College Diaries: Week One!

November 04, 2017

I have been putting off this post for quite a while. As all you you know, NaNoWriMo has started quite recently so I didn't want to post even though I'm not doing it.

However, I am trying to finish my novel this month. So I'm technically doing it. 
So here is what I present to you (thought I've definitely taken my time), a week of my college diaries!

And to clarify: I am not doing uni as in a three/four year course. I am in a College of Further Education, which is where you go after Secondary School (a mixture of middle and high school in certain countries) if you can't immediately go to uni or if you want to go into the workforce immediately and/or for various reasons.

I am doing a one year course this year because I unfortunately was not able to complete the one I did last year. The course is Creative Writing and Cultural Studies.

Induction was pretty decent despite the fact that I came 'in late', thinking that I was going to come in early, only to find that the class was full! 

I sat down next to a girl with ginger hair who I thought looked kind.

I was pretty happy to receive my timetable and to find out that we don't have school on most Mondays! We start school on Tuesdays.

On Wednesday we started an epic poem called Beowulf which was translated by Seamus Heaney and I bought six copies (notebook) during the lunch break. My back suffered that day.

On Thursday, we had no classes so I made a bookmark for my student planner and one for my copy of Beowulf!

On Friday, our Fiction writing teacher told us to write a fable for homework.

I hope you guys liked that! It's way shorter than a lot of posts that I usually write but I just decided to go with it (it looked a lot longer in my bullet journal, though?).

Also, if you have any questions to ask me, feel free to do so in the comment section below.

  1. Are you enjoying your course?

    I find it strange how school is so different from country to country. Interesting but strange :P Enjoy Nano and college!

    1. Yeah, it's pretty interesting and I believe that I can pass this one!

      Thank you!

  2. That sounds good, Grace! I'm quite nervous about making friends at uni when I go. Your course sounds very cool!

    1. Yeah making friends is always a constant struggle.

      It's okay, I guess.

    2. Lol I totally get it when you feel like you *should* be enthusiastic about something but it's just okay. Anyway, keep going, I gueses :)

  3. Ooh, nice post! Sounds like you had a good start!

    The College of Further Education sounds a lot like Community College in America, which is what I go to. They're one or two year courses you can take, either in preparation for going to a four-year or to get a certificate and head into specific trades or the workforce. So, cool, it sounds like we're doing something similar!



Keep it all clean, man. Well, if you really wanna curse, use minor swear words. And I mean the minorest of minor ones.

"Or what?" you ask in indignation.

"Or else."
