Tom's University Update (Week 5)
Blimey, another week has passed in the name of Warwick engineering, and what a week it has been!
The scout camp at the weekend was excellent fun, Rifle, Climbing, Campfire Songs, Backwoods Cooking, Orienteering, Ultimate Frisbee, Quick Cricket, Walks near a nice lake, Connect 4 Tournament (I won that), Playstation 2 eyeToy, and Dancemat games, cooking and washing up, and avoiding the cubs camped on the other side of the field. It was good fun, indeed it was. I'm currently in the process of producing a video for it, based on the pictures people have taken. With all the other things I am doing, this could take a while.
The week started off as any other would, I was late for a 9am lecture. I was also on campus until 7pm. That was a long day. By tuesday I had fallen ill, standing up gave a splitting headache, so I missed all four lectures. I spent the evening writing a report, and then due to a bad estimate on how long it was supposed to be, and also due to the distraction of messenger, most of the night as well. As a result, Wenesday was a bad day, I had a rotton cough, I slept through archery, and I went to bed.
For those of you who have encountered health and safety legislation, you will understand the boredom encountered by a 2 hour lecture on different aspects of the act (1974), and why, in case of fire, you are not allowed to use a fire extinguisher. I went to see "Serenity", quite a nice film I thought, and then near the end it was like "Buffy" in space.
As for today, I've been here since 9am, and I've a lecture at 5. After that its the SSAGO social, in a nice place somewhere around here called Leamington, which is not covered by my local map… damn.
anyway, send me your news, your questions, your comments, it's nice to hear from anyone and everyone about what's going on in the world outside, and inside warwick.
Regards to all,
