A week in the life of ...

Victoria Gardiner

BA English (Penryn Campus)


No lectures today – a good opportunity to get started on my reading for the week. In the afternoon, I had a wander around Falmouth and then I spent the evening watching Bridesmaids with my housemates.


I had lectures for both my Reason and Passion and Modernism to the Contemporary modules, which were interesting and useful. Afterwards I took a break and watched an episode of Downton Abbey before cracking on with a plan for my upcoming essay.


Today I attended a ‘Refresh Your Maths’ Careerzone session – it’s always good to recap the basics! In the evening, I headed to Tremough Harry Potter Society’s Alchemy event and enjoyed some fun Harry Potter themed cocktails.


Today I met up with my team members for RAD’s LOST event, which we’re competing in to raise money for Mind. Afterwards, I had my seminar for the Modernism to the Contemporary module. It was helpful to discuss our reading in more detail and share ideas with other course members.


On Friday morning, I got up and headed to my final seminar of the week (yay!), which was for Reason and Passion. After that, I headed to the library before coming home to relax.


I had a productive Saturday, which was spent researching for upcoming essays and getting my reading done for next week. For dinner, I practiced my vegetarian cooking skills and made a delicious lentil ragu.


This morning I walked up to Gyllyngvase Beach for a breath of fresh air and treated myself to some chips from Harbour Lights. I did a little shopping in Falmouth before coming home to work some more on my essay plans.
