Today, I officially matriculated to be a member of the University of St Andrews. What does that mean exactly? I filled out a lot of information online, finished paying my fees, completed a web-class on plagiarism, signed a pledge, and just like that...I'm a member of the St Andrews student body. Of course, there are a few more things I have to do once I arrive on campus to be fully matriculated, but it's still a big step.
Last month, I received my residence hall placement for the spring. To be completely honest, I didn't get the dorm that I wanted by a long-shot. But I'm beginning to look forward to living there nonetheless, even if it is a farther walk from the center of town than I wanted. I'll have my own bedroom AND bathroom (honestly, I'm going to be quite spoiled), which will be fantastic especially for filming vlogs. I will share a kitchen with 9-ish other people on my hall, where I will cook all of my meals. If you have any recipes that are easy to make with few ingredients (particularly vegetarian ones), PLEASE send them my way!
Now that I think about it, it's going to be very similar to my dorm situation at the University of Sussex this past summer, which I adored. (I almost cried when I left it).
