New week, new chance

I finally have collected all necessary signatures of the professors and lecturers of the modules I want to attend. That process took me about a week now… As annoying it might be to run from office to office, it also has its good sides: Most profs take their time to get to know their students. They are (or at least pretend to be) interested and friendly. That really impressed me! OK, there are also nice profs in Germany, but compared to here, the ratio (nice prof to ***hole) is definitely worse…
Besides having completed my examination registration form, I had another course today (my third one), signed up for the sports union (quite expensive though), was running in the morning (or 'jogging', only for 20mins on my usual tour), had a delicious meal (rice, chicken and a sauce with an unrememberable name from Tesco) and did nothing for my courses… However, that WILL CHANGE! At least, it will have to change.

Btw: I had a nice weekend – Silvi was here and I could show her our cool campus. Yesterday, we visited the chaplaincy and joined the lunch afterwards. I liked both.

Short week review

First week of term is over… So what did I learn in the past few days?

  • They don't take it too seriously here: Although term was supposed to start, I only had two lectures. However, most of my relaxing time is over now, I guess… Next week, hard life starts.
  • Lecturers are really nice in England! That was the good side of the annoying task of collecting signatures of nine different profs… they seem to be interested in their students.
  • One can kill time with lots of useless things… and at the end of the day one has not finished the one important task…
  • A kitchen is overloaded when 26 students try to prepare their dinner…
  • A kitchen can be a dirty place at weekends, when cleaners do not have to work
  • Swedish prisons for women could be worse (our student dorm. was designed after one)
  • Swedish jails could be accousticly better isolated.

So far the lessons for this week…
