First Week of Term

Time October 8th, 2013 in College Study Abroad | 1 Comment by

I would firstly like to start off by saying thank you for those that left me comments on my last post, it filled me with all sorts of giddiness throughout the week.

I am also happy to report that my first week of term went really well.  I am ecstatic to finally take courses that will hopefully guide me to what I would like to study in my Graduate studies especially my Research Methods and Digital Literacy and Language modules.  But enough of my boring courses of study.  In reality, it was much more entertaining to witness how the week treated the rest of my flatmates, particularly the ones studying law, medicine and pharmacy.  Keep in mind this is their first year of Uni, but the poor dears looked like they had been hit with a brick.

Also it should be mentioned that most of us have differing stages of “Freshers Flu” (this is what I get for getting accommodations with mostly First Years).  Don’t get me wrong, I figured the new environment and the non-stop activities for two weeks prior the start of term would inevitably get me a tad under the weather.  BUT seeing as it has been over a year since I even had a cold, it has been REALLY inconvenient.

Alright enough with my whining.  My goal for the coming weeks is to find the right rhythm between Uni and being social/ travelling.  There are a few IFSA-Butler events coming up in a couple weeks so that gives me something to look forward to which is always good.

I hope everyone back at home are doing alright (especially with the political turmoil going on at the moment).  I’ll check-in again soon!
