How I feel usual terms are like
How this term felt
Dealing with ecology, animal biology, geology and spanish is quite tiring. With nature society, climate and sustainability forum and various other things, I'm not too sure how I'll be doing come Easter next year. But the other things will start to slow down after Lent so presumably it won't be too bad. Nonetheless I'm not looking forward much to Lent cos the academic workload would be even worse.
Despite all that, this term was actually relatively good. I've managed to attend some 30 odd talks and events, ranging for natural history to language, conservation to international development. I've also joined our Catholic Chaplaincy's (Fisher House) St Vincent de Paul Society, and went for a couple of soup runs, where we give out Pret sandwiches and hot soup/drinks to the homeless around the city centre. Also started serving mass, which is pretty interesting. Didn't manage to go for any outdoor meets to peak district with either the mountaineering club, hillwalking club or caving club (which I'm actually quite sad about), but I did go for my first bouldering competition in London (haven't competed in agesssss). Don't think I did well, but it was good fun anyway.

Fisher House carolling at the market square (one of the few times I felt the Christmas spirit this term)
Overall, there's been quite a few new things for me this term, sleep deprivation is a chronic issue and
I've probably missed out on a lot of stuff from this term, but those were probably the main ones anyway. It's late now, I've got to pack up my room tomorrow and run a bunch of errands before leaving for Christmas holidays. Which will be great - Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France and London in a month, some with friends, some alone, mostly with family(:
Meanwhile to those still having exams/working/having a tough time, hang in there, and stay safe. So much happening in Sg these days.
