Hello dear readers, and welcome to the first NFKickass Activities of the second semester. I hope you’re just as ready as me for another semester full of kick-ass words, sentences and paragraphs. By request, the theme for this week will be “turtles”. Who doesn’t know what I’m talking about when reading the word “turtles”: imagine slow, large frogs with a big shield on their back. Also, try to pick up a book once in a while. You might learn something. But anyways enough about the reptilian animals that look like the leather couch at your grandparents’ house that probably saw it best days back when they bought in from a hobo in the 80’s. We still have an agenda.
Monday, there’s nothing to do. But, if you have a walking speed similar to that of a turtle, you might as well already leave for the fakbar on Tuesday in the M-café, starting at 9 pm.
On Wednesday you can come to the Cobra-café in the salons of the HIW from 6pm. That’s a free reception serving as a conclusion of a Cobra conversation day. Such a conversation day serves a function of content reflection in a bigger plan of Cobra as a method of quality control for education of the KULeuven. For the enthousiasts, here are some more anatomical facts about turtles. Turtles are actually cold blooded animals, but their body temperature is usually a few degrees higher than the temperature of the environment due to the turtles’ high metabolism. Also, the space inside the shield of a turtle is very limited. So limited that when a turtle withdraws into the shield, he/she has to squeeze all the air out of his/her lungs in order to fit. So it’s probably not as comfortable as some of you might’ve imagined.
Thursday, there’s a lot to do again. For those of you who understand Dutch, NFK is participating in VRG’s Interfacultary Eloquence Tournament. From 8pm until 12am you can come if NFK’s title defender Hans De Mey, whose many similarities yours truly neither confirms nor denies, will be able to win a third trophy. If you find all that talking rather boring, you can come to fakbar Letteren (Blijde Inkomststraat 11, Leuven) where NFK organizes an IKEA TD together with Eoos, the faculty circle of the student who study languages and regional studies. It promises to be a lot of fun!
Friday there will be breadmeal in the lounge to good practice. You can come eat as much bread and bread related products for the democratic price of 2 euros. There are still constants in life, hurray!
So, that’s it for this week. Hopefully until next time, and for now try to remember that turtles can’t hear very well because their eardrums are covered with skin. Goodbye!
