I've decided to do posts with less text and more photos for a change as it's quicker, easier and maybe more easy on the eyes? I dunno. I just thought my lovely followers and anonymous readers may prefer this. Please comment and tell be what you like better.

Tuesday - The day we arrived. After a two and a half hour train journey and 20 mins walk from the station I finally arrived a The University of Cambridge. We were given our keys to our own rooms, a water-bottle, a pack of info (prospectus, timetable of the days, health and safety regulations etc) and a lanyard (id). My room was soooo cute and I had an en suite bathroom! (this is a big deal as my friend didn't, boo). After unpacking was dinner and then we played some games and participated in introductions/icebreakers. This was because most people were from all around the U.K and like me knew no one there.
Wednesday - After waking up at 6.30 (arghh!), we had breakfast and then 4 lectures on Psychology including a lunch in between. In the evening after dinner we went punting, which was lovely as Cambridge is beautiful and the punting lads were even more so!
Thursday - Same sort of day as before but this time the 4 lectures were on Sociology. Then, I was chosen to participate in a focus group were selected students from each course had to give their reviews on the University of Cambridge prospectus. Which meant I was given less time to prepare for the formal dinner and disco in the evening (even though I looked overly dressed compared to the rest of the students anyway), which also gave me zero time to grab my camera for the night/my outfit. The dining hall was decorated beautifully with candles and fine cutlery and there were name plates situated at our reserved seats (yes there was a seating chart, boo!) It was a rather posh dinner and I thoroughly enjoyed it. At the disco we all danced like crazy despite being sober and had a great time (highlight of the trip, i think so).
Friday - The last day of summer school. We attend 2 lectures (one on sociology and the other on combined psych and soc), grabbed our lunch, were given a mug and walked with our heavy bags back to the station. I was v.upset that I couldn't say farewell to most of the new friends that I had made (but I think that's why facebook was created, I guess).
University of Cambridge: mug, water-bottle, ballpoint-pen, lanyard, name plate.
I definitely love Cambridge but I'm yet to decide if to apply there next year or not. I guess I'll just have to wait till AS results day which is in 4 days...arghhhh, I'm so nervous, wish me luck guys!
My next post will be on my trip to London and then, Inception (big movie!). So stay tuned, haha!

The girls and I. BTW, i lurrrvvvveee glossy black coloured doors. I saw them every where in London and luckily I sat down to tie up my laces in front of this beautiful one and so I insisted on a photo to be taken.
This is Paige (from http://collegegirl93.wordpress.com/, so check her out) and I.
My yummy virgin colada.
Hope your summer holidays are going great and if you live in England lets pray for some sun. After 2 weeks of being mega busy, I've found time for the family and so I've been cooking up some recipes (don't worry nothing special, just the usual sir fry) and going for several walks. Also I've also been listening way too much of Vampire Weekend, drinking massive amounts of tea and watching this amazing new show online called Pretty Little Liars.
'till next time, xoxo

To end the ever so tiring week the 'rents took us to Wales for the weekend. We went on a sort of pilgrimage as I am born into a Hindu family. We saw 3 temples, went to 2 'darshans', had lunch, saw some animals and enjoyed the breathtaking views. My mother does not want me to upload any photos of the temples, deities or much of the surroundings, so here's 3 photos to enjoy.
My next post will be on my trip to Cambridge, so keep checking this space!
'till next time, xoxo.
