Last blog from Clarence Dock

Yes, the time really has come, this is my last ever post from Clarence Dock in Leeds. It’s been an interesting 6 months as a number of blog postings have made clear, but overall going into halls for the latter half of this year is something I’m very glad I did. I never thought I would find myself back in halls of any description but it has really reinforced the fact that halls are a great introduction to uni. If you get put in a block where you make good friends it gives you a kick start into social circles, if not then it inspires you to go out more and meet new people in different settings.

I’ve certainly felt very liberated as an individual while being here and to coin a well worn phrase, I’ve been able to find myself a bit more. Things like enjoying more live music, staying out all night, chatting to random people and even simple nights in reading interesting books in an uninterrupted environment has all made it a positive personal experience. I’m looking forward to going back into a more familiar house setting though, after all its far too long since I’ve had a good cheese and wine evening and with an open, spacious kitchen and comfortable lounge my new place is completely fit for purpose 🙂

    Well, I wouldn’t call it anywhere near approaching spacious I’m afraid, but I will do my best with the pics once I find my cam amongst the boxes…. at least I have my computers running 😉
