First week of uni  
It has been my first week at uni. I have survived and made a few friends :)

I didn't get lost and had little trouble finding my classes, by the 3rd day it was old hat. The tricky thing is to get there on time since the campus is smack bang in the middle of the city. Apparently the classes are so big, people who turn up late have to borrow chairs from other rooms.

The main building for my department seems like an all boys school. Literally there are guys EVERYWHERE. Complete change from high school and I like it. It feels really weird that in a class of 35 there are usually about two other girls apart from me. I guess it comes with the territory since I am doing engineering.

But I loved it. Apart from the occasional awkward first few days I managed to make friends on my own without Cez's help. I am pretty proud of myself XD  Actually I wish I could talk with her. It's only fair since she drilled me all the details about her new school.

I am looking forward to O week, meeting people in other departments and joining societies. Hopefully there is a secular/skeptic society.  I think I need to join the Womyn's society just to cope as well.

My birthday is coming up soon and I hope my new friend and I can celebrate together.

At my uni, my faculty (humanities) likes to bug engineering about being such a sausage party, haha.

It is!

But the guys are all really nice and it is so much better than high school already XD

Are you at RMIT?

Glad you're settling in well at uni. Its always incredibly scary starting ANYTHING new!

Yup XD

I have to admit it was pretty scary on orientation day.

Oh gosh, I remember my first day at university. It was definitely daunting, especially since campus is freakin' huge. But you manage to find your way around, and to find people to spend your time with. One of the biggest differences between HS and Uni is that you have class with different people each time. I kinda don't like that. *laughs*

Good luck with it all! :)
