well, maybe not funny. Weird.

Remember my assignment I did in exactly an hour and a half yesterday - my first uni assignment? Well, we were talking about them in the tute today, and I began to worry that I hadn’t done it right, so agfter the tute, I went to the tutor, Gail, and asked her to read it, and she said it was "just excellent. Very, very good". Wow, that’s high praise from her. I don’t know her very well, only having her once a week, and only for the third time today, but I definately feel that she gives honest feedback. I’m really happy with that! Now I feel that it’s really out of the way. Well, it will be once I hand it in.

I got to see inside the uni bar for the first time today - it’s a great atmosphere! It’s become one of my favourite places on campus. It appears even more relaxed than the Kaf, and there’s just a real...uni atmosphere about the room. There’s tables to study at, and they have great food there too. And beverages, of course. Ha²!

And then to top it all off, Graham gave me a lift home after my Sociology lecture, so I didn’t have to catch the bus home, and saved over half an hour! And recieved letters from two of my favourite penpals.

So all in all, today was a great day, and nothing like I expected a cold Monday morning to be!
