Week 35: Kayaking, Bike Theft and Croquet

What would end up being a hectic week began slowly; the only notable activity beyond work entertaining my Monday was to go out to an Asian noodle bar with Annalise and Jacqueline. The food tasted and smelled like the food courts back in Adelaide, a scent surprisingly rare in the UK. On Tuesday night, I… Continue reading Week 35: Kayaking, Bike Theft and Croquet

Week 34: Cygnets, Homerton Formal, Concerts and Tennis

The first non-work event of the week was the Orientation Committee hand-over. This had been arranged the week before and was an opportunity for some of our committee to meet with the previous year’s to discuss how the whole operation fell into place. It was also a good time for us to ask questions on… Continue reading Week 34: Cygnets, Homerton Formal, Concerts and Tennis

Week 32: Elections and Trinity Hall Formal

The week began with a rejuvenated spirit following my trip to Yorkshire. As per usual, the weekdays were filled with the usual schedule of working, lunch, seminars and dinners, but I was working on producing a calculation rather than reading papers, which spurred me on a little. In particular, I was looking at trying to… Continue reading Week 32: Elections and Trinity Hall Formal

Week 30: Real Tennis

Aside from Easter Monday, this was a pretty ordinary and uneventful week. Each day would involve riding into the department, working, having lunch, working some more, going home for dinner and relaxing through the evening. That isn’t to say nothing interesting happened. On Tuesday, I went with Jacqueline to see another potential house for next… Continue reading Week 30: Real Tennis

Week 27: Traditional Birthday Punting

After a whirlwind adventure through Bulgaria, it was time to get things back on track and to some relative sense of normalcy. On the first day back, being a Wednesday, work resumed with the regular weekly… Continue reading Week 27: Traditional Birthday Punting

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
