Just moments before settling down to write my weekly post today I rediscovered an old purse that I keep at the bottom of my draw. I like to collect tickets for events and such that I have been too and keep them in this purse for safe keeping. It’s something I’ve been doing for a couple of years now, and obviously right at the front was my most recent purchases – my UEA adventures! I say you could call it my own personal ‘memory box’.
As you may be able to make out above I have tickets to a whole variety of concerts such as Beyonce to far lesser known bands such as Yellow Card. I’ve even got tickets for when I went to see some comedians, including Michael McIntyre and Miranda Hart! These are things that I will never forget about, and will want to remember for the rest of my life. By now you’re probably thinking what does this have to do with UEA? Well I just wanted to show you my ‘addiction’ to attending big events and going to gigs. I’ve always preferred to spend my money on days out than material things. This was therefore a big factor for me when choosing a university.
If you’re like me, and are always looking for something to plan for and look forward to, then UEA can provide you with just that. As I’ve shown in the above picture, these are some of the events I attended where I managed to not lose the ticket to the realm of the LCR floor. I have mentioned them in previous posts, but for those of you who are new to reading I’ll give you a brief idea of what they where.
First was the freshers events.
– Zane Lowe (Radio 1 DJ)
– The Network – A t-shirt party (A MUST for those looking to go out in freshers week!)
– Martin S Taylor – Hypnotist, a very alternative night out and very very funny.
– Bio Winter Ball – A formal dinner I helped to arrange as part of the Biological Sciences Society.
– Example – Need I say anything for this one?!
– LCR events such as the UV rave and The Hogwarts Social which I blogged about recently!
Now these are just a small handful of things going on at campus. I hear there are lots of things going on at the waterfront – UEA’s club in the city. So keep an eye out if/when you’re here, and enjoy yourselves!
