After a stressful week, life at Imperial is back to being beautiful. The week began on Monday with the submission of reports for the two courseworks that wreaked havoc in my life. Ahh! that feeling of relief and peace is just indescribable. To celebrate this moment and to pass the 4-hour gap between the current and the next lecture we decided to pay a visit to the Natural History Museum (for the first time!). It may be interesting to note that this museum is a short walk away from Imperial, barely 3 minutes.
Tired as we were, both mentally and physically, we got sick of the antiques, stones, volcanic rocks, dinosaur history, mammals, birds and human bilogy in less than an hour. The legs were asking for rest and the mind for peace. After vowing never to return to the museum we got back to the college, attended the class and rushed home.
I spent most of the evening in my bed, sleeping, waking up and then sleeping again
I felt extraordinaly fresh Tuesday morning and attended my class at 10. I should state here that I’m grateful that none of my classes begin at 9 in this term (more on this in the next post). Since my lectures ended at 12 I decided to hit the gym for a 5km run on the treadmill (after the lunch at Burger King). Again I should mention that there are lots of eating outlets near Imperial and more so near Gloucester Road station, which is nearly 10-minute walk away.
The rest of the Tuesday was spent watching movies and Wednesday (today) began with yet another 10-hour session of comfortable sleep. Luckily, I don’t have any lecture scheduled on Wednesday but I still had to go to the College, for an indoor game of 5-a-side football at Ethos. I’d like to explain more about the football experience (my first!) but I cannot compromise my 10-hour sleep slot at this point in time so I promise to elaborate more on this in the upcoming posts.
I shall not leave you with one of my freshly favourite quotes:
“There is no more beautiful life than that of a student.”
