A mere two years between entries isn't that bad, surely? Given that it's been a while I'm going to ease myself back in with a picture heavy general catch up.


The top five points worthy of note since I last frequented these...

congrats on getting into Cambridge smile thats awesome. Glad mini you is doing well too x
mat8drb:
1) I bet Cambridge would be lovely if it wasn't for all the tourists. Kinda like shopping in a number of ways.

2) This is why you have it so much harder. Maths? No reading. Everything else? Reading.

3) I can't believe she's four. I mean, I remember earlier blogs. That's amazing.

4) Interrailing? That'll be awesome. Jealous.

5) I have a cat. Technically my housemates, but he loves me more than my housemate.

I am still in London, have a beard now, and am doing a second degree. Live continues averagely.

Well then.

As is the tradition, I dug out my annual end-of-the-year-quiz and began filling it out. It was neither amusing or interesting, and to be fair, this is hardly suprising.
2008 will always be committed to memory as the year that I for both filed for bankruptcy...

That does sound like a very interesting and specific course, where would you be studying that?
If you get the chance, just keep pushing your education until the powers that be tell you to stop. Thats my plan smile

I've always liked the environment, as a kid i use to read up about trees,insects, the oceans etc and i always watched the David Attenborough programs. When it came to deciding what i wanted to do at uni, it was an easy choice. The course is excellent and it's just starting to specialize more which is good. Next week i'm going to Millport for 5 days to do lab practicals on ecology and in feb im going to Portugal for a week to do more practicals, i can't wait smile

What do you plan to do once you've finished? research, teaching, job or more education?
iris:
and you shall indeed have mates rates smile

Thanks for the lovely long comment and for all you said.

I hope student life is treating you well. I'm sure Nottingham will happen sometimes in the none too distant future so I shall let you know. Add me on evil facebook, would be good to keep in touch x

Thanks for your love on the Battle Royale Set wink

Sheer randomness is cool smile

Hi, the name is in tribute to all the silly people who ask me really dumb questions when i'm working at the zoo, such as "why don't the penguins fly away" or "are rhinos dinosaurs" - these questions are by adults shocked

I decided not to apply for the course because, it would cost me a small fortune, i couldn't really find a safe place to stay and my qualifications and scuba diving experience is limited compared to the rest of the applicants

However if i get the funding i might be going to Sri Lanka to study mangroves next summer

Congrats on getting your certificate and well done for getting 80% smile

Those cupcakes look amazing!!!

Cats are awesome. I don't think a person will ever appreciate cats until they actually own one. If you do get a cat, I'd suggest getting a boy. They tend to be more laid back (if you get them castrated). Girls are really temprimental.

Good list! smile
solipsistic:
Those, such as yourself, who fall into both catagories don't need to queue at all..

Facebook is evil- it made me feel violated. And not in a good way.

I believe it's possible to be a cat and dog person.. I am. I used to have two of each and I would again if I didn't have to slave for twelve hours a day for The Man.

You have to pay to go bankrupt? surreal

Yup I found the scenes in I Am Legend with the dog pretty touching, and shed a tear for him too. Shame the rest of the film was total crap after that... mad
