So, as we approach December, a somewhat less festive prospect lies underneath the tinsel and mince pies: End of term exams. Now, I honestly think its a good thing that we have exams, but it still feels a bit daunting. Therefore, as the title suggests, I have started revision in full force! Well, probably not full force – Let’s say a steady increase in force with respect to time. On the bright side, we just started a project in which we design and build a miniature hovercraft, which we test against everyone else’s at the end of the year. Let battle commence!
Also, I made the great mistake of discovering the tempting glories of the grilled cheese sandwich. After having the delicious little beauties for 3 nights straight, I decided enough is enough, and made what I consider to be, by student standards, a work of art: home made tortilla chips, salad, chips and soy steak strips. It was the best meal I have had since my Flatmates and I decided to make a roast dinner!
This week, Gaming Society had a social at Nandos. I really like Nandos, don’t get me wrong, but for a student, it is very, very, very, very costly. Then again, I think that might just be because I keep on getting a large chicken burger and 2 sides. I currently have a long game of Civilisation V running with two friends at gaming society. Sadly, I am losing catastrophically.
I haven’t had too much time to practice my Accordion. However, whenever I can, I am slowly trying to work out how to play a few decent Christmas carols, just in case the festive mood reaches an all-time high before the terms end.
Anyway, a brief summary: A lot of work, decent food, not so decent gaming, and festive cheer for one and all!
If you have any questions about me, my course, or Imperial life in general, please feel free to post a comment, and I will do my best to respond as honestly as I can in my next blog post!
