Blair Arnold a first year journalism student at the University of Wollongong reflects on his first weeks of university life after the transition from high school. As Blair enters the silent atmosphere of the library he begins to reflect about the changes and challenges he has overcome. He’s see a new world, somewhat distorted and although different he feels a subtle sense of excitement whilst being riddled with nerves at the same time. Although Blair thought we had been “thrown in the deep end” by cracking a series of lame jokes we broke down the ice. Leading to this photograph, which can be seen as a symbol of our initial friendship.
