I've been in Buffalo for almost 3 weeks now, and it definitely has been a unique experience for me. Living all alone, away from my family and friends, away from familiarity, learning how to be independent, cooking my own meals, doing my own laundry, getting used to the cold and just being in a whole new environment. I am very thankful and lucky to have so many awesome friends here with me to help me through, to guide me along and to help me with uncertainty. :)
This semester, i'm taking 5 modules, but all my lessons only fall on tuesdays and thursdays, which means i have 4 classes a day. Its a good and bad thing i guess. its good because i have a lot of free time to study or do other stuff, but its bad because that would mean all my deadlines and exams will fall on the same days. I'll really need a lot of self-discipline to not procrastinate and do my work at the very last minute.
Oh and i was really, really lucky to be able to get an apartment in Southlake Village! I only applied for it when i got here, and i'm really, really thankful. :) I was supposed to stay off-campus with Naz and Angeline at a comms lecturer's place, but due to certain circumstances, it ended up being too dangerous to stay off-campus, so yup.
Since i got here, some of the interesting things that happened would be our little trip to Niagara Falls during the first week here, and the 3D2N trip to NEW YORK CITY, THE CITY THAT NEVER SLEEPS! Niagara Falls was really pretty and majestic, but it was such a pity that the Maid of the Mist boat tour isn't operating during winter, so we didn't get to see the falls up-close :( NYC was really fun, and i'd really love to visit the place again someday. Some of the prominent places that we visited were Times Square, M&M's World, Hershey's World, Central Park, Rockefeller Center, Grand Central Terminal, Brooklyn Bridge, Chinatown, Statue of Liberty, the Financial District, and SOHO for shopping! It was so much fun fun fun! :D
Here are the links to my pictures on Facebook. Enjoy! :)
