Enro,llment was fine.
I was really nervous and barely spoke to anyone but we got our timetables and the course plan and honestly I'm so excited. The school and its tutors really encourage you to interview your favorite bands and they actually help making it happen. Despite me barely speaking to anyone, I'm pretty excited.
After enrollment, I met up with the guys. The guys meaning my three roommates who are now my best friends. We were still waiting for the italian girl's payment, and then we would be good to go..
But she went completely radio silent. Jay had been in contact with herself, her mom and dad and now neither of them were picking up their phones or answering their emails. Which meant we might have had to stay another night at a hotel, which of course, none of us wanted.
All of us called our parents for advice. I even offered to pay the goddamn £1400 (which is about 15 000 swedish kronor), since I was so desperate to move in.
Right when I hung up on my personal adviser, that being my mother, Jay's phone was ringing and a smile painted his face..
We stayed an hour after closing time, just getting everything sorted. Once the payment had gone through and everything was done.... I cannot even explain to you how much relief I felt.
We all hugged and I was close to fucking cry since it's been SUCH A LONG AND STRESSFUL PROCESS and it was FINALLY COMPLETE..
The one good positive thing out of all this is that we agreed on that this whole stressful experience had brought us closer together as a group. We got through this.. Now we can go through anything.
We signed the last documents, apologized to Jay for making him stay in so late, Got the keys and then just got the fuck out of there. I picked up my luggage at the hotel, and I will admit, it was a pretty good feeling to get in to a taxi and say
"10a Cambridge Grove, please".
I was finally moving in.
And guys, the place is great. There's a loud ticking sound coming from wherever on the ground bedroom, one out of four drawers in the kitchen are actually able to be opened (two of them are blocked, one is literally fake and only for show). There was still some old water in the water boilers from god knows how long ago and the carpet looks pretty shit, But this is our home now. And we all agree of that it's our favorite place to be.
(we even got free wifi which was left here by the previous tennants. It's not a part of our contract, therefore we are not paying for it, so shh don't tell Jay)
I promise to take some better pictures tomorrow cause it'll be bright and shit, but this has literally been the longest day of my life so I just wanna go to sleep. Like we were having dinner (after we went grocery shopping and heated a frozen pizza) (dude our generation takes so much for granted. Like how you're actually supposed to BUY shit like cutlery, toilet paper, soap, frying pans... We're adulting) and we were just so fascinated by the fact that we only met this morning. It literally feels like a week ago.
We sat around the table having dinner, very domestic, and I think we talked for five hours straight? It started of with where the Keep Calm memes originated from,, then politics, gay marriage, opinions about transgender people until it got so deep we decided to just go to bed. Which is where I'm at now. Amazing
In all fariness though, NGB Lettings, guys, What an amazing crew of people.
If you're ever moving to Brighton, use them. We owe them so much..
My new roommates are such amazing people. I couldn't have asked for a better group. We're the superroommates.
