I feel like I am always starting off a blog post with apologizing for not posting in a while, so I won’t break the trend now. I’m sorry that it’s taken me almost two weeks to update my blog, but these past two weeks have seriously taken a hold of me and I’ve been struggling to keep my head above the water. I’ve been having so much fun immersing myself into the culture here that I totally lost track of time. But, here we go. I’m going to update you on my doings since March 3rd…
March 3rd: Tuesdays are quite possibly my most lazy of days. I don’t have class until 3:15 in the afternoon, a bunch of us normally go out Monday nights so we don’t get in until 1:30 or 2:00 in the morning, then I catch up on sleep. This Tuesday was no different. I got up, ate lunch, went to class, then spent the rest of the day dilly-dallying around the flat until bible study that evening. Paul, our bible study leader was unable to make it that night, so Stuart was voted to lead us in our discussion of the Word. Stu did an awesome job and there was some good discussion, not to mention Stu also brought us some of the most amazing double chocolate cookies. Delicious. After b.stud, I called it a night and headed back to the flat for some rest and relaxation.
March 4th: I normally have class from 9:15 AM until 1:15 PM on Wednesday, but this particular Wednesday was a reading week for the sociology department. A reading week means that classes are canceled for the week and students are suppose to use this week to catch up on reading. So needlessly to say, I did not have class Wednesday, instead there was a conference for undergraduate students put on by the Institution for High Education (?) about globalization. We were encouraged to attend, so Kelsey, Amanda, Bethany and I all went. I’m pretty sure we all went because there was a free lunch of chicken tenders, sausage rolls, and some of the most delicious desserts ever created. We left at tea break because the conference was quite boring. Some of the research presented was interesting, especially the bit about the English language taking over the Nordic Lands, and trying to find ways to prevent that from happening. That night, we headed over to iCafe, like every other Wednesday night. It was quite a cool night because I was able to chat with some people that I haven’t had the opportunity to meet before. I had met Aaron (Big A) a couple of times before, but had never really had the chance to get to know him. We headed back to Uni around 10 PM or so, and I called it a night. I had class at 9:15 the next morning.
