In July I said I will be back with new photos and stuff, and not much has happened since, has it. Well, that's just me and my great resolve to Do Things I Have Told Myself To Do
I cannot even make excuses and say that uni has been keeping me so busy I don't even have the time to pick up my camera, because then I would be lying. Though with the finals now in full swing, maybe I could manage. But speaking of my uni studies, and since it's pretty much the only topic I have something to write about (sorry), I have to say it has been great, so far! During the last semester I had the opportunity to cuddle Madagascarian hissing cockroaches (they were hilarious), play with European Rhinoceros beetle grubs (weird but cute), dissect earthworms, cockroaches, slugs and crayfish, feed bits of said dead crayfish to its live brethren who gobbled them up enthusiastically, take pictures of tiny things with two different kinds of electrone microscope and overall have loads of fun.
In all seriousness, though. I was scared of uni life, because I am not fond of big changes in my life, moreso when I have to leave behind my friends and not be able to see them every day at school, but in the end it all turned out well. It seems like I am one of the luckier people among my former highschool classmates, though. Some of them are very unhappy about the uni they have chosen, and plan to quit and change schools next year. I am quite content, though. We had the opportunity to pick what subjects we want to attend this semester (I know it probably works like this in American unis, correct me if I am wrong, but it is quite unusual in my country), and thus I had the chance to avoid any icky chemistry subjects. Well, most of them. I signed myself up for Laboratory technique, which was actually quite fun, doing various experiments and all, but the final exam has given me a bit of trouble. I re-took it and passed on the second try, though, so it was alright in the end. Plus the doctor who was teaching us was a saint, which was lovely, too. Overall all of my professors this semester were great, which I am very happy about. They didn't give me any trouble during the finals, both written and oral, which is nice - but today I have taken a particulary tough exam on Evolutional biology, which is quite infamous among the student body (mostly because of the professor, who is too similarily infamous), and maaaybeee
it's possible that I have passed it, which would be brilliant. There are horror stories being passed among the students about oral re-examinations from this subject, and I don't really feel like being part of a new one. So I have my fingers crossed for myself, if that's even possible. I still have a couple of exams to go, but I am actually quite looking forward to the new semester (I am going to have to take fewer exams!).
So, this has been another lengthy account of my life so far! If you have read this far, I hope you didn't expire from boredom (and my inability to use the past perfect tense correctly, damn it) , and that it has distracted you from my lack of submissions in the last six months.
Very belated Happy New Year, everybody!
