Okay so I’ve been here a while now – I would say I’m settled in but it’s hard to say “how” settled I really am. I know my way round the campus and I know how to make quick dinners (Crumpets and chocolate oranges are the way forward guys) but I wouldn’t necessarily say I am a pro at uni life. I guess, I’m settled in terms of the system. I know how lectures and tutorials work for instance.
These past few weeks I’ve been trying to catch up with all the work I have to do. It’s a strange endless cycle. By the time you’ve caught up with everything you did two weeks ago, you’re behind on everything you did this week! That just never stops happening.
I keep telling myself that I’ll catch up with the work set. (By the way guys, It’s an unstated fact that mechanical engineers have a lot of work load here – even more than any of the other courses that you could think about – even medics!) It just never happens. Nothing seems to get done. Ever.
So at the end of this week, I guess what I’ve learned is:
1) I am freaking behind on all the work set.
2) That’s never going to change.
3) I’ve got shit loads of tests coming up
4) At the end of the day, I’ve got to accept that and move on.
