Scream Above the Sounds
Tomorrow Is The First Day Of The Rest Of My Life
Well, it's finally here. Tomorrow I start my induction for my college. My body clock is still a bit messed up. I should be getting ready to wind down and sleep soon but I'm wide awake, Bon Jovi on full volume as I type this entry. I am really excited but super nervous. I've never been more determined to go out and achieve something. I just want to show my worth and prove that I can do whatever I want to do. I've said I'll do it, and I will. Watch me.
Tomorrow isn't too intense. I received an e-mail today and it said that the induction is due to go on from 9:30am-2:30pm which I'm pretty happy with. It's said that we'll meet our tutors, be "introduced to college life" and finally receive our timetable. I really hope I don't have to study on Friday's. That's going to be a problem. Studying in the day and then working a night shift...I'm not even going to entertain the thought of that. That would be rough.
I doubt I'll sleep much tonight. I feel anxious. I know I'll be fine when I get there but it's just the build up to it, you know? My best friends wife is also having her induction at the college tomorrow too. She's doing a completely different course but she's in from 9am-4pm so she's offered to give me a lift to the college, which is really nice of her. It'll be great to see her too, it's been a while. I wonder if I'll make any friends whilst I'm on this course. One of my friends has joked that maybe I'll meet the love of my life at the college. Can't see that happening. The thought doesn't remotely interest me. I doubt I'll even talk to anybody. I jokingly replied that I have taken a vow of celibacy and linked the Elvis Costello & Burt Bacharach song from Austin Powers 2, "I'll Never Fall In Love Again". She laughed and said "As if".
I'm meeting up with her after I finish college tomorrow. I haven't seen her for a while and she's had a pretty rough time lately, so I figured we'd go out and get drunk. Tomorrow is the only day that I'm actually in the college this week, so I've still got a bit of freedom. Until I'm back on the grind for work on the weekend anyway. The e-mail said that we only had to come in for our Induction on Tuesday this week and then depending on which group we are allocated to, we'll know when we're back in next. I hope the timetable is okay.
Wish me luck,
