After a month of travelling, I’m back in my room, on campus, at University. Nottingham is still the same (not that I expected it to change). I met up with all my friends yesterday, swapped stories about our respective breaks, and generally caught up on what’s been going on. We went out to the Works nightclub that night, which was packed, because it was the first Monday back. It was good to be away, but I had forgotten how much fun I have here, so it’s good to be back too.
I had a fantastic time this past month. It’s strange to think that I spent the same amount of time travelling around Japan. The Japan trip seemed to speed past, this trip felt like one long endless sunrise. I will get around to writing an entry about my trip sometime soon. I saw so many things, met lots of great people and experienced wonders I never thought possible. Of course I said I would write a big description of the Japan trip up too (I kept a journal of what we did there, and I did it again this time around), and it’s really only a matter of transcribing that and fleshing it out. Japan was 9 months ago though, and I still haven’t gotten around to it. I will do my best though.
I’ve been in a black hole information wise for this past month, I’ve talked to my mum a couple of times, but other than that I don’t know anything about what everyone has been up to. I’m looking forward to catching up with everyone. Part of what was great about this trip is that I was doing it separately from everything “back home”, I was doing it independently, and even though I did end up travelling with some other people at certain times, I was essentially doing it for myself. That being said, it’s still great to talk to everyone again, I’ve missed them.
The other thing I missed was my own music collection, and being able to listen to what I want when I want. Right now, it’s Thirty-Three by The Smashing Pumpkins.
