Last week as my first week at Worcester. I am commenting from home and the drive is roughly an hour away from me. The reason why i decided to commute is because i will only be attending Worcester Thursday and Friday. Staying at home also meant i could keep my job so that i would still have an income.
(My friend very kindly brought my this travel mug since i am commuting! Look how cute it is!)
The first day was mainly filled with Welcome Talks. There was also an introduction to the Independent Study (the dreaded dissertation!). On the first day i attended the Freshers Fair, where i got a few freebies! I picked up the average free pens, pencils and highlighters. What made the freshers fair for me though was the free pizza from Pizza Hut and free Ice Cream!
They were also giving out fortune cookies, inside it says "if you think sunshine brings you happiness, then you haven't danced in the rain". I interpreted that to mean, even when you have having a really rubbish day, you can always find a little bit of happiness, even if its the smallest thing.
It has a very similar meaning to my favourite quote, which is "life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, its learning to dance in the rain".
If you have started or starting back at School, College or University, than i hope its going well!
