It’s been awhile since I last posted here, mainly because I’ve been getting used to classes and traveling a bit. This week has been really busy because my RSM (Research Methods) class started and it absorbs a lot of my free time. It’s like being back at UT, since my schedule is comparable.
So, it’s been a little longer than a week since I first arrived in Manchester. Since my arrival, I’ve noticed a few differences, and I decided to make a list of some big and small things that are different.
Well I have finally settled into the dorm and purchased most of the items I will need for the rest of the semester.
I have slowly but surely learned my way to navigate the city both on foot and on the bus (I need a little more work on the bus, I have gotten lost a few times).
