of to the woods…
..infact a very specific wood, a wood commonly called ‘Dave’. He is so called mainly due to the fact that his name is in fact ‘Dave Wood’.
Anyway, on Thursday of week10, there was a Differentiation Lecture for first years, given by the said wood.
For some reason, one night in the bar after focus, we had an idea to ‘turn up to his lecture and create chaos’.
Unfortunately the others where far to shy, and so although 2 other 3rd Years turned up, they really didnt make much of an impact.
In order to try and bring some life, I decided to follow the adivice in the previous blog(ish).
I turned up 12min late, walked in the back, stomped down the stairs, then walked along the front (to grab Dave’s attention), and then up a few rows on the other side to sit down..
Dave: “didn’t you do this course like, 2 years ago?”
me: “I just thought I’d have a recap”
Dave: “strange boy”
Unfortunatly not to the same extent as in Measure theory (by a long way), but enough to get Bells and Christelle(sp?) to laugh… so I felt my work was done.
To my shame I actually have avoided differential equations for hte past 2 years, (since my shocking result in what was then DiffB) and so wasn’t able to point out many mistakes…
(though we did get the missing out a half in Taylors theorem)...
I fel this was a nice 2nd to last lecture to leave term on… Measure theory later that day was spent looking through Chris’s Magic Decks (a CCG, i.e. card game… for those that care) and friday was spent in Bed as I felt quite exhausted after our last focus event of the term.
Now I have finally left Coventry… and will remain in Tutbury for the next 30 hourse (ish), hmm don’t you just love the restful nature of holidays?
