If anyone is ready this and wondering what the experience will be like for them when they start... well obviously experiences vary
Tuesday I came alone to Curtin for the very first time. It has also made me realise that I hate being independent
Like any new student I got lost (I couldn't even find the bus station for 15 minutes -.-) So when I went into the lecture theatre for the Biomed orientation there were freakin a million people in there. So I sat next to a random and sorta made friends with her but god knows if I'll see her again. I'm surprised I got the courage to talk to anyone... and thats when I realised how introverted I was >>
We also had a tour around the campus areas that may be important to us. Made another friend sorta from my course yay! Then we had a sausage sizzle haha.
On Wednesday I went early to Curtin with my bf to get a blood test.
Thursday's orientation was off campus at the OHCWA. When I got there everyone was already there... seated so I stood like a loner, off to the side, playing subway surfer... I am the definition of a wallflower. Everyone seemed to have their cliques already :/ But when we got inside I was lucky to be able to stay in groups (when we split to meet our mentor) with the only 2 people I knew. We also met with the 2nd year students. Basically we got a campus tour from them and they also answered any questions we had. Ah, and also I won't even be attending Curtin uni anymore from 2nd year haha. I don't know if I even will get the chance to go there anymore after this year :S
So... basically I got lost at campus, joined some clubs, made a few friends but still know hardly anyone, bought some books, found out I need to get another one and got a blood test.
Overall orientation was sorta... full on especially with the effing hot weather!
I hope first week won't be too hard on me :/
