Re: •~º~º~Welcome to Vikaland~º~º~ • - Vikalume 2.

SOS Guys! I'm moving on Sunday for school. It'll be a room in a house with a desk and a bed only. Anyway, it's my first time away from family so I'm pretty unsure of what I'll need and my sister is taking me out shopping tonight to buy stuff that I need. Right now all I can think of are bedsheets. Does anyone here have any experience and can advice me on what I need to get?!

Thanks!

Oy, I can't believe towels never even entered my mind. That would have been a disaster. Thanks so much!

You're welcome. Other than that mainly your personal things and the school stuff I'd say.

So, I'm finally in my new place. Actually, I'm feeling quite and

On the bright side, I think I brought everything I need!

What's everyone else up to?

I moved away from home a year ago and I'm still not used to being away because I'm really close with my family, especially my sister. It's really hard to believe that I haven't seen my parents in a year.

Wow that's tough. I'm really close with my family as well but my parents don't live far from me so we see each other quite often.

Are you only just starting Uni Bluestorm? Living away from your family & friends will take time to get used to, but once you've got to know a lot of new people and made some new friends you'l be fine

Well, I'm gonna sound like such a baby but I'm actually 22 and finished university just this June. I lived at home though since my school was pretty near. Although when I say home, I mean just me and my sister (my parents are back in my home country). This is my first time where I have a bit of a long way to travel to see even my sister and to be completely solo so I'm just a bit apprehensive.

Thanks for the words of encouragement allrounder and everyone else! It's making me feel a lot better.

Ah right, when you said school I thought you meant you were moving to start uni Did you and your sister settle very quickly after moving away from your parents to begin with? Where about's are you from originally?

Moving away from home for university is weird at first but it's definitiely worth it in the long run. Are you doing a postgrad degree bluestorm?

Re: •~º~º~Welcome to Vikaland~º~º~ • - Vikalume 2.

I'm from the Philippines. I moved to Canada for school five years ago along with my sister.

Yeah, I'm in a postgrad program. Not master's though. It's a one year thing with an internship/co-op at the end which I need to boost my work credentials.

The bad thing is I'm such a homebody so the whole "dorm" life really isn't for me. I don't party much anyway, haha.

Hey, cool. I hope you like her and she's nice though.

Life here in Canada is a gazillion times better as you guys can probably imagine.
