Egham once more  
For the first time since I graduated, I am in Egham.
For the first time ever, I will be staying on campus.

Me and Claire are going to see Rick Wakeman at Hampton Court Palace, and the obvious choice of guest accomodation was RHUL. We're staying in what used to be Athlone hall, right above what used to be Times Square. So many memories... Times Square was where I first met the bulk of the anime society. I'm glad it's still there. So many memories, so many memories.

Good afternoon
I'm Feeling: unreal

Is it weird to be back?

I'm not that far from you now, just in the International Building.

It was very weird. Everywhere felt familiar but at the same time foreign. I couldn't really make the mental leap back to being a student and living in Egham. It felt a little like a dream world.

I'm not surprised that you were in the International Building.

Yeah, like a step back in time. It felt similar when we got back from Germany, only then we had to get used to it again...

I'm not in there as much these days to be honest. I camp out in Café Jules sometimes, but no more than that, or popping into my department. I spend a lot of time in my room instead, or just generally outside.

That must have been weird...

If it makes you feel better, I'm there now...

Times Square was awesome. I really miss it. They did fantastic cheese and ham paninis there, the ones they have now are nothing in comparison!

It's odd being back and not being a student isn't it? I was walking around thinking "back in my BA years I would have spotted about 9 people I knew by now, I haven't seen ANYONE that a recogise so far" XD

The Times Square I knew never served food - it was just a private world for us anime people :)

It's crazy odd! I found one person I knew working in the college shop, but that was about it, really. It was a little sad :(
