Week 61: InterUniversity Real Tennis Tournament

My work finished the week on a high note, as I managed to get my program working with the model that I was using, so I’ve done enough such that I’m at a good place to try and get some decent work done while I’m away over the new year’s break. Interspersed with my work… Continue reading Week 61: InterUniversity Real Tennis Tournament

Week 59: Oxford Real Tennis and St Alban’s Signal Box Trips

Workwise, my week was one of the most productive since Orientation. I did a lot of work getting my model implemented into the new code that I was using, which required a bit of maths to reaffirm that I knew exactly what I was doing. But as always, the exciting parts of my week happened… Continue reading Week 59: Oxford Real Tennis and St Alban’s Signal Box Trips

Week 58: Gates Term Trip – Ironbridge Gorge

In terms of work output, this was one of my more productive weeks since Orientation. I finally managed to put together enough motivation and concentration to be productive through most of the week. I discovered that a program called MicrOmegas would work better for what I was doing than a number of others that I… Continue reading Week 58: Gates Term Trip – Ironbridge Gorge

Week 54: Real Tennis Doubles, Dominica Appeal and Orientation Recovery

The first full week back from Orientation still found me exhausted. I tried as much as I could to get back into a routine, but I found it difficult and ended up oversleeping or napping more than I would have liked. I managed to make my way back into the department for a little bit… Continue reading Week 54: Real Tennis Doubles, Dominica Appeal and Orientation Recovery

2016-17: Year in Review

The conclusion of the Orientation trip to the Lake District brings with it a moment for reflection and contemplation. For one, it is the culmination of months of work on a massive project which now leaves space to focus on new tasks. For another, it marks twelve months since I moved to Cambridge from Australia,… Continue reading 2016-17: Year in Review

Week 48: Bouncing and Skating at Alexandra Palace

I spent most of the week flitting between the GSCR, Real Tennis and our new house. I managed to arrange for the internet to be connected to our house, but it wouldn’t be installed properly until early September. Mostly, I was working on matters relating to Orientation. The new scholars would be arriving in less… Continue reading Week 48: Bouncing and Skating at Alexandra Palace

Week 36: UK General Election Debate in Cambridge

On morning of bank holiday Monday, I played a Real Tennis friendly against a guy named Paul, who told me that he was trying to convert from his squash skill to tennis. I played off a slightly lower handicap that I ought to have, and so lost 1-6, 2-6, 3-6. The following days were spent… Continue reading Week 36: UK General Election Debate in Cambridge
