Episode 2: I Have A UK Number!
So if you know me well enough, you can ask for it. Or even if you don't know me well enough, but have good reason to expect to in the near future. While most people were having fun trying out the various games today, I was getting a headstart on the more practical stuff. I got myself a UK handphone number, or to be precise, I got Natalie to buy me a SIM card while I was getting my account at NatWest set up, since I'd already got the student status letter yesterday. Decided to go with that bank out of the three available on campus because of all the freebies Chloe kept telling me about, which includes a 16-25 Railcard, really handy for visiting people all over the continent! Basically, I've settled most of the administrative stuff, which is good news. Tonight's entertainment at the marquee was slightly better, and I even managed to get some dancing done with my friends. I've made a couple of new ones, like Adrian, although I don't think I'll really make many until classes start. I'm not the kind of person who can just end up as friends with someone because we met while we were both high on alcohol...
