Reading week has been noticeably lacking on the reading. I have become a terrible student since I got here. They really shouldn’t have told us things were pass/fail. That was just a bad call. Without most classes this week, I’ve done a variety of things while telling myself I’d do my work later. Let’s just say I think I’m becoming a master at procrastination.
It’s been sunny here for three days in a row. That alone has made this week truly wonderful. It was also the last week of class before Reading week which made it even better. Also, it was a week full of holidays and I made sure to celebrate to the fullest. I’m glad I had fun this week before having to hunker down in the coming days to work on several papers for class.
You never realize how big a difference five hours makes. That is until you decide to watch U.S. sporting events five time zones away. Was it worth it? Completely. For the first time, I picked a Super Bowl winner and UNC unexpectedly beat Dook. So, it’s been a good week here even though my sleep schedule has been completely thrown out of wack.
This week has flown by. It’s the first time in a while that time has rushed by and I couldn’t be happier because that means I’ve finally started to settle in. Naturally getting out of survival mode has allowed me to enjoy some of the finer things England has to offer.
