Has it really been a MONTH!?!


I really can't believe that yesterday marked ONE month since moving to Chichester! It's honestly crazy and it's beginning to go really quickly now I've got into the swing of things and settling into a routine. I've got myself into more Ensemble type things within the music department to get those Ensembles stamps. Had my first rehearsal of my ensemble group and my first piano lesson (which went much better than expected). I've had two more flute lessons and my first little assessment paper in Musical Grammar. 

I've found the big Tescos which has dramatically reduced my weekly shop price (I'm extremely happy about this). It is a fair walk away from where I'm living though and you have to cross the busiest road where there is no bridge, but it's really nice to walk that distance and it's incredibly worthwhile. Gets me out for a little while anyway! It's nice to wander around and the clearance shelves have become my best friend!! Oh and I'm really enjoying cooking - I don't feel that I'm eating as a student as such, because I don't own any tins of baked beans nor have I been eating pot noodles!!

In the last week, I have booked my tickets to go home on Friday! I am so excited to go home - other than going to Croydon to see my Mum, I haven't actually left Chichester! I am really looking forward to being able to drive again, I miss it a lot. I'm not despising the walking, but it does tend to take a rather long time to get from A to B. At least it's keeping me healthy, of course!  I hope I'll remember how to drive!! Of course I'm excited about seeing my family but I want to see my bed more than anything!!

I have also gone to my second concert, this time getting a red stamp! It was a nice way to end a week, it lifted my mood and was really inspiring. Ensemble Concertante gave the performance, a Clarinet Quartet accompanied by an amazing pianist. They played a mixture of traditional music and modern stuff. Although I am not a clarinettist in the slightest, it was still really inspiring to see such wonderful musicians play and the pianist was incredible, making me want to practise to get as good. Because right now my reaction is this: 

In other news, we are getting WIFI installed in our block next week during reading week! I can't tell you how happy this makes everyone! (It's quite sad how much we all rely on the internet and things like WIFI to get us through!)
