The night of the last entry saw me go out for drinks with my friend Jim and his girlfriend, whom I had not met before (even though they've been dating for about a year now!). There were a couple of other people there, but both of them had to leave fairly early and quite a few other people couldn't make it, which was a shame. Other than that, my last days in Peterborough passed fairly uneventfully, much to my disappointment, and a date I was supposed to have never got back to me (although such things are always a good way of weeding out the people who don't have the manners to let you know!).
On the university front, well, I went back to Leicester on Wednesday 6th January to hang out with uni people and get some revision done. The revision, I think, went well – I'm hopeful that I got a 2:1 in that module, but we shall see. I don't want to hex it! Had a meeting with the supervisor for my second semester project, which sounds really interesting, because it's about the effects of a star's rotating magnetic field on its protoplanetary disc. Also had an interview (which turned out to be an oral exam in disguise!) about my first semester project, which was interesting but really boring simultaneously. Lectures start again properly on Thursday or Friday next week, so hopefully I can write some of my assignment before that happens (but then again, pigs could fly...).
Gamesoc starts up again on Monday, which is the day I return to Leicester for the Lent term. I'm looking forward to this term, but unfortunately, the rebuilding of the Union is playing havoc with our established calendar of events. This term, I'd like to see the return of both the charity boardgames social and the Geek Quiz, but there's nowhere in the SU that could realistically host either event, which might make things significantly more difficult! I'm sure we'll muddle through.
At the moment, I'm sharing a room with my oldest brother, and all four siblings are in Peterborough together. The youngest of us had an A-level exam, which I don't think he was very confident about, but I'm sure he did well. Dave's going back home tomorrow, I believe, and James leaves on Monday. We have had a good laugh whilst they've both been visiting, and it's always hard saying goodbye to James because I very rarely get to see him and I miss him quite a lot most of the time! Obviously, I'd never let that slip, though...
I don't think there is really anything else to report at the moment. I'm still looking forward to seeing someone when I get back to uni, and I'm currently listening to some music which is something I don't do enough of. I bought The Hangover: Unrated on iTunes today so I want to watch that at some point, but apparently James didn't find it very funny, so I'm not sure I'll be able to do that before getting back to Leicester. I'm also going to treat myself to a new TPB tomorrow afternoon, I think.
I'm sleepy, but I don't want to stop listening to music. Annoyingly, I can't take my headphones out because I'm sharing this room. I'm sure I'll work something out, though, so until next time, ciao!
