Back to School, Back to School, to Prove to Dad I’m Not a Fool

June 27, 2011

First Day of Kindergarten!

Today was our first day of school! It was exciting, but also a little scary. After a not so perfect start (I woke up fifteen minutes before everyone was meeting), we successfully managed to take the tube all by ourselves to the meeting place in the city for orientation. It was a SUPER hot day (sun+ smog+ swarms of people= death) so we were happy to finally arrive at the University of Westminster‘s library where we would meet our student advisors for a brief session about our new school. We got our student IDs and then went to lunch that they provided in their campus cafe called “The Deep End” (it’s located in their old swimming pool).  We ate platters of sandwiches of ambiguous and slightly questionable origin, kabobs, and fruit. There was also a pretty delicious looking male student advisor named Mike. After lunch, he led us to our classes past Ogle Street. Pretty appropriate considering… ;D  After class we went SHOPPING (!!) with two of the girls from our program, Lauren and Emily. We shopped ’til we literally dropped at TopShop (their version of Forever 21) and Argos (their version of Target/IKEA). Now we’re off to our first round of FISH AND CHIPS! or in my case, chips and chips.

    Tell us more about “The Tube”! Is their subway system similar to the one in Taiwan or New York? Is it pretty fast/easy to get around? Do they have a station right at the university or nearby?

    How big is the campus? What does it look like? How is it different from K-State?

      The Tube aka The Underground is pretty much the samesies as the subway in Taiwan. Fast/easy to get around but SUPAH hot and SUPAH grimy. Station is about 10 min from my university. Campus is scattered around the city in single buildings. Differs from K-State the same way London differs from Manhattan.
