First of all, I hope you all had a great start of the new year! My NYE celebration was magnificent, the idea of having to study on the day afterwards a bit less though.. Anyway, on the 4th of January I had to leave the lovely Netherlands again to go back to London for a final weekend of studying before the exams. After that one weekend, of which you will probably spend half talking to class mates on the phone about how crazy much work you have done and/or still need to do, it is time for the exams… The first day can be terrifying, since you don’t know what to expect, luckily my best friend from Amsterdam sent me lucky socks (see photo), hahaha!
Just a short post to wish you all a happy Christmas from Amsterdam. I hope that you all have had a wonderful Christmas eve; unfortunately, we had no snow here on Christmas eve, just rain.. Anyway, if you are applying for Imperial, be prepared that your Christmas break will be filled with studying. Seriously. Studying is what you will do during your break. Of course you’ll have (to make) time to meet up with some friends and see your family etcetera, but don’t expect to be chilling next to the Christmas tree and not think of your course work at all, haha!
- As you can probably guess from the title above, my flight from to London did not go as smooth as planned. After arriving at the airport, I spotted several flight delay notifications on the screens. At first, only the flight prior to mine was delayed, which made me laugh silently at the people on that flight, since my flight would now probably leave before their flight. But, of course, karma must have heard this silent laughter and in the end my flight was delayed for two hours, due to weather circumstances in London (which is very comforting thought if you don’t like rain, ahem…).
