Earlier today this disclaimer was brought to my attention:

Christmass is here, I have arrived (again) in Tutbury, and will stay till new years.
The christmass tree is up and semi-decorated, and I have nearly thought about buying presents (give it a few more days).
Anyway, I can now sit back and ponder over the success of last term. I know most people in Westwood(church) are dissapointed at the canceling of ‘engage’, however to be honest I was very much happy when I heard the news.. it took me quite a while to stop rejoicing…
Focus this term has come up to full strength.. well more in some ways, but still overall lacking due to the previous years. I’m not entirely sure what the reason is, I’d like to consider it is some combination of:
-prayer (specifically the several hours worth I managed to get people from westwood to do near the begining of term), but also the continued support
-God giving us many oppurtunities (and answering prayers)
-Us (the exec) noticing the oppurtunities and then actually doing something.
The exec has been very motivated and active this year, and I am very gratefull to all the efforts…
One other success story society wise was Mathsoc, (now WMS). ALthough I left the exec before any real action occured, this was mainly down to lack of spare time, and I’m very pleased to see the current exec actually getting some kind of action out of it..
Anyway I should probably go and have tea now,
Merry Christmass everyone

..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?
