First Year is Almost Over

So this is it, two more exams and first year is over. I can hardly believe that it was 8 months ago that I left what I knew and came to Southampton to start my degree. If you had told me what I would have been up to before I started I would have thought you were crazy ... getting BUCS points for canoe polo, winning our league and cup for rugby, caving for half of my Easter, doing my kayaking 3* and still having time to eat, sleep, socialise and do some work.

Exam Results Are Back!

Today was a very eventful day. Aside from the less obvious (the music DVD I won arriving in the post) we got our exam results back!

Lots of Exams But Christmas Is Coming!

So, I’ve just submitted the last assignment due before Christmas and thought I should update this thing to let everyone know what’s been going on for the past few weeks! We had our ITO sailing trip; it was the best experience so far on our course! We all had a great time… that was until we wrote the assignment on it: / I never thought I would submit a report with nearly 5,000 words in it this semester, but it somehow turned out that way! I suppose that is better than only managing 50... Continue reading →

2011 so far – Part 1

2011 so far - Part 1 It may be becoming somewhat of a cliché, but what a year it has been so far. Such a busy and exciting year it has been that I’ve not made time to write a blog about it yet. Oops! Sorry about that. But fear not, with a few weeks rest now, in between exams finishing and the start of work for the summer, I’m finally able to give you an update on all the exciting things I’ve been up to. January started off with Semester 1 exams. Continue reading →
