My course begins! The first lesson of the day wasn't so much of a lesson but instead was the beginning of induction week. This year, my college is completing all the inductions during the first week rather than having them spread out over two/three. My official classes don't start until next week.
Last year, there was one familiar face in the class: the fellow student I met during my tutor interview in late July of 2014. This year, four of my classmates from my previous course, including the one I met back in July 2014, are with me for this next academic year. I am delighted that we'll be together for another year.
