It's crazy how everyone I used to get along with at school is already moving on with their lives, I've been saying goodbye and good luck to everyone ever since school ended last year, that it's become the norm. Now that it's actually my turn it feels surreal, but just to remind myself it's all real I've decided to write about my first two weeks here.
PS: Varsity...please be good to me
As many of you already know, this year I decided to go to Rhodes University. I won't lie, at first I was really anxious and scared as I really didn't know what to expect. Last year, all I really knew about Rhodes was that it was in Grahamstown; a really small town in the "middle of no where" but honestly any pessimistic vibes I had of Rhodes deeply changed when I entered the town for the second time, only this time for a more permanent stay.
The drive going to Rhodes was definitely one of my favorite road trips. From the new places i ended up going and discovering, to the bonding experience with my parents. If anyone is going into the Eastern Cape, I highly suggest they try out 'The Windmill', it's a drive in restaurant, the food is amazing and the service is really good. It's located in East London and it's right by the beach, so many people tend to visit the beach before or after. All in all the trip from Durban to Grahamstown was really amazing.
I'm actually very lucky that even though I'm all the way in Grahamstown I have friends here from school like Megan and Narishka who have made my time so far a breeze, the people at Rhodes are also really friendly so no one makes you feel out of place. The weather here is however quite bipolar...one minute it will be cold and the next minute you're rushing back to your Res to go and change clothes.
I'll be studying a BA in Psychology and so far it's been really nice. From the lecturers, to the people in the class it's all been really good. Grahamstown is quite small so everything is basically a walking distance away, so for those people who love exercising or just taking a walk it's something you'll enjoy.(If the weather is on your side)
All in all i can't really complain because Rhodes has really been a great experience for me. I hope it will continue to be as great as it has been, and that through it all I'll really gain lots of experience and learn, in due time, to call it home.
