Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away, now it looks as though they're here to stay, oh I believe in yesterday!

U know what that means right? Yes, you guessed it. I am in fact back in Leeds! But wait.......... it gets better, this time i'm not on my own. The ministry thought it would be cute to send my younger brother to the same city. Hey, i'm not complaining! If anything, I'm glad he's here with me. I can keep an eye on him. Make sure he sorts out things like accommodation, bank accounts, railcards and what not! So I really am glad to have him around.

Living back in dorms was by far the BEST decision I could've made! I don't have to worry about paying bills on time, I don't have to worry about fixing anything in the flat on my expense, I don't have to worry about setting up an internet connection. I can keep going but I'm sure you get the point. And my flatmates........ I love them... I honestly do. We have had the best three weeks of our lives getting to know one another. I feel awful about what I wrote in my previous post. I think I mentioned something about a bunch of blondes pissing the crap outta me with their never-ending drama!! :S Well..... I take it back!

Progressing into my second year has been daunting! I've had sleepless nights already! My timetable is fucked up! I've got lectures from 9-6 almost everyday, but that's not as worrying as the 6 hour practical I have on Mondays! SIX HOURS??????? You gotta be kiddin' me man! Nevertheless, microbiology with immunology is no piggy-back ride so I should've expected this to happen. After all, it IS my second year and I quote "this is the year when everything starts to count towards your final grade."

Anyways, ramadhaan........ Yeah. That's the end of the sentence.

My brother's phone got stolen the other night. He was walking to the city with a friend (A) of his and these two men approached them and demanded that they hand over their phones! One was masked whilst the other had his hoody on. At first, my brother tried to convince them that he didn't have a phone on him when he OBVIOUSLY did! But after several attempts at doing so, he decided to sacrifice his phone rather than his wallet. And so, he handed it over! My brother assumed it was all over so he walked away only to realise that (A) was still being interrogated by the two men. My brother insisted that (A) hand over his phone but the guy refused to!!!! Anyways, to cut a long story short, he handed them the phone and they both (meaning my brother n his friend) made a run for it!

Apparently, after my brother n (A) reported what had happened to the police, they were told that six other people had been mugged in the same way, around the same area, possibly by the same people! How awful is that? I feel sorry for my brother. To have to experience this only a week after his arrival! Poor thing... Anyways, it could've been worse so thank god they're both OK. Besides, if having his phone mugged was what it took for my brother to finally change that piece of crap then I AM GLAD it got mugged!

Other than that, life's been unusually stable for me. There's not much going on at the moment but I better not curse it. Watch how my next post will be based on all the shit that's happened to me after typing this post! Haha.. it'll be quite funny.

If you anticipate for something to go wrong, then it probably will, so keep a positive spirit and try to have fun. Once you do that, you will see how much fun you're having and how content you are with your lifestyle, and that is something you should feel during uni in order to stay sane.

Say no to shit happening :D lol

PS: I am glad you updated.
