It’s been a little bit on the busier side now that I’ve moved into my term-time residence. There’s a bunch of orientations, meeting and such, but I’ve been lucky enough to have had time to move pretty much everything into my room. It’s definitely a lot smaller and older than the temporary accommodation I had at Devonshire. There’s just enough space to breathe but it does feel a bit restrictive. Though I’m assuming this is typical for dorms in the UK (I could be wrong). Inside my room, I’ve got a shelving unit, a closet, a desk, a chair, a set of drawers and a bed. Basic, but it’ll do the job for the semester.
In our flat, we’ve got one bathroom/shower and one kitchen to share with our flatmates. The bathroom isn’t as terrible as I’ve been expecting and the kitchen is definitely a lot dirtier than what I’m used to back at home. My flatmates and I are definitely going to have to do some cleaning before we use it. The kitchen is also the only space we have in our flat that has a table where we can all sit and chat.
And my food/kitchen supplies shelf!
That’s about it for the residence. Cheers!
