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.

Denmark Trip Days 2-6: DAνCo Conference

Over the five weekdays during my time in Denmark, I was attending the Dark Matter, Neutrinos and their Connections (DAνCo) conference.

Week 18: Living in La La Land

I’m not sure on the best way to approach writing about my eighteenth week in Cambridge. Everything about it was so deeply emotionally charged, and in the past I have found sharing my thoughts and feelings with even my closest friends an immensely difficult endeavour.

Parent’s Visit, Days 11-16: New Year’s in London

On the morning of the 27th, I walked with my parents to the Cambridge railway station. Over the next two days, they would be going duo to Dover. This part of their trip had been the least planned. We had discussed it the previous couple of days and decided that they would get the most… Continue reading Parent’s Visit, Days 11-16: New Year’s in London
