Uni must have started

University must have started. The crowds of students hanging around both Melbourne Uni as well as RMIT in the city is enough to drive me away to spend the week in the country.

Yesterday, students from Melbourne Uni formed a long human chain and completely stopped traffic at the huge round-about at the top end of Elizabeth street. Luckily I saw them early enough to avoid the roundabout and not get caught. Traffic was at a standstill until they moved off, as in, the entire human chain left the road and area. I hope it only happens once a year and not once per semester!

Dining in Lygon street has also became more crowded with the return of the students staying in Colleges. We saw large groups of students, many with cards hanging around their necks with their names written on it, course they are doing etc. Glad I never had to go through that torture.

Enjoying my coffee in QV, I saw lots of students, with their parents in tow, stocking up on essentials; such as toilet paper, instant noodles, clothes drying stand, bread and biscuits. Do people remember those days? First time living away from home? Learning how to cook, maybe? Gosh, I feel so old!

    Ah, actually, it sounds like it’s Student Orientation time Corinna.

    That’s when the parents of the new uni students worry too much about their “kids”… Worry about whether their precious young will cope in the new environment, out all by themselves…
