This is going to be a horrible week. I wanted to do a fair amount of blogging, as the buzz of getting this page is still alive and thriving. Unfortunately, my course has decided I’ve been getting far too much sleep lately and coursework after coursework after coursework has been piled onto my plate. This means I will not get any free-time whatsoever this week and thus, I am sitting in the back of a Digital Electronics lecture on my laptop
Even though this was not at all planned, it links on quite nicely to a series of David Attenborough style “observational blogs” I plan to do when I have the availability or the ignorance to do so. I want to go round to each department’s recreational areas and blog about what I see. The chances are, each visit will be a lot of people hunched over computers glaring at a mathematical equations, but I’m still hopeful for a bit of eaves-dropping and gossip. This is partially because I want to explore more of the college. When we were all given the job of “Imperial Student Bloggers” we were told to explain what it was like being, working, living at Imperial. However, I honestly couldn’t tell you anything more than my old halls, the Electronics Department and the Union. The reality is, most of us stick to our own groups; the only people I spend my time with were my fellow ISE colleagues and my hall mates.
Two weeks ago, I went to a Chocolate Society event (and am now a member). As well as the sugar-rush and very interesting conversation, I had a great time on the balcony of the 8th floor of Blackett. I was completely unaware of amazing places like this around Imperial. The balcony there is huge, as big as some lecture rooms, and boasts a brilliant view of the Royal Albert hall. I want to find more places like this, and let you know the beauty of the campus.
Right, must be off. Tomorrow (Wednesday, blog edited and published shortly after. It went great!!!) I have a rehearsal for a 10-min presentation I have to give for a scholarship application next week. It’s entitled “My greatest achievement to date and why”, so effectively it’s two minutes of content, eight mins of waffle to try and impress important people with money and job opportunities. Not looking forward to it at all!!
Thanks for Reading,
