Hello everyone and welcome back to the next instalment of my blog. Work is the order of the day (as always) and I’ve been getting up to lots of it!
New lecturers, new course modules, new work. That only means one thing: Semester two is in full flow! So far, there hasn’t been anything too difficult that’s been taught and I’ve managed to get a firm grasp of all the concepts and topics I’m learning (thanks, in no small part, to the excellent resources on the Blackboard ‘moodle’ site) apart from maybe supernormal dividend growth. Mr Khurshed, you’ll be hearing from me soon!
The weather, much like an adolescent going through life, hasn’t quite decided what it wants to be. Sometimes, the sun is out and covering us with pleasant warmth and sometimes the rain thunders down upon Manchester as if the clouds were crying for the students who have to attend their 9am seminars. However, the weather did something quite extraordinary: It snowed… Heavily! A hail of snow fell from the sky and being in the library and looking out of the window, one could be forgiven for thinking they had been transported to another more appropriate destination. Alaska, perhaps? Much fun was had by all though, as predictably, snowmen began to spring up all over campus and an impromptu snowball fight even broke out on my road! I ended up freezing and soaking (never a good combination) but it was definitely worth it. As I said, much fun was had.
Group presentations for certain modules are coming up and all the allocated groups have started meeting up to discuss and prepare what we are to present. I feel like this has given us all a new chance to socialise and get to know other people we haven’t interacted with on the course so far. I know I won’t be the only one finishing the presentation period with new friends.
This past month has been challenging and fun in equal measure and I can’t wait to see what next month holds in store for me. Until then, I bid you all farewell. Until next time!
