So it's been a little bit more than a week since I last told you all what was going on, and the reason being is that I have been a bit busy. When I say a bit I mean really busy, because classes started last week, and I had a huge project that I had to finish by friday worth 50% of my grade. But other than that this first week went really well.
On monday I started classes with ENT 100 which is Introduction to Enterprise. The class is about how to become an entrepreneur, and the different forms of corporations an entrepreneur can form. It is a great class, it just came at me real fast with our first presentation being due last friday. Needless to say it was stressful, but I got a good group of guys as partners and we got the project and presentation done very well. We got a 2.1, which for me was an A back in the states.
Above is a picture of my first classroom at Mast House which is one of the University buildings that isn't on main campus. It's a nice 15 minute walk from my house which is nice in the morning. I feel like a morning commuter to be honest. Mast house is down on the Barbican so it has some beautiful views first thing in the morning to be honest, well more like all the time.
Then I also started my second class here (I start my third class later this month), and I really like this class. It's STO200 Introduction to Operations Management, and it's the biggest class that I have ever had to far. It's a lecture hall of over 100 people, and for this small town boy from the sticks it's a bit of a change. But the lecturer is really good so far I just need to read and study everything that he puts online and in his lectures I should be fine I would like to think.
Things are starting to calm down with classes here and I'm getting into a pattern which to be honest I think I need. I have joined the ENACTUS here in Plymouth which is great and I'm really looking forward to working with them and seeing what I can create.
And my flat is still great, the girls in the flat above me are awesome. There flat and ours have diner with each other on sunday's, and it's nice makes me remember all the family diners that we have back home.
And I continue to walk around Plymouth here I keep seeing more and more beauty from around the region and its nice. I can see why people from PSU want to stay here, and not leave. I saw the Mayflower steps the other day and it made me think that in 1620 the first people to come to my country set sail from here. I took a minute when looking at the monument of what Plymouth must have been like when they set sail and it really put things into perspective for me which made me think about how thankful I am to be here.
But that's what's happening now I'll keep you all posted on what's going on throughout my time here, and all the adventures that I'll be going on well I'm here. I hope you all are having a great day wherever you're reading this. And remember Stay Classy.
