Since I’ve returned, life has been fairly hectic and I’ve not had the chance to really write anything! After catching up with everyone, and saying some hard goodbyes to what was a shockingly larger number of people than I’d expected and hoped, I am now free and able to get a post (or two) up here.
For the start of this semester, I’ve had to pick two classes, rather than the standard one here. This has made my time table much more packed, and for both courses, I’m missing classes for the sake of the other. Passing these will definitely prove a challenge. The bright side however, the second half of the semester, I’ll get my loans, and have too much free time, that not even the internet can take up! That means one thing: travelling to see the people who left, to see them for one more time during this year before I head back home for good.
One of the two courses I’m taking is about something I’ve never done before: Climate Change: Politics, Leadership and Power. I’m so glad I picked it, I’ve been (un)fortunate enough to have only studied the hard sciences since 17. So this is a massive change of pace, interesting and the type of person you meet in these classes are different! It’s refreshing and I’m glad I’m doing it
Anyway I’ve been working in nations over the past few weeks to try and scrape a little more money so I’m not living on bread this entire year. I’ll write about it in my next post.
