Going back to Uni certainly was an adventure. Not quite on par with Japan - a lot less fun and a lot more hard work. But my classmates are really, really lovely. There are 12 of us on the Space Physiology course and 12 on the Human and Applied Physiology - which means we are all nice and close.
Right in the last couple weeks before Christmas, we had three huge, huge pieces of work - I was so thankful to hand mine in a week early - and then the sense of relief to be done with term was just such a relief!
