One semester gone

In the space of a blink, it is officially the last day of my first semester. There’s a bustle of activity around the campus as everyone is leaving for their long drive home and the snow is fast falling. Christmas is just around the corner… and what a relief. Time to put down my study books (/bury them/burn them/throw them at someone) and relax.

Not only was today the end of lectures and seminars until January, it also marked the day of finding out my first assignment result. I am very proud to say…

(drum roll)…

I got 70%! A 1st in my first assignment. So I can really finish on a high note!

I have my fingers and toes crossed that the next four assignments to write for January will follow the same pattern.

And last but certainly not least… 8 days until Christmas!

Tis the season to be jolly

I am being periodically stalked by jingling, catchy, cheery Christmas songs and my breakfast has consisted of advent calendar chocolate for the last 8 days… Shopping in Liverpool is like voluntarily participating in a stampede… Every time it rains I sprint to my window to check if it’s snow…

Yes, you can tell it’s close to Christmas.

There’s a new festive feeling spreading around the whole campus and the end of our first semester is fast approaching. With four more assignments due in for January, hopefully I can finish them before I go home for┬áChristmas in 11 days. Until then, I’ll write as much as I can, fit as much Christmas shopping in as possible and start packing to go home for a long, lovely 3 weeks.

Ho ho ho… 16 days, 4 hours, 55 minutes and 31 seconds ’til Christmas!
