Looks like I owe a couple of posts, guys… don’t worry I’ll catch up!
It’s now WEEK 4 of classes here! I’ve never mapped out my semester like this before, but professors here organize class by weeks. So instead of using specific dates, they’ll list the readings for “week 3” or schedule a test for the “week 4 tutorial.” It’s a cool system of thinking – it’s easier to remember weeks than days. But it’s quite unsettling to feel like I’m still getting the hang of things and know that I’m almost a third of the way through the semester.
In this first third of my classes there’s been lots of fun little things that make me smile, outside of the big adventures everyone hears about, that make life a bit unique over here. I thought I’d share the ones I was able to capture so far.
And below are some videos of little moments that made me smile, too. A game of “Zorb Soccer,” some guys playing tennis outside my room in the hallway (I heard a mysterious “thump” every couple of seconds against my door and decided to investigate through my peephole), and some IFSA-Butler friends playing an intense game of ERS.
