House 52 life...

Today marks one month since I moved into House 52 in the student village. A lot has happened in that month.

1) Well, first of all, I moved in.

My bed.
My wardrobe, shelves and drawers.
My desk. Most important thing is the flag though!
My picture wall and poster on my door!
My wall, complete with birthday cards, posters and my banner from my guides.

2) I have some awesome house mates.

Pim, Charlotte and myself on the first night out in Diva's.
Me and Jason, our house mate from Hong Kong.
Ben, Matt, Pim, myself, Sam and Jonny before Fresher's Ball.

3) And finally, my birthday!

Blowing out my candles.
My birthday cake from my house mates.
Me and Tom in the Wonky Sheep.
The balloons on the door. Says it all really.

I know what you're thinking. No, I'm not back with Tom, and I haven't spoken to him properly since my birthday. If you are clever enough you might be able to find the blog I've made about him, but I'm not telling you how to find it!

All in all, I have loved my first month here, and can't wait for the many more that will follow!

I want more weeks like that...

Well I'm back. I've been back for more than a month now, but I've only just managed to get around to writing this! I say that, I've just been too lazy really!

I've got to say, I did have an amazing time in Leipzig. There were a few times that I felt like screaming at some people (I'm naming no names!), but no holiday is ever perfect, is it?

I suppose the only part of the tour that I didn't enjoy was the stupidly long bus, ahhhh I mean coach *puts one euro in the pot*, journey that we had to endure there and back. I myself am not brilliant with coaches, so I had these travel sickness tablets called Joy Rides. Oh how I giggled when I first saw them!
I'm also not very good with sleeping on coaches either, unlike my friend Jenny, who slept like this:

I really don't understand how that is comfortable! Thankfully, I did eventually get to sleep: lying face down in the aisle of the coach, where I actually slept like a log! In all honesty I don't really care that I may have been a nuisance to everyone else that had to climb over me, I was comfortable and I got my sleep. That was all I cared about at that moment!

The actual tour itself was amazing and I had actually forgotten how beautiful Germany was. If I were to describe the whole week in words, well, I can't. So I'll do it in pictures instead.

Told you... beautiful!
Amazing artwork on the side of a building.
The only good thing about our sausage meal!
The orchestra's first concert.
Choir rehearsing.
The choir's concert in a monastery.
The married couple sleeping on the way home. Bless them!
In all honesty, I can't wait for Croatia!
