Back to Sheffield Hallam University

Yes, I'm back at Uni! I'm a student again!

I haven't left Sheffield, I've just gone back to study at Sheffield Hallam to study a Masters degree in IT to improve my all round IT skills, and hopefully push my career on. I'm really looking forward to learning some tech stuff that's out of my comfort zone. I'm also going to enjoy the student lifestyle again.

To save money, I've moved in with a few friends into some of the best student accommodation Sheffield has to offer. We could have got some cheaper student housing, but I've got some money squirreled away and thought I'd like a decent student flat close to Sheffield City Center and Ecclesall Rd. We are also a short work from the ever improving Broomhall area of Sheffield and one of my favourite Sheffield pubs, the Washington.

I'm looking forward to a great year out of the rat race and studying hard. Some of the best years of my life were being a student, and so I'm really pleased I can do this.

The next weeks sees lectures on Big Data, new types of databases (yes, I know I'm a geek!) and some business type stuff I haven't a clue about. I'm also off to two student parties, once in Crooksemoor and one in Broomhill. I'm also making use of the extra free time I have now as a student to visit an exhibition in Sheffield City Center.

I'm going to try and be better with my blogging. I'm sitting in my lovely student accommodation right now after getting home from university earlier than I would do if I were working in the office still and chilling out before a trip to the pub. I’m even going to squeeze in watching the Simpsons.

I love being a Sheffield student again!
