Woke up early today to join in the festivities of my uni’s Orientation events! Went to the Bookroom first to investigate the pricey prices of this semester’s booklist. Did a comparison later with Academic & General and seems like A & G are useless. They didn’t have most of my books on their database, plus their prices weren’t cheaper! Passed some camels They were a bit stinky though…
Scene: Student Services Carnival
Mission: To blend in with all the newbies and collect as much free stuff as possible.
There seems to be an influx of Chanel this year… Got a free lunch with the fairy floss, green tea, popcorn and sno-cones on offer! Bumped into a few fellow students helping with the Orientation. Came home with alot of promotional “junk”, as well as a herb pot-planting kit with soil! Well, that’s certainly different! Maybe I’ll have some living Basil & Thyme in a few weeks! All in all, it was a pretty good “carnival”. Much better than the last one I went to, but the best one definately was my first year one in 2003.
Now waiting for the chance to change my timetable schedule…
