Many apologies to everyone for a lack of a blog post in the past few weeks – things have been insanely busy!
I started class on August 26th (annoyingly when most of you were enjoying a bank holiday!) And since then I haven’t stopped! I take 5 classes and the hours I spend at Uni are double what I would do at home. And the work we do – so different! I had a map quiz last week on the middle east, believe me when I say I am awful at Geography! This is why I took History!!!
However I am just about coping and getting into a routine, even though my Tuesdays and Thursdays are hellish. I have also joined the Swim team and am part of a few other societies which work in the community which is cool.
My room is also starting to look more homely mainly due to the fairy lights India and I have hung everywhere – didn’t have pots and pans for a while, but we had our priorities in order!
It still doesn’t feel very real that we are in DC, maybe because we all talk the same language I dunno. I know at some point it is really going to kick in though – possibly when the weather stops being so strange!
I promise to do much better and keep you updated on my goings on!
