Yesterday we took Ayden off to live in Melbourne, at the Residence at Monash Uni. The res was a bit confronting to us, such a big change. The room was very basic, and very expensive and everything smelt bad. It's going to be noisy and full of students and it showed its age. His hall houses 202 students. This photo would have been taken from the 12 story residence block that the building looks onto.
I held myself together and thought of all the good things, how hard Ayden had worked and all the people he will meet and that he had actually made it there. That he can walk to classes and that he will have a lot of support close by. That Matt and I had met at uni after all. The uni had organised a lot of fun things for the students to help them settle in and I knew Ayden would be fine. It's going to take me a bit to get used to though.
