I haven’t moved to Cambridge yet, but I’ve started familiarizing myself with “their ways”…
I found out that the Cambridge week starts on Thursday. What? My whole life, I’ve heard the universal complaint about Monday, the return to the work-week. Now I have to get used to the rearrangement.
And that’s not the only way my week will be screwed up. I now have to give up my treasured Saturday-morning sleep-in. Yes, I have lectures on Saturdays. Well, at least (I hope) I have Saturday night open, and the next day to relax for as long as I want… until I have to get up to write my, uh, biology essays (how exactly does one write a biology essay?). Also, it seems the mentality of “work on weekdays, have fun on weekends” is not nearly as predominant as I am accustomed to. Rather, they spread both studies (did I mention they refer to “studying” a subject as “reading” it?) and entertainment throughout the week; hence I already got Facebook invitations to events on all seven days of the week.
Now I just want to stop wondering and find out what it’s like for myself. T- 3 days.
