Foamy Fun!

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

So after my Afternoon Tea I headed to meet up with my flatmates from last year at The Forge to prepare for the YOLO Foam Party at Union. It was lovely to see them all again, but strange visiting and not having my own room and seeing their new flat mates! I really would recommend anyone who can to have a year living in Halls of Residence it is such a good experience, especially if you have never left home before! Failing that you are able to visit friends at their Halls of Residence and stay over, I  just went to the Reception and signed myself in. The Forge also let visitors park for free on the grounds which gave me peace of mind as they have CCTV and 24 hour security so I didn’t have to worry about abandoning my new car anywhere!

Needless to say the Foam Party was hugely popular, the queue just to get in was out of the door and backed up right down the street and inside the place was packed! I managed to catch this video of the foam party which shows how busy it was..

I ended up leaving at around 2am when I was all danced out and my voice hurt from singing, plus I wanted to get a good sleep ready for my Induction for 2nd year the next day. Cant wait to see all of my classmates again 🙂
