Classes and other things

My university is a twenty minute walk from where I live. This morning, I walked to university, attended my classes- both of which were very interesting but almost overwhelming in terms of the reading I shall have to do for every single class I attend. We have classes as well as seminars, where we discuss our work and/ or our impressions of certain texts. I also have an academic advisor for whom I shall have to pen about 3,000 words a fortnight. My classes today were entitled Anthropology and Human Rights and Anthropology of Kinship, Sex and Gender. After class, I headed over to the library.
The library is humongous and learning to navigate it will take quite a while. I took out a couple of books that I need to read for tomorrow's class and headed home. After the entire day, I was really tired. I slept for an hour, went downstairs to eat dinner and came up and wrote emails.
Yesterday was a more interesting day. A friend and I went to eat at a restaurant called Hare and Tortoise and had ice-creams afterwards. I don't really know too many people yet and so it's refreshing to get to know someone who's that cool. You know who you are ;)

That library sounds very tempting indeed.

There's this little Italian place run by Italians, it's called 'Ciao Bella' - (http://www.ciaobellarestaurant.co.uk/)...I used to frequent this spot a fair bit when I lived there...liked the chaotic atmosphere and the pasta portion sizes are hearty...and oooh, there's a piano man too =)

Further down the same lane, there's a bunch of other eateries... I used to hang out a lot at the Perseverance Pub too :D
