No... I am not talking about the hit series 24, sure wish i was, Jack Bauer can do so many things in 24 hours, he can save the president, save a bunch of hostages, save some random hostage, disarm a nuclear device, kill a bunch of baddies all in 24 hours, while i can't even balance my uni life and social life in 24 hours, let alone save the world, Uni is very much different from how i have been educated all these years, here lecturers do not care if you slack in the exercises or if you arrive late or even if you skip class, you are pretty much on your own in uni, almost everything is done all by yourself here...and i am not exactly a person who can sit and revise all night have i even mentioned how hard is it to make real friends here? Most of my friends are from the same tutorials, and we only meet once a week, unlike the 5 times a week schedule that we all have been used to, don't even talk about lectures or practicals, well in lectures i pretty much don't talk to anyone except maybe the guy beside me because the rest of the time is spent on listening to the lecture, and in practicals, everyone leaves once they complete the days questions... dammit i feel like i am losing my social skills here, i used to get along with a lot of people and never had any trouble making friends, i really don't know what is happening to me...anyways i got to return to my books or i will be left far behind!! ciao!
