October 10, 2007
IT HAS REALLY been a while since I posted my last entry on the Scribbles blog. It was some weeks ago, when I was still celebrating holidays at home in the Netherlands, in many ways and somewhat paradoxically unsure of what to expect of Warwick campus when I would come back. I wanted to get over and done with it, do well in my modules and generally try to take it easy.
Into the second week of term, these objectives are still with me. With just the difference of the life factor intervening, the “gracia ex machina” as I once wrote it up in a poem. There’s objectives and there’s Warwick life anno autumn 2007. Not that they’re incompatible but I guess you can’t plan everything.
So now there’s my campus flat and new flatmates which I’m really happy with. There’s meals we cook and eat together every day. There’s the 120 pages of reading for just one module which I should read within a week. There’s dissertation obligations of reading and independent thinking and planning your own day. There’s climbing and others sports that I recently picked up. There’s my so far positively successful attempt at staying relaxed.
And there’s another 28,5 weeks of term time to tie a few knots together. Nothing new really.
