Lab Sessions Becoming More Challenging
The semester is well under way, with both the work and social activities gathering speed. On the work side, the lab sessions are becoming more challenging, and require more work outside of the session. Maths tests require learning and revision, and other modules have already set their first piece of coursework.
The increasing amounts of work mean that the inclination to put work off is becoming ever more tempting, but you have to make sure that the work is done before allowing yourself too long to relax. Time management is becoming more difficult, but also more important, as at times during the week, there are tests, lab sessions and pieces of coursework that need to be handed in within a few hours of each other. However, once I was used to my timetable, I was able to plan a time to do everything I needed to (including this!), and still have plenty of time to relax and socialise.
On the social side, the societies and sports teams are up and running now, with the first couple of weeks having been dedicated to attracting new members. The ECSS football team played our first game on Wednesday, suffering a narrow 4-3 defeat at the hands of Biocellona. Despite the loss, the team looked extremely professional with our brand new kits, complete with names and numbers on the back.
There was also an ECSS social during the week, and although I didn’t attend, it did seem that the lectures the next morning were slightly emptier than normal, and with a few more bleary-eyed students attending.
