Compare the meerkat
Hi! And welcome to my blog.
Nearly three weeks into the new term, and I am finally settled in to my new room and new lectures. I am also getting back into cooking on a (nearly) daily basis…but “unfortunately” I live 20 seconds away from a Chinese take-away.
Me, myself, and I
Along with my obvious love of Chinese food, here are a few more details about me:
- I am in my final year of Maths and Economics. I just can’t get enough of numbers!
- I LOVE meerkats! Over the Summer I went to London Zoo and spent most of the day by the meerkat enclosure.
- Born and bred in South London. My two favourite things about London: It’s very multi-cultural, and there are lots of sites to see.
Not-so Fresh Meat
No, I’m not referring to the kebab you might have indulged in after a night out this week. “Fresh Meat” is a Channel 4 comedy about students who are now in their second year at University. Get your latest dose on 4oD.
If like Vod from Fresh Meat, you are finding yourself a bit short of cash, why not test out the new societies you want to join before becoming a full member. Many societies host free/cheap taster sessions – from hula hooping to martial arts to hockey. You don’t even have to be a fresher to attend!
In my first week, I sampled lacrosse! It was so much fun, and hopefully I’ll be a pro by the end of the year. Lacrosse is particularly good because it has a beginners team that play friendly matches. So no pressure to be amazing at it!
The following week I went to street dance (Wednesday evenings in Portland Building’s dance studio). What a work out that was! It got so hot in the studio that the mirrors were steamed up by the end of it. Niiiiiiiiice…
Highlight of the week
Hope this blog gave you an insight on what to expect from me. Highlight of the week? Monday night: Attempting the “Gangnam Style” in Oceana’s cheese room.
Don’t know the Gangnam Style dance that is sweeping the nation? Learn it…now!
~ See you next Friday! ~
