First week back at university and it’s completely different from first year. One difference is that our lectures have already begun, unlike first year students. We don’t have that chance to stay in bed in the morning after a fresher’s event. Another difference is that we have to swipe our ID cards against the ID readers which have been introduced this year. This is a new updated way to take a register which allows the university to keep an eye on our attendance. So guys, remember to swipe your cards to be seen! Also a big change is that our geography lectures are now recorded. Last year I had to record the lectures on my phone which drained my battery! This is very helpful for us because it allows us to re-listen to our lectures so we can pick out any missing points that were made.
Furthermore, It’s late September and it’s that time where second year geographers go on a field trip! That’s right, we’re going to Blencathra in the Lake District. The advantages of being a geographer; we get to travel. It will be a 2-3 hour drive up the M6 which will be fun! We’re staying there for 5 days and 4 nights. Unfortunately, we’re going for academic work and not for leisure purposes. Since Lake District is one of the wettest part of the United Kingdom; it will be raining when we get there (according to the weather forecast). Thank God I’ve got my waterproofs and wellington boots. Plus, I’m looking forward to going because it will be my first time visiting the Lake District.
Anyways guys, I need to start packing now. So I’ll update you soon with details on how the trip went.
Speak to you soon
