So in the spirit of keeping you updated on the first year university experience here what my week was like.
The previous weekend I was given an assessed problem sheet so I thought to my self , don’t plan anything then you can go through a first draft of that . What actually went down is that Friday night I went out to a last minute friend’s birthday celebration at London’s Comedy Club. Saturday I woke up late then walked to Fulham for an amazingly mouthwatering home cooked meal and a whimsical french film snuggled up on the sofa. As soon as I arrived back in halls get a call to go to Evelyn Garden halls to play articulate since neither me nor my friend can form big enough groups in our halls alone to ever play (clearly we’re really popular), and as we all know an occasional game of articulate is necessary to get by! I ended up staying there till 2am eating pancakes. This is when I make the dumbfounding discovery that several of my friends have never had proper American pancakes. I know what you are thinking, this is just horrific, how could I possibly be friends with people like this, well we are getting there. To rectify this problem it was arranged that they would come over to my halls next Friday to make them together. Needless to say not much got done the rest of that weekend.
I have to say pancakes are so helpful. That Tuesday I was getting a tad stressed about my workload in the library. I left to get some free pancakes and ended making them for over 2 hours before feasting on the ones left over. It was here is was given the idea of how to make my basic American pancake recipe that bit fluffier. My oh my did it work well, if I do say so myself! It make have taken a few batches and some dodgy hobs to perfect but I think i have finally mastered it and fed some hungry students along the way. Not only did I not fall asleep when I went back to the library I also was pretty productive. On my way back I was in such a good mood I skipped and sang down exhibition road thinking no-one else would be around only to run into two people as I go around the corner. Sometimes I forget I live in central London!
Friday in celebration of handing in our assessed problem sheet we celebrated by making our new perfected pancakes and chatting till the wee hours of the morning. Saturday one friend from another uni came to visit then Sunday another one came to visit so all in all no work got done again…. I think I am starting to see a pattern. Anyways that all means I should stop writing this now and do some of my problem sheets!
