(no subject)

Well, been a pretty good few days. Easy week at college - the Tuesday class was cancelled, and there wasn't a seminar on Wednesday (we get them most weeks, but not every week), and Thursday is always clear, so I only had college on Monday and Friday. I also hear that we have a reading week coming up - the idea is to have no classes at all for that week, so that we can just catch up on reading textbooks etc. Interesting thing on Friday (graph theory) - the book mentioned Kirchoff's laws. This is something I learned about in my Physics A level last year, so I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the course had some practical benefit after all. (It was interesting, so I don't regret it at all, but the main reason I did it was to help me with my undergrad backup plan, which never became necessary.)

Magic on Thursday was a bit disappointing - we've got some new players, with really annoying decks. That's the second week in a row that they've made the game really tedious, so I left early this week - I think I may avoid playing with them in future.

Went off to Brighton yesterday, since cubbasket missed the ICSF trip in the summer, and that was fun. We spent ages in the Magic shop there, and I've got quite a few new cards for my collection - I'm trying to assemble a "luck deck" at the moment (based on coin flips).

Looking ahead to this week, I'm slightly concerned about Thursday night, i.e. Halloween. Collapse )
