Hi everyone! Welcome to the 5th installment of my GYG blog :grin:

An introduction:
I'm Flaurie (Laura) and I'm 3 weeks into my first year maths degree (proper lectures started this week) :woo: I've settled in and i'm really enjoying it so far!
Education
I ended up (after a very weird sixth form experience due to covid) with A*A*A in maths, further maths and geography and A* EPQ

Modules:
I have 6 compulsory modules this semester, the first 3 being core (i.e. i need to pass these!)
Spoiler:
Show
> Calculus
> Analytical and Computational Foundations (ACF)
> Linear Mathematics
> Foundations of Pure Mathematics (FPM)
> Applied Mathematics
> Probability

I think stats and mathematical structures start in spring?

> I also have some coding stuff (in Python 3), these make up 15% of each of the core modules :eek: I'm looking forward to this though :dance:

Goals for the year:
Basically just to exist as a functioning adult , not to eat pasta for every dinner (as delicious as it is!) :yep: and pick up learning French again

I'll hopefully be updating this much more regularly than last year's blog (every week or two :crossedf:) Let me know if you have a blog I can check out! :grouphugs:

I'll be starting a new tag list for people who still want to be tagged :rave: So please say if you want to be kept/put on the tag list :yeah:

Isn't it so rude of people, taking your username before you come up with it?!!?! Believe it or not, there's a user called TLG on TSR! I should have patented my nickname
