Good Morning, world! The last couple of days we have tried to get several things in box. On Tuesday we had to go to school and check if we had paid our deposit on the university fees. Of course we walked to the south part, and was directed to the north part, which we had walked by on our way to the centre. So we decided to walk to the bank which we were closest too. There they told us that we needed copies of our unconditional letter (uncon). While we were in the city we dropped by Orange to get UK sim cards and numbers.
And that was the ONLY thing that went smoothly that day.
After that we walked to the north part of the University and found our way to the Cashiers. While the others paid the fees, and paid what their bank had managed to charge from the amount of money, I learned that I had paid it all. So I was directed back to the south part to the International centre to update my records in the system.
Since the north part is very close to home, we walked home and got the papers the bank requested. On our second time walking to the bank we dropped by the south part of school and got our records updated. When we got to the bank they then told us that the papers weren’t valid, and that they needed the original uncon. As International students we had only gotten the copy per mail. So we walk to the university for the third time and got our letters printed. After that we where hungry and tired of walking, so we went to the supermarket, bought food and went home.
Yesterday, we walked to the international centre at school so the last two could print their letters, and then we tried the bank for the third time. This time it actually worked. But going through the info and papers took tremendous long time per person because the bank worker had to call and get out identity checked, to confirm that our passes was real and that this was not a fraud. So making the accounts took several hours.
So drinking that coffee at Starbucks afterwards was really heaven.
After that we went to the library to print our university boarding pass, which we need for identity checking at the university. And finally, after that I got to do some shopping! I bought a wonderful shirt, tights, drawing stuff and a cute accessorize organizer. Oh my, all this must be so boring of you to read. Lets get started on some pictures I took while we walked to the bank yesterday, so I can show a bit of the area we live in! :)
This is the MX building where the finance department is, it's the part of the university that is closest to our place. On our way to the university we have to walk past the stadium for the local football club. Yes, we live about 10 mins way from this thing. I wonder if we will hear it when they play home matches....! The art & design building of the university. I am wondering if we are going to spend a lot of time here. The building is both iconic and horrifying. The Wanderer, whom I'm not sure whether is a pub or a restaurant. Right by the south part of the university. The main bus street in town. The big ring, containing several banks and shops including Lloyds TSB.
