Hello everyone and welcome to my blog. My name is Pantelis, and I am a 3rd year BSc Economics student from Cyprus. Economics have become very popular nowadays with the Euro zone crisis going on. I must admit that it feels very good being able to understand the reforms governments implement and how they work, why a heavy taxation is not always the best solution and how game theory can be proved useful for a company in the competitive market.
My greatest love is music and dance and I am an avid member of the Dancesport team in Leicester University. Unfortunately, this year I’ve loosened up a bit as me and my partner have a lot of studying and are not able to attend every practice and every competition. Nevertheless, I don’t miss any of our weekly lessons as it is something that I enjoy and relaxes me. I may not be a natural dancer but I am excited to learn some of the basic steps of popular Latin and Ballroom dance and I have to say that it feels great to go out and be able to actually dance.
Besides dancing, I enjoy going to the gym, watching films (catching up with TV-series is included) and do some sight-seeing around UK whenever I’m free. Leicestershire’s rich countryside makes it a perfect place to live. Multicultural London also intrigues me as I am always up for a nice theater or a good restaurant (I am so happy that Leicester offers plenty of multicultural events and a variety of different cuisines so I don’t have to run to London all the time).
I will blogging about my course, the University and of course about any other daily activities I get into as student life is not only about studying. Feel free to comment with your questions or thoughts so we can get the conversation flowing.
