So I had about three hours of official lectures last week. Somehow at Cambridge each week starts on Thursday? Yup.. not Sunday or Monday... but Thursday. Yes... I raised my eyebrow. But a wise man keeps telling me "resistance is futile..." so I accept it and don't question it.
The first lecture was on Land Law. 5 past the hour, the lecturer starts to lecture (obviously) and you could hear about 200 people madly typing away. It was weird. I guess it's because I haven't sit in a lecture with this many students for a long long time. My last time there were this many students in one room was... 1996?? And way back then, no one had a laptop in a class. Unfortunately, I was one of them but I couldn't not type everything like some of these kids. They must be machine. I wonder if they are actually digesting the material at all or typing the lecture word by word.
Last Saturday, I attended an introductory lecture on "Studying Law", where the professor suggested hand writing the notes instead of typing. So I think I may try that tomorrow? But then I will want a set of typed notes eventually. But I just can't type everything. What to do what to do.
