Day One also marks the day where you have to step outside of your comfort zone and actually talk to a minimum of 30 new people. These are the people who you will be sharing walls, bathrooms and experiences with so don’t shut yourself away! Making friends was what scared me the most about moving away from home. But just remember everyone is in the same boat and when you forget the persons name you are speaking to for the 5th
time in one conversation, they are super understanding. Now I’m not going to lie to you and say we were friends at first sight and it wasn’t awkward at times but after dinner when we just sat in the common room together, it just clicked and the floor fam was developing. Some of the best fun I have had during O Week was on that first night, and despite what people tend to believe, we didn’t even leave our common room to have that fun.
Side Note for Day One- PLEASE unpack and tidy up your room, when you arrive is the best time to do this, otherwise you will get sidetracked and live in a mess for the rest of the week and everyone will judge you.
