I know it’s been a long time since my last post and I don’t have any valid excuse apart from being busy at university. I have been occupied right from applying to colleges, anxiously waiting to get into one to finally settling myself in it.
As a compensation for not posting any article, I am filling in with all that has happened until now in my life. First off, I got into a university in England. Nottingham Trent to be precise. I am currently doing my undergrad in Computer Science (Games Technology) over here. The college is really amazing with a beautiful campus and I am absolutely loving it.
As I landed in the United Kingdom, I got myself a few additions to my device collection to make quite a nice gaming/work setup with a PS4 or an Apple TV with gaming support (next article) to be soon added onto that. Here’s a picture of it all right below.
It’s got an Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display, iPad, iPhone 5, Bose Companion 5 Speakers, PS3, Alienware 17 (with the Alienware TactX Headset and Mouse), Xbox One Day One edition and a Nokia Lumia 1020 (That’s right, I’ve always wanted the whole MS suite too). As you can see, that is pretty much my life on my course and I am loving it.
My life here has been quite eventful and hence pretty hard to concentrate on each and every one of my hobbies. Now that I’m settled I am planning on posting a few photographs of my university campus. I don’t currently have my DSLR but I do have a 41 MP camera on the Lumia 1020 which takes pretty good shots like the one below showing that beautiful Day One edition controller (Yep, I’m in love with it).
As for the experience, in addition to the fun filled gaming, programing and learning part, I am really having one of the best times of my life. The people here are unexpectedly polite, generous and, while I’m at it, have an amazing accent. I’ve made quite a lot of friends while in parties (night clubs and Xbox Live) or by just bumping into people in my course or student accommodation. I am definitely happy with the friends I’ve made and can’t wait to meet the rest.
The food too, like everything else, is plain incredible all the way from the Cadbury chocolates to the Full English to the English roast. They all just define perfection. Been having it on a daily basis for quite a while now and I still am not bored of it. I am pretty sure I haven’t experienced all of British food but I am definitely getting there and I like almost all of it. There are just a few changes that I just don’t understand like “chips” being “crisps” and “fries” being “chips” here. On that note, I also do love their Fish and Chips.
On the whole, the English experience is more than a delight to me. Also, in addition to finally continuing to post technologic, photographic and occasional personal articles on this blog, I’ve decided to start posting a few of my gameplay videos on YouTube with one already uploaded for you guys to check out. Thanks for reading. Next article coming up soon!
