Bulgarian Trip Day 4: The Mountain Monastery

Our late return the previous night from Plovdiv meant that, as a group, we slept in a little. By the time we did all get up and processed through something resembling a morning routine, it was time to check out of the hostel. Jacqueline and I each left our bags in the luggage room, but… Continue reading Bulgarian Trip Day 4: The Mountain Monastery

Bulgaria Trip Day 3: Horseback Riding in Plovdiv

The alarms were set for 5:30 AM, and it was that we grumpily got up and threw all our clothes on. We left the hostel only twenty minutes later for a dark walk through the early morning streets of Sofia to the Central Railway Station. Today, we would be heading on a day trip to… Continue reading Bulgaria Trip Day 3: Horseback Riding in Plovdiv

Bulgaria Trip Day 2: Socialism and Dancing

The combination of the early flight, the late night and the time zone change meant we all awoke late in the morning. Slowly, we passed through the shower and wandered out into the lazy Sunday morning. Paul wanted to go to a local mass, so we found (online) a nearby service to begin at 11… Continue reading Bulgaria Trip Day 2: Socialism and Dancing

This is a huge relief to me and a big cause of stress removed. It means that, finally, I can fully concentrate on work here in Cambridge, rather than be constrained by outstanding… Continue reading Week 25: Games at Trinity and Hiking in Thetford

Week 24: My trip to Shippea Hill (and other shenanigans)

As far as work goes, I spent the week just reading recent-ish articles on TeV-scale Higgsinos, but that was by far the less interesting part of my week. To begin, on Monday, Jacqueline and I were invited over for soup cooked by Annalise. She had prepared a large pot and didn’t want to eat through… Continue reading Week 24: My trip to Shippea Hill (and other shenanigans)

Week 23: Lent Term Trip – Lion King and Cycling in London

It was a week of lower intensity, having resubmitted my paper and no longer having to stress about it. Hence I was able to be more sociable and have a few later nights out. Tuesday was for the next reading in Callie’s facisim reading group, talking about the panopticon – a system of psychological control… Continue reading Week 23: Lent Term Trip – Lion King and Cycling in London
