Finally got round to enrolling at the uni today, which means I have now got a username and password for the uni’s computers. Hence this blog entry. I’ve also posted two more, for last Tuesday and Wednesday, with the appropriate timestamps. I can’t be bothered to do more right now so I’ll finish it tomorrow.
The only other thing I did today was attend another orientation lecture, this time about how to pick courses. It seems the system here is rather ad hoc – instead of enrolling for all your courses in the same place at the same time you have to enrol on each one separately. I’m hoping to do something different with my year than the usual slog of CS and German, but until Swansea’s German dept tells me, I have no idea if that is allowed.
I must get round to buying a mobile, if for no other reason than that my bank wants a phone number for doing foreign transfers (currently my German bank account has nothing in it). I’ve also seen a rather nice laptop in the shopping centre, but it’s a tad expensive so I’ll have to wait for my Socrates grant before I can get it.
