Tuesday 24th SeptemberA Busy DayToday was a busy day as the title says. I went down to the kitchen to grab some breakfast and as I walked over to my cupboard I noticed heat rising from the stove. Someone had left the hob on, possibly all night. It’s lucky there wasn’t a fire. After breakfast I went shopping and got, among other things, eggs, butter and cheese. Can you believe I forgot the bread and mayonnaise? Dozy me. I then went down to the LRC to get printer credits to print off my picture of John before going to class. We all had to put our pictures up at the front of the classroom and choose the best ones. Oh my Glob, mine was chosen, so happy.We then went for a short break during which I helped John get some printer credits and print off his. Oh my Glob, it’s so amazing. I absolutely love it. He drew me with Princess Bubblegum standing on my shoulder with Marceline floating next to her He also drew my interests, i.e. fishing, fanfiction and forests (The three Fs XD) I
Monday 23rd September 2013Registration DayWoke up to ‘Don’t Sleep in the Subway’ by Petula Clark. I’ve customised my phone’s alarm so that I wake up to a different song each day of the week. That way I won’t get used to any particular song and sleep through it. Anyway, went down to the kitchen for a bite to eat before going down to the LRC (Learning Resource Centre) to get registered. Had to remember to bring my passport and all my papers with me. Once I go registered I got my student card and checked in. I then went on to the FMM (Film, Music and Media Building) to go to my first set of induction activities. This was mostly a talk about the course. We were set an assignment to pair up with someone (I paired up with John) and we had to draw each other in a way that showed each other’s interests and hobbies. So we spent the afternoon in John’s room, drawing away on our graphics tablets. I drew him holding Finn’s gold sword from Adventure Time and an i
Sunday 22nd September 2013First DayWe reached the accommodations around 11am and received a warm welcome from the students who were helping out. I was given my key, a goodie bag and a university hoodie. I’m staying at the Coales hall which means I am in the Hornet House. It’s just like Hogwarts minus the sorting ceremony.I got all my belongings up to my room before having lunch and a coffee with mum and my third cousin, Kate. My room is great; a little Spartan in furnishings but comfortable. I feel at home here to be honest.I said goodbye to mum and Kate. Mum was sad to see me go but happy for me at the same time. I explored the campus for the afternoon and found a lovely little woodland pathway where there are squirrels and rabbits. Squirrels make such a funny noise that I didn’t know they made. O_oI got my dinner in the refectory (pizza and chilli with rice, spicy but yum).I met up with a bunch of the lads in the kitchen that I’d seen earlier. They were Joe, Andy and John.
Someone Who UnderstandsPrincess Bubblegum sat down on her throne with a heavy sigh. It wasn’t like her to feel so down but what Finn had said had brought a lot of thoughts racing to the surface.“PB, you are like a bazillion years old! You're not freaking 19, what the heck?!” He wasn’t far wrong. She’d been this way for as long as she could remember. She didn’t even know how long bubblegum candy people lived. All her family members had died before their time. For a long time she had had to watch people grow old and die. She wanted to talk to someone but, it occurred to her, that it would be insensitive to talk to a mortal about such things.“Is something the matter, your majesty?” asked Peppermint Butler, interrupting her chain of thought.“Oh, nothing, Peppermint,” she replied. Peppermint Butler frowned.“Come now, Princess,” he said, “I’ve known you long enough now to know when you aren’t telling the truth.” His
