Freshers and lectures do not mix well..

So uni so far has been awesome. I haven't done any work yet, it's all been inductions and what not but my tutors seem awesome and the people on my course seem really cool too. The one of my tutors has worked with the team that made Ed, Edd and Eddy, Need For Speed: (Couple of them can't remember), Skate and Star wars force unleashed. I find this so bloody cool, to have someone with experience in the gaming industry as a tutor is going to be a great help. So far I have an American, Scottish and Welsh tutor, I might have more but I haven't been introduced yet.

 I've been out with my house mates drinking the past few days and had to get up each morning at 8am with a hangover and go to a lecture.. Worst thing ever. It's so boring and hot and you feel like crap and all you want is your bed.. It makes it worse too that my house is within blowin' distance from the uni, you could literally blow out a match that's being held in my garden from the uni.. After today's three hour lecture I got back to my room expecting to nod off easily as I was super tired but I didn't manage to get any sleep, so instead of sleeping I put on some really loud music and cleaned my room (woo, go me!).

Tomorrow I have a health and safety talk about the equipment and other stuff, it's so that I can take out equipment to help me with my major project and maybe some other stuff? Not too sure. Thursday is going to be the best day of the week, I'm going to Laser quest with my course. It's going to be Games design (that's me) vs Animation, it's going to be awesome! Friday is mainly a day to get freebies and also to have a library tour.. YAY. Oh and Friday is when I should be getting my loan, wooo.

Hope your week's been going good! Any tips for laser quest? aha

  6. Yes, hangovers are very unpleasant, you can get properly focused for the whole day, nor do you get proper sleep required for stay fresh, I imagine? I wouldn't suggest drinking when real lessons start.

  7. You get to go to Laser quest? damnit I'm seriously envious. I think I'm more envious of that than of having a tutor who's worked on great games.
