Before classes began, there was an activity fair and I signed up for the Drumming society and for other martial arts clubs. I wanted to join either societies or clubs in order to meet people. I went to different taster sessions for clubs and societies including Kickboxing, JiuJitsu, Judo, and Drumming. I liked all the taster sessions but I wasn’t prepared for the JiJitsu session.
I did not know that JiuJitsu entailed a lot of punches and kicks. I decided to join Judo instead because I immensely enjoyed the taster session and the people seemed friendly. The drumming club was fun but the beginner sessions were overcrowded. I realized that the likelihood of making friends through the club was low. I decided to drop it but I remained in the Judo club.
So, this Monday, the res life in my accommodation took us to Baskin Robbins for free two ice cream scoops.
It was great and I had a nice conversation with some native Scottish students. I learned the fun name for a fish and chips shop: Chippy.
