Just moved into College yesterday. I now have access to internet, catering, IT support, tutorials and my own room. I am very grateful for all the support provided and also very excited to get into everything.
I have kept my room very simple, only bringing the essential items that I need. The reasons for this are to allow me the space to think and focus on my priorities rather than wading through junk all day long. I find clutter very tiring, very quickly, no matter how pretty it was originally. Also it means that I don't have to worry about things been stolen or looking after a vast quantity of possesions. I feel very refreshed!!!
I have even left my walls blank rather than plastering them with pictures, to allow myself time and space to think and be. I still have my vision board up but that is a small space.
I am journalling daily and focusing on my goals and objectives rather than just floating along. There are so many opportunities at college and being able to manage and structure myself to all for maximum benifit is going to be my challenge. Attending University from College feels much nicer than when i came from home. I feel part of the community and accepted rather than just an outsider visiting the lonely busy campus. Odd, same place, different perspective, radical new experiences.
