I then ended up working on my tshirt for Freshers Week, house wars. There are about fifteen houses that compose Lonsdale's campus, so we all competed against each other. Anyway, the rest of my flatmates (the floor of my house) and I cut up and drew on our tshirts, preparing them for the vandalism at the night's event.
Overall, in each college, there are about 1,000 students, ranging in their years. Freshers week only applies to the first years, so you can probably estimate how many students are coming to the different events.
So we then headed down to first floor of our house and then proceeded to walk over to the campus bar.

We then just spent a lot of time talking about America and England; mainly the former. It was nice to talk to someone about my country when they really respect it! I haven't gotten any bad responses, of course, when I talk about the US, but Tom was really interested and we ended up talking politics for quite some time.
I then got a call from Rhiannon (the fashionable girl whom is almost intimidating) telling me that Matt was looking for me! Unfortunately, Matt does not have a phone, nor do I think that he wants to get one. Therefore, it's basically impossible to get in contact with him, which I find kind of a bummer. Anyway, it was nice to see him! I ended up going out and meeting him back over by the bar (which is right outside of my house) and we hung out for a while before I went to sleep.
Today I ended up going to an early meeting, feeling a bit under the weather, eating a cheeseburger, going to another meeting, going to town, buying bedding then coming back home. I then spent the evening just in my flat with some second year boys, who are extremely funny and really nice. I really enjoyed the fact that I could have a chill out night, rather than going on the town.
Anyway, life is good and I'm having a lovely time!
