The Year Begins.
The first week of uni was enlightening/exciting. The inductions showed off the facilities very well particularly the Mac suite, which I am looking forward to useing. We had the task set to find 5 things in the city: A specialist shop; a good place to eat; A museum or gallery; a "surprise" and a Manchester find. I know the city quite well anyway but I thought that this was a good way to open our eyes a little more as we were actively searching for specific things. I really enjoyed the trip to the Imperial War Museum on friday. I thought the building itself was beautiful although it was a grim day and Fresher's flu kicked in fully that day. The museum experience was different to any other as well by having interviews of war survivors projected onto the walls. Very interesting. Also we got together in groups to present our findings from the day before. Nice way to interact with some people. Very active week coupled with all the Fresher's week celebrations.
