Recycle Recycle Recycle

15 October 2007

Blog Action DayToday is blog action day, and as such I’m writing about my favourite topic: Recycling. I’m not currently impressed with the facilities at Warwick, despite being able to recycle most things, but as usual corrugated cardboard can’t be recycled easily. There was a note went round today saying it could be left by the Plastic bins on a Thursday, which seems promising, however unless you have aluminium drink cans, you can’t recycle any other metals. For this reason (and she doesn’t know it yet) I’m going to ask my mum nicely to take them home with her when she comes this weekend. Talk about virtuousness.

One week down, lessons learnt

8 October 2007

I’ve been here a week and have severely neglected my blog. I can honestly say that I’ve been far too social to actually do anything productive, and all the late nights are taking their toll. It’s a fantastic place however, filled with great people and the nightlife isn’t to be sneezed at either. I sound like a walking billboard.

I’ve been joining societies, but I’ve tried to be restrained! I’m a member of the French, German and ERASMUS Societies, and I’m going to join Compsoc, just as soon as I pull my finger out. I also want to do trampolining and climbing, so I joined the sports centre. I think we’re planning to do some exercise classes too…yum, me in a leotard :S

I still need books and I also need to take a trip up to University House – it’s almost as far as the Westwood Laundrette, but not quite, so I am a glutton for punishment.
