Hello everybody :)
New year, new hopes, new assignments, new courses… Yep, this is the second semester!
Just for a quick recap, at the end of the last semester, we had an extraordinary amount of snow and ice; consequently some of the exams from the December exam diet were postponed since the university was closed for 3 days. That is exactly what happened with one of my exams. I can assure that having exams in December is much better than in January, cause then you can just relax and enjoy your winter break.
I hope that all of us did pretty well on the exams, well, at least from the people I talk to everybody seemed to be quite happy with their results, which apparently is a good indicator of the quality of education here. I hope that all of you had a wonderful winter holiday and a lovely Christmas, just like mine :)
Now, however, is the time to go back to studying. The deadline for the first essays is approaching and some people /like me/ are having class tests next week. Having gathered a lot of wonderful emotions from the Christmas holiday and the ReFreshers’ week, it’s time to delve back to the piles of books
And now – some unilife news and gossip. Last week the Sports Association organized a Health Week, a wonderful event which allowed all students at the university to embark on a healthy lifestyle… even just for a week :) This included a free access to the sports facilities to all students and staff members. And indeed, the gym was pretty crowded that week, but it is definitely encouraging to see so many people in the middle of an intense workout.
The event was very successful since a lot of non-members came to try the various classes and facilities offered by the Sports Association and almost everybody had a very enjoyable time.
So, even though the Health Week is over, going to the gym is undoubtedly the best way to combat the stress related to writing essays and dissertations or preparing for tests and exams. Plus, it is a brilliant way to get to know more people, especially if you join one of the clubs, or even to go for a run with a friend.
Wish you all a very enjoyable second semester!!!!
