Spring on the campus: take a glance

Me: “Ok, so now, no more distractions. I’ll be productive and make the most out of this revision day!”

Background sound: *Let’s go out sit on the grass and have a picnic!*

Me 5 minutes later: “I’m in, wait for me!”

 The little angel on my shoulder who whispers that my exams start in two days is overtaken by the smell of barbecue, noise of people laughing and sitting on the grass and the view of the blossomed, sun-kissed campus. So yes, I encouraged myself with the fact that the weather is probably not going to last (because England…) and I quit struggling with my inner ethics battle, grab a blanket and go get that picnic started. While outside, I couldn’t help but be amazed by how colorful and lively the campus can be, therefore, I will celebrate these heavenly days with you through some pictures so that you can make an idea of how it is going to look like once you get here. 

Firstly, let’s just take a moment to appreciate this beautiful spot that everyone wants to find. I have been looking for this tree surrounded by the bench for the whole year, but of course I found it by change, not during one of the “mysterious tree” hunts. To make life easier as you will most probably look for it as well, you can find it in the Heronbank and Lakeside area. It tends to be very quiet around (unless people spontaneously decide to have a barbecue there) so that you can just meditate about the fact that you’re in term three and you should be studying, not staring at the swans on the lake. Well, on better times, you can also have deeper thoughts and the place itself is going to enhance your positive energy.

As you can see, there are a lot of geese around and, as the myth goes, they’re ready to attack you anytime. Poor little creatures, I haven’t seen the dark side of them yet, but to be honest, I won’t want to test the theory as you know, every myth has a grain of truth in it. So keeping the distance and enjoying the view is the safest thing to do.

See those people sitting on the grass? I’m sure they had the same monologue as mine quoted at the beginning of the post, but who can resist to such a vibrant atmosphere spiced up with some 80’s jams and flowy skirts? I certainly have a hard time doing so. 

Ah, Oculus, the place where studying looks great, both from the inside and from the outside. I personally won’t prefer it as an independently studying place, only because I can’t focus while there is so much movement and noise around, but this is a subjective preference.

With this rainbow, I will very much exploit its metaphorical meaning and think of it as a sign that everything is going to turn out great in term three despite this general panic flowing in the air …and in my room.

 So, my friends, here are some pieces of this endless Warwick puzzle which makes me fall in love with it even more. But, with such a beautiful atmosphere and area, I start to wonder whether this weather is a blessing or a curse in my determination to do some proper revision. I guess, if you are an offer holder, you’ll get to ask yourself the same question this time next year when you’ll explore the surroundings by yourself.
