the-sweetest-disasterr asked: Hey, i've got a place at CCCU in September to study History and American Studies, and I was just wondering how you are finding it? It is my insurance offer but I think I will end up going there. I didn't get much of a chance to visit the subject areas but picked it as I love the modules they offer. Thank you :)
I absolutely love it!! The courses themselves are really interesting, and the staff are really good and helpful too :) I personally am dropping American Studies next year, but that’s purely because I found that I prefer British history. You learn so much though! The uni itself is great! There’s always stuff to do here, the library is unreal, there’s loads of support for you too :) it’s honestly the best thing I ever did coming here! And it’s such a nice place to live :) where are you looking at living? If you ever have any questions or want advice or anything (no matter how stupid!) then just ask, because I know when I was in your shoes I had loads of questions but didn’t know of anyone to ask! Even if you end up coming here and you want advice, let me know :) xxPs. I went on the New York trip this year with American Studies and it was AMAZING!! They’re doing San Fran next year :)
And I didn’t get out of bed till around 12:30! I resigned myself to the fact I wasn’t going to have a productive weekend after all, but then randomly changed my mind!
Today I have:
* Watched Ant & Dec’s tribute to the Likely Lads on YouTube.
* Done 3 loads of washing.
* Cooked an actual meal - including afters!
* Watched a whole series of Phoenix Nights - including bonus features!
* Completed a boat order, several car orders, a objective to get a rosette, and made a substantial amount of profit on Hay Day.
* Completely gutted my bedroom and sorted out all my drawers.
* Hoovered the entrance hall.
* Washed up so many times I can’t actually remember.
* Watched Loose Women (purely because I’ve already caught up on Corrie!)
* Tidied the kitchen.
* Given my bathroom a proper good clean (I stink of bleach now!).
* Danced around my bedroom like a prat to various songs on my iPod.
* Read every single article on the Daily Mail website.
Now I’m bored, and waiting for the washing machine to finish then I can stick the tumble dryer on and go to bed!!
If there’s one way to find out how important loyalty is to you, it’s to move to the other end of the country!
Before I moved down here, I thought I had a substantial number of friends. These friends that promised they would keep in touch, that promised they would come and visit me, that said they would miss me loads. Now I find that the list has shrunk so much, I can count the number of friends on one hand - and still have fingers left over!
Well so far, I’ve had 2 visitors - my mum and my sister. And three, yes THREE, people that genuinely keep in touch with me. I’ve known my housemates for 8 months, yet they’re more loyal to me than people I’ve known for almost 5 years.
I’ve always tried to be a good friend, and a loyal person. I’ve spent hours listening to problems, giving advice and keeping people company. But none of those people can actually be bothered to send me a text - unless they want something of course!
I’ve had enough of always being the one that has to send the first text - to get a short conversation, and then be ignored for weeks on end until I send the first text again. I’ve had enough of only ever been contacted when someone wants some information or gossip out of me, wants to rant, bitch and moan or ask for advice.
And I bet when I go home these people want to pretend that they missed me and that it’s ‘been too long’ - it wouldn’t have been too long if you had’ve kept your promises to come and see me, or at least the one to keep in touch!!
So seeing as these people show me no loyalty, they shall get none in return. I’m bored of being nice and listening to everyone’s shit when they wouldn’t even bother to reply if it was the other way round! The only people who are getting my loyalty are my housemates - who genuinely treat me like their family, even though we’ve known each other for 8 months - and the three people who actually phone me for a chat, drop me a text more than once a month, and actually tell me they can’t wait to see me while I’m down here - not when I’ve already come back and ‘it’s been too long’.
I don’t need your drama, I don’t need your bullshit, and I certainly don’t need your fake friendship. You can kiss goodbye to my loyalty, my trust in you, my effort towards our relationship, and my ability to ACTUALLY GIVE A FUCK.
