As the second term is nearly starting, I thought that talking a little bit about the first term of the year will be a kind of exercise of memory of what happened in the first part of 2009.
As the year was starting, the thought that always had in my mind was that my first experience of studying at the University it would come soon. The change from my little school to such a big University was an expectation that I had since I left school last December. However, when I started in this new place, I quickly accustomed and really felts like home.
The subjects began, I meet all the teachers and learn all kind of new things, from introductions of Anthropology and Psychology, to the most hated subjet of all time, Social History of Chile…Nevertheless it was a very interesting subject, the exigency of the teacher was unbilibable, he treats us like we where completely genious! This subject was quite a challenge during all the fist term, but luckly I managed to pass it.
Also, I had to choose one sport as an extra subject, so that, I took Pilates, a sport created by Joseph Pilates long time ago. This sport improves the flexibility, strength and balance; but also helped me to relax and forget -for at least two hours- all the others assignments.
This was my academic situation, but in my personal and family life things and changes happened also. My family and I moved out to another flat in May. In ours working lifes, my mother change of work, my sister started working on a colsunting of art, and I started working in a store. Also, I went to encamp with some of my new friends in March, and went to the beach in the winter break with some of my school friends... If I continue telling the things that I did the last term, I wouldn´t stop in a long time; but the most important thing is that the first term was a very important, interesting and most of all, a very positive and unforgetable one.
