I find it hard to believe that I’ve been living in this city for three months because I literally have no idea where the time has gone.
Take this blog for example-
I used to be an organised person, and for me last year at school was absolutely hectic, I had so much going on and I thought that it could not get busier. People used to say to me “I bet you’re looking forward to this year finishing” and “At least now you’ll be set up for Uni”. First things first, learning to manage my time before I started Uni was definitely a good thing but it took me a few weeks to get used to everything. Trust me they aren’t wrong when they say you don’t know how to study until you get to Uni…
Unfortunately I seemed to not realise I had a blog due (sorry team!!)
I blame it on the lack of sleep which is the thing I miss the most about pre uni life (maybe equal with the food and beach). Last week the lack of sleep was really taking its toll and despite the fact that I set literally 10 alarms every morning (not very helpful for my 8am lectures)…
Yesterday was the annual Inter Residential football competition which is basically a day where all the different Uni halls compete against one another playing the worlds beautiful game.
We have been training for a couple weeks and we were all gearing up to beat our typical rivals- O’Rourke. We were out to seek revenge for the (somewhat biased) debating finals and to bring the title home to Uni Hall for the first time.
We won all of our first games without conceding any goals, but the final came down to an intense penalty shootout which for me in a weird way I find more exciting than a normal final, I always have liked the intensity, and passion that everybody has watching a penalty shootout. For me it makes the win just that little bit sweeter and after a day of mud, sweat and tears (of joy of course) we came out as the winners for 2016.
All in all it was a day to remember. The atmosphere was great with supporters from all sides with chants, costumes, banners and face paint. It was so much fun to be a part of not only the games and trainings but to be a part of University Hall and see something like football bring us all together
