In the summer before Year 13, my family decided to take me university hopping around the UK. We’d go to different cities, stay at a local hotel, attend an open day, explore for a day or two and then move swiftly on to the next. Sometimes we’d visit 3-4 unis back to back – no stops, just songs blasting from the car speakers and my dog jumping up at every red light. I felt like a traveller (minus the caravan).
Back then I had no clue what I was going to do. I’d always wanted to study medicine, but I just wasn’t sure if I was passionate enough to dedicate 5-6 years of my life to one subject.
The Spring Term lasted from the 11th of January to the 23rd of March, which fell on a Wednesday. This was a bit odd, as I would have expected the term to end on Friday, but apparently Easter came early this year.
On that note, happy belated Easter! I hope you spent some quality time with your family and loved ones, and that your celebrations for the resurrection of Jesus Christ were lovely.
As for me, I spent Easter with my family. I am very glad to have come back home after 6 months. If you don’t know, my home is Sint Maarten, a beautiful, tiny island in the Caribbean.
On the 18th of January of this new year, the Bioengineering society organized a celebratory event with free drinks, free snacks & karaoke!
The celebration was for those students whose exams are almost finished. However, for first years (like me), we didn’t have many exams in the beginning of the new term. But we did have several coursework to do over the break.
The drinks and snacks were simple – fruit juice, soda, chips, cheese and crackers. But what made everyone’s night, at least for me, was the karaoke.
This was my first karaoke event, and I was self-conscious at first because after hearing recordings of myself, I believe that my voice is not one for music.
Happy new year! And merry belated Christmas!
I hope you had a great time with your friends and family, wherever you are.
It’s just been a few days since the start of the new year and I’m excited to continue my studies here in the Spring term.
But what happened in the Autumn term?
Well, for one thing, I became an Imperial student blogger, which I’m really amped to be. I know I haven’t written as often as the other bloggers (do check their blogs out – they’re great!), but I’ve been busy.
I’m not lying. Seriously…
Alright. To be honest, I could have made some time to write a post or two.
