I moved back to Leicester after the Christmas holidays this week, which is getting surprisingly easy now. I’ve done it plenty of times, so my packing is down to a T and takes me no time at all really!
So I’m back to university and work has restarted once again – but luckily for me I don’t have any exams this January. No Geography third years have exams in January because the department chooses to push any we have from semester one back until the May/June exams. This sounds odd but is actually really useful, because it is done in order to give us more time to focus on writing our dissertations, which are due towards the end of February.
Currently I’m working on a remote sensing report, which is due on Tuesday, then once that’s finished I’ll be creating a presentation – I have to give one on an overview of my dissertation and the results I’ve got from it. It’ll be interesting to hear the presentations from other students who have the same supervisor as me, and it’s not formally assessed which takes some of the worry out of it all!
So thankfully, without exams I’m not feeling too stressed at the moment, although for those people who are, the students union had organised something different at university on Thursday…a ‘stress-relieving’ petting zoo! It was set up on the campus, and there were quite a variety of animals, including a pony, dog, cow, sheep, goat, lots of chickens and lots of ducks! You could pet them all and hold chickens and ducks if you fancied, which was a pretty funny thing to see on campus! University can be pretty random sometimes, which is one of the great things about it!
