So, here is a recap from my Michaelmas term!
|First: Matriculation photograph. Now, Cambridge will forever remember my face. Try to find my face! Photo by Sara S.|
I have told you about my matriculation to St. Edmund's College before, including how nice the dinner was. However, our picture of 2014 cohort was actually taken at the end of orientation week, when the weather is still super nice, and the sky was more often being blue than gray.
There are, I believe, hundreds of us. As you can see from the picture, Sara didn't take the whole picture. There are still more people on the right and left. When I posted this picture on my Instagram, my middle school friend told me, "They all look so old!" Come on, +Muhammad Surya Nugraha, of course. I have told you that my college only accepts 21 years old or above people, as a 'mature' college.
It is really interesting, though, that there are many more guys than girls...
I also had my mock exam yesterday, which I prefer not to talk about it, haha.

Including this string tag. It binds your question booklet, and you use it to bind your answer sheets at the end of your exam. It is supposed to be more environmentally friendly than the staples, and more binding than the paper clips.

|A whole heavy duty binder. It consists of: Mechanics, Structures, Materials, Thermofluids, Electrical and Information, Mathematics, and Guide to Units.|
When I was studying for Thermodynamics, I realized something. My professor actually wrote a quote on the first page of the very first lecture handout.

Another part, of course, is the (other) new friends I make here. We are actually planning on doing a potluck tomorrow, and each of us will cook a food from our home country. Yes, my group of friends is really international this time, haha. Not a big surprise, right?
Then, of course, since it is getting really cold, I will not be able to punt until the spring comes. That means, the pictures from now on, will be gray and dark, until the new season comes. Until then, here, enjoy my first punting picture.
|Thanks, Sara's camera! It looks so good, haha.|
Wait, visa what, Titan?
Yes, I am going to Barcelona, Spain, next spring. That's a good news, right? I might have told you that I am taking Spanish this term. Even though I have never taken any formal Spanish class before, I am in lower intermediate level now (what's so called a 'fake beginner' level). I am actually ineligible of going to Barcelona trip arranged by Language Unit of CUED, but I convinced my teacher (thanks, Sebastian!) that I am going to work hard to reach a certain level. This is important, because there are going to be lectures, visit to factories, as well as networking sessions arranged in Barcelona.
I hope it is going to go well. Then, I have more story to share with you guys.
Happy Holidays, take time off to rejuvenate, and have fun!
