Happy New Year, everyone. Yes, it’s 2012 and the start of a new term and it’s not easy getting back into the swing of things after the long break. But to be honest, although I really enjoyed the Christmas holidays, it‘s good to be back.

Having a lie in bed is great, but I need some sort of structure to my day. The college day gives that structure but with the bonus that I’m never quite sure who I am going to meet and what new situations I will encounter.

I wonder if you come to college with that same sense of anticipation? Do you come expecting to be surprised?

Well it all may seem like routine, but look back and you will be surprised at just how much more you have learnt and how many more people you know since this time last year. Keep this in mind and be encouraged by it, and if you are feeling really despondent then why not surprise yourself and come and chat to that new person in Student Services…..the chaplain!
