    Off to lectures after 5 months off - will be tough! :P
    I feel the same, the last time I had a teaching was in late April, so it'll be hard to get used to the routine again... Actually, I had my very first lesson today at 9 am, I almost overslept, but finally managed to get in on time. The funny thing is, though, it's such a difference from high school, because we were given five sheets of grammar rules which made all I learnt at high school a joke (or, to be more precise, it seems we covered only shallow basics there).

    I only have 10 hours timetabled this week Wednesdays and Thursdays off, nothing until 2pm today.

    Unfortunately I have about a gazillion other things to do today and I am still sitting here on the internet
    Lucky you... But even though I have so few lessons, I also have to sort out some stuff...

    I love the Ingold cluster. Right next to my halls in first year (for those days when the two extra minutes to the main library was just too much...)

    Oh, you were there, too? Yeah, the Mao guy was amazing, when he came to the microphone, I and the guy next to me blew off with the words, "This is so thematical"

    Hey. Not to pick at your wounds, but if I'm remembering right, did you fail a module when you were on your YA? What happened? I literally understand nothing in my lectures and so I'm preparing to fail everything come Christmas Sorry to doubt your skills if you didn't actually fail anything, haha.

    I went to UCL last week with my college's academic academy, for educational stuff etc, you can imagine.

    It was amazing. I loved it so much, I loved the buildings, the busyness, the feel and everything. I even saw the hospital which looks amamznsmandjdjdjebdj.

    I so want to apply there for medicine, <3

    The Grant Zoology museum is also über cool. I found it really interesting, in a non creepy way (pickled remains of extinct animals yum)

    I'm fine with the campus, but I can't tell one end of Russell Square from another :sigh:

    Also, are the freshers' events uniformly a bit **** and overpriced every year? I've had far more fun just going to random clubs/bars/socials as opposed to at the specific freshers' nights, and I have legitimately no idea why I even bothered buying tickets

    Hint on Russell Square: the giant ornate hotel is on the east side.

    And yes. There used to be a popular official event (Club Neon) but they then made it **** by putting it in random places in South London and inviting all and sundry to it.

    Does any Fresher feel like me?

    Basically, I'm here and I love it immensely, I've made friends, people are lovely in general and the whole community is vibrant and I'm never bored. However, I sometimes feel a bit awkward. There are so many clever people and there are so many Britons. I'm not saying that this is bad, but that makes me feel a bit uncertain sometimes. Loads of people speak better Spanish than I do (obviously the same with English) and they are generally better than me in other fronts. Yesterday, we had to write a resume in pairs - unfortunately, I misunderstood the teacher's words, so my partner was very desperate with me and I feel that when I was presenting our work, she was very upset and the teacher wasn't immensely impressed. Besides, the teachers remind us, "This is what you know from A-levels...", etc., whereas I haven't done A-levels at all, so I don't know these things. Another cringeworthy moment from last week's conversation...

    a guy: "So, how good is your written English?"
    me: "Do you mean how well I did at IELTS Writing?"
    the guy: "No, I mean how good your essays in English are."
    me: "I've never written an essay in my life. We just don't where I come from."
    the guy: *rolling his eyes* "So... How are you going to cope with the workload?"

    Is there anyone doing or having done Spanish? As well as any essayish subject? I would appreciate a little guidance before the Writing Laboratory opens, so I am even prepared for drafts... By the way, how approachable are Spanish tutors and other tutors in general? If I turned up and said to them, "I've never written an essay but I'd like to improve my skills to a sufficient level. What would you recommend me to do?", how would they react?
