It’s over but it’s been a good one.
I’ve had such a great time and made loads of friends. I’ve also had many embarrassing moments. This is my short analysis of term 1.
Best thing I’ve done
This is a difficult one. I would probably say getting really involved in Union democracy but there are loads of things I have done that I am so glad I did.
Worst thing I’ve done
That has to be something to do with being ill. I’m going to say that it was giving freshers flu to everyone in week 2.
Most embarrassing thing I’ve done
One of 3 things here. It has to be either when I managed to fall up a ramp in the Union at the freshers’ fair in week 1, when I was at a conference and ended a speech with “I’m really bad at making speeches so I’m going to shut up now”, or when I fell over on the Piazza drunk after Top B (having only recently sung “Things can only get better” – as in the 1997 New Labour election anthem – at the top of my voice even though I’m a Conservative!).
Favourite/least favourite lecture
I started with such hopes but lost the passion after a few weeks so don’t really have a favourite lecture but analysis wins hands down when it comes to my least favourite lecture.
Societies I’m most involved in
Theres a few of these. Conservatives and craft soc are ones I’m most involved in but I will also add debating, international current affairs, Christian focus and speak. Oh, and Union council if I can count that here.
Furthest I’ve been from campus
That would be London for the anti-top-up fees demo in week 4.
Longest amount of time away from campus
I spent all of week 9 away from campus.
Weirdest thing I’ve asked someone
Probably the one about could we have some sort of majority voting system in Union referenda.
Weirdest thing I’ve been asked
Probably when someone asked me if I was lost and looking for the science department.
So that is how I found term 1. I know that there will be much more happening in term 2.
