Summer School started at the beginning of this week and while my lecture was supposed to be on at 2pm, I caught the early 8.30am bus together with my friend Phoebe. I thought I might as well go in early and either do a bit of study or catch up with old friends. It would be good to get out of the house and away from the family for a little while (hey I've been stuck in the house for far too long!!).
When Phoebe and I got to the city we caught up with another friend Archi and went to Gloria Jeans Cafe (I think that's what it's called?) to celebrate the start of the uni year with a drink. I tried this Tim Tam chocolate smoothie-sorta drink (Tim Tam's a chocolate biscuit). I never realised the Tim Tams were blended and put into the drink! I thought I'd just get the biscuits!
We then went to the library basement where Phoebe was going to have her Commercial Law lecture. We caught up with some more Rutherford guys like Cameron and later on Gwen and Angie who unsuccessfully crept up on me! (I turned around too soon :P). I ended up deciding to attend the lecture.
It turned out to be quite fascinating and in the end inspired me to borrow a book on NZ's legal system later that day!! I was sitting next to Phoebe and Angie, poking Angie once or twice to keep her awake (I don't even know if she even fell asleep! Oh well..) I made the mistake of not going to the toilet during the break after the first hour, so I made a run for it as soon as the lecture was over.
Phoebe and I then went over to AUT to eat our homemade lunch till her boyfriend Alan came over. I thought I better go and just as I was about to leave them I caught up with my other friend Alice who was with her friend Lisa! I tagged along with them as they went over to Sky City to make some enquiries. We had to walk along a walkway that was above the casino, which was the first time I had ever seen what inside one looked like in real life! I have to say it was slightly underwhelming!
I then walked with them to their bus before walking back to uni when I caught up with Gwen and Cameron walking in the opposite direction to their bus stop, so I decided to tag along with them! Once they caught their bus I finally made my way back to uni for my lecture.
I caught up with some of the other pharmacy people in the lecture theatre foyer which was kinda cool as I hadn't seen or talked to any of them since last year. As for the Stats lecture, it was extremely slow and boring! It was the first couple lectures afterall I suppose.
After that day though I decided I won't bother coming to the lecture for another couple of weeks. OK that's not entirely true. I had booked myself out for the rest of the week and I'll be helping out with my church's children's summer programme all next week. They upload lectures to the internet anyway!
To be honest though I've been a bit slack and am about four lectures behind (although I have sorta gone through the lectures before Summer School started) so I'll have to have a Stats lecture binge tomorrow before the new week starts and I get further behind!
