Hello freshers. And non-freshers. I am officially back.
Wow, it’s been a while. What have I been doing, you might ask?
Well, my holiday was of variable quality. For the first month, I participated in UROP. That is a pretty cool thing for all new students, as it allows you to do some research during your holiday. Of course, you might do that in your labs or practicals anyway, but a) you will definitely not get paid for this (and it’s possible to get a bursary for UROP), and b) you have no chance of publishing a scientific paper. So I worked on something in the Biomedical Engineering department (a.k.a. The Pink Cube), and it was pretty interesting.
Secondly, I went to a place I wanted to visit for a long time - Hong Kong. It was my first trip to Asia, and hopefully, not the last.
Then I briefly came back to London, with my main intention to move to a new place. I succeeded in doing this. The little downside is that my new, um, apartment is of a size of the bathroom in my house. But hey, at least it’s practically on campus
Lastly, I went back to the home country of Poland. Nothing special there - life as usual. Except I did some hiking in the nice Czech mountains. I returned to London last week - after a bit of an argument with Ryanair and Wrocław Airport staff (come on, my luggage was only 4 kg overweight ;)).
So here I am. Sitting in my second home - the library (I still have no internet at my flat - and none of my neighbours uses unsecured wi-fi), trying to think what to do. My current ‘to-do’ list has 12 items, hopefully, will be done very soon
From now on, expect frequent posts. If you have any ideas what should I write about - please contact me. Also, a reminder - follow me on Twitter - maybe that will make me twit a little bit more.
