It's difficult to really see in webcam photos, but I've re-dyed my hair! Its more ginger-ish and now all my hair is one colour :')

Also, my friend said I should write about this next thing: last week, I accidentally got my myself a boyfriend. Not many people can do that, haha. It was this boy in my philosophy class. I don't want to repeat all the details because I'm so embarrassed by it all, but now this boy won't leave me alone. I 'broke up' with him very soon after he 'asked me out'. I didn't even give it a day. Now he constantly texts me and tries to find ways to hang out with me - for the past week, he kept sending me these stupid soppy text messages. It will have a lot of humour value later, but right now, I'm just getting irritated. He just phoned me half an hour ago, in fact (I didn't answer, hahah). I don't understand how some boys just don't know when to stop.

It's so cold today, so straight after my morning lesson (German) I went and bought myself a cup of coffee. I think it's actually colder in my room than it is outside, which is also why I'm wearing my big stripey sweater. As you might be able to tell, I really like it, haha. 

I have the rest of the day to study now, which I think I'll dedicate entirely to German, as I have a quiz on Wednesday. Every time I tell someone I'm studying German, they look at me like I'm mad and go on to tell me that its a difficult language. I don't find it that difficult though - so far, at least. In fact, I find it easier than French. Even if it does turn out to be really confusing and difficult, I'm not giving up on it. 

Oh, and I also got this lovely dress on the weekend:

I couldn't get any full-body photos on my webcam, because the lighting goes all shadowy and dark when I step back, so I'll take better photos on my proper camera later. It's basically just a fitted lace dress :)

Outfit of the day, haha. I didn't actually wear this anywhere because I wasn't feeling well and therefore didn't leave my room much. But I like it so much I thought I would show it off and post it on here :)

The skirt is from Forever 21 and I forget where I bought the tights. They're a pinkish-purple in natural light.

Last night was the end of Frosh week, and to finish it off, they took us on a boat cruise. Initially, I probably wouldn't have gone on the cruise because I haven't been feeling well for the past few days - I think I'm getting a cold. But my mum paid extra for the ticket, so I kind of had to ;P 

I'm glad I did though, because it was quite a lot of fun. There weren't many people going, but I found my two lovely English friends, Sarah and Valentina, to go with (the girls in the picture). There was also Jess, one of the Australian girls, but unfortunately she isn't in the picture :(

On another note, judging by the pictures taken last night, I really need to re-dye my hair. I noticed a drastic difference between the top of my hair and the ends of my hair: the top is brunnette, the ends are red/ginger-ish. I don't think its noticeable to other people - one boy in res actually referred to me as a redhead and was surprised when I said the colour is fake, which I never even thought was that deep of a red to start with. The roots blend in quite naturally, but when I think about it, my fringe is an entirely different colour from the rest of my hair. I need to sort this out, but I'm too scared to dye it on my own again because of the bright-orange tragedy that happened last time, and getting it done at the hairdresser is expensive. I don't know what to do D:

I'm loving res a lot more than I thought I would. I've made so many friends, particularly with some of the Australian girls and, of course, the British girls. I'm surprisingly so at ease with everyone already. Naturally, I'm still quiet, but the only change is that I'm not so shy anymore. If I have something to say, I just say it, which I never used to normally do. I don't know where this sudden change came from.

It's still Frosh week, even though classes have started. I've cut up my Frosh shirt (above pictures), so that its all slouchy and off-the-shoulder. I cropped it as well at the bottom, so now it doesn't swamp me whenever I put it on ;D

I'm getting a bit of a cold though, which is so very typical. That might be due to a combination of not eating properly and staying up most of the night. I've probably lost weight too, but I'm not complaining on that one, ha. I just don't know what to eat, besides salad, when everything on campus is fast food. And I can't get much sleep either, no matter how early I go to bed, because there will always be other people awake and making loads of noise in the corridor - slamming doors and whatnot. So, those are the only reasons I would consider going home for the weekend. 

As for classes, German is my favourite so far. I've always loved that language and wanted to learn it; I want to learn loads of languages, actually. I want to learn Dutch next, and also master French, because I can't speak that as well as I can read it. My other classes are Studies in Literature, Professional Writing, Intertextualities (a fancy term for English), and Ethics. I also want to take up ballet again. There's a recreational centre on campus that offers classes for about $90, so I've packed my ballet shoes and dance kit. 

I might go shopping this weekend, because I think my pay cheque goes in tomorrow (it's actually nearly midnight now, so I reckon I'll wait up a bit longer to check my bank balance online and see if anything changes, haha). I'm dying to have a look around all these vintage shops my friend Rose was telling me about - apparently its like Camden Market, so that's got me all excited. 

But anyway, all-in-all, its fantastic here :)

I just moved into residence yesterday and this is my room! It's very cluttered and untidy, but I'm quite happy with it so far. I want to buy some fairy lights to tack along the shelves, and I still need to put up some more pictures.

One thing I don't like about res is that the toilets and showers are unisex. Quite frankly, I'm not fond of taking a shower in a cubicle next to some naked guy. I don't see why we can't have separate showers and toilets. I might get over it in a while, but I never go into the bathroom until I'm sure there are no boys in there ;P

Also, there are at least three other British people on my floor - two girls and one boy. I haven't spoken to them properly yet, but I will when I get the chance. I think that should be easy, as we already have something in common just by being British :)
