I'm done, and have surprisingly little to do, which is nice. I have discovered that if you try to look for somewhere to rent three months in advance... it's not really possible to do so. I do have one lead though, so we shall see how that works out.

The ball was a wholly surreal experience- starting out with a bucks fizz reception, I actually managed through a process of not drinking that much and getting drinks bought for me, to only have to spend about 4 pounds in total, which is pretty good. It wasn't really a ball to be honest, more a festival with tuxes. It featured dodgems (with a half hour queue, which probably was not worth it), candy floss (with a queue of similar length. But it totally was), a ferris wheel (which I didn't go on), and some music of questionable quality, including the Wurzels, who we couldn't hear a single word they were singing. The headline act was Matt Willis, an ex member of busted. We missed him. Damnit!

There was also a casino apparently, but the tables were obscured by the sheer amount of people. 4000 people were apparently in attendance, which is nearly half of the student population of the university of bath, so it was pretty crazy. Regardless of some faults, it was a fun time, possibly because it made no real attempt to be a real ball- such attempts tend to crash and burn when met with 4,000 drunken students, a fair proportion of whom will empty the contents of their stomachs. Repeatedly.

And now I have a relatively empty summer, which is an incredibly pleasent feeling that I haven't quite come to terms with yet. I imagine I shall find some way to fill the time.
