Yesterday I had four lectures, each for the first time and in four different buildings… but I somehow managed to be in every lecture in time! The first one was a computer science lecture, which was kind of boring, because I already knew everything covered in that lecture.
The second one is called “Communicating for a Knowledge Society” and seems really interesting… but I have to write an essay, do a presentation and design a poster, in addition to the exam!
At the beginning of my third lecture, “English as a Second Language: Writing Research Reports”, I wasn’t sure if I was in the right place… because nearly 90% of the people there were female and wearing a headscarf. But I was in the right place… I’m basically the only European and one of the two males in this course (and the only science guy :P).
The last paper (another computer science lecture) was read by a German guy… I figured that out almost immediately because of his really strong German accent. Also this guy was literally smiling all the time… for one hour straight. I seem to be the only European guy in this lecture, too.
Overall the day was kind of exhausting… so I went to bed soon, after grocery shopping and dinner :P
PS: the second day was also exhausting… I’m not used to be at the university for half the day, because of all the free time I had during the last weeks :P
