Jacqueline and I had only just arrived back into the UK the previous day, but she was already hard at work. The preceeding week had seen the largest series of graduations in Cambridge for the year, and many masters students from the previous year, as well as recently finished PhD students had returned to celebrate.… Continue reading Week 96: Graduate Catered Picnic
It was time for the last week in Cambridge for a while. At the end of the week, Jacqueline and I were to head to Australia via Hong Kong to visit my grandmother and sister while my parents are away. At work, I spent the week trying to turn my plots into a moving image.… Continue reading Week 92: Preparing for Departure!

By the end, I had enough to go… Continue reading Week 87: Falkland Palace

Sometimes, it can feel as though more time is spent working on everything other than what I am actually here to work on. Nonetheless, I made it through the week without major incident. Tuesday was rather… Continue reading Week 86: Summer Approaches
