next few days

So – finally finished my degree today by handing in my last 1% as a crappy little data analysis sheet. Feels good to be done. Though wish I could just have another few months here.

Next few days I have Final Fling, then up early (to be breathalised) and drive up to Scotland, Friday up stupidly early to start 3 peaks challenge. Finish on Friday night (hopefully) / Sat morning, and get back and sleep. Then Sports Fed, which will be awesome too.

Basically lots of money spent. To add to the additional £415 from today (for more gap year stuff)..... :S oh well…..

Week 10 is shaping up to be busy too – our scientific paper we're publishing has just about had its final minor changes made to it, but little bit of work still left to do.

My great–aunt in Kenilworth passed away on Saturday – very sad, she was much loved by all her family – most of what I've been able to achieve throughout my education has been due to her. Funeral on Tuesday – everyone coming down, flying in etc. Also got Claycroft BBQ that day to run – could be interesting.

I will have my car (for the first time ever) at uni in week 10 – with the sole purpose of loading it up and taking all my stuff home at the end – not a day im looking forward to at all. Definetly not. Meeeep!

hey big spender

In one go.
Gap year paid for.

(my switch said ouch – i could swear it did)

June 09, 2006

booked !

Follow-up to gap year from Indeed

woooo excited ! and tad relieved its finally done too (better late than never)

also dont want to go on about it too much, since i'm sure people are going to get fed up hearing about it. Hence shall blog and leave it alone.

06Aug 06: Fly to New York
Trek America (ie camping) for 3 weeks across the US going west
spend a week in San Francisco
06Sep 06: Fly from LA to Tahiti for 3 days
15Sep 06: Fly to Cook Islands (1 week there)
23Sep 06: Fly to Fiji
One tour round the mainland for a week, then 2 weeks bumming around out in the island chains
08Oct 06: Fly to Auckland – and head to Auntie Anne's for my 22nd birthday (3 yrs ago I said I would be back) – then next 4 weeks travelling around the lovely country that is New Zealand
10Nov 06: Fly from Christchurch to Sydney

then I've got 3 months to work (hopefully waiter/barman), and then a month to travel up the East coast of Oz. Also should be meeting up with 2 uni mates (Mike & Lewis) who are going to be in Sydney from Jan–May 07

08Mar 07: Fly from Brisbane to Kathmandu
next 2 weeks trekking in the Himalayas, up in the Annapurna Sanctuary, possibly with my dad (50th birthday)
then an overland trip from Nepal across India to Delhi

10Apr 07: Fly from Delhi to Bangkok
Meet up with Kate Frost (an old friend whose quit job and taking a gap), and head East through Cambodia (Angkor Wat temples), and into Vietnam. Then 2 weeks cycling up the country on the coast in early May, before heading West into Laos, and back into Thailand. Then south to the beaches in June, and on to Malaysia.

27Jun 07: Fly home from Singapore.

So 11 months, 14 different countries, and a load of fun (I hope!). Flights were £2000 alone. Jabs and medicine are going to be another £500. Insurance £400. Reckon its going to cost me £13k total – switch card taking a beating. Might just have enough to get by on if the job in Oz pays well. Eitherway – I'm going to be stoney broke when I get back. Hehehe…..

a nice week in fact

yeh – one week ago i finished my exams – havent achieved anything really since then.

ok gap year plans are basically finalised – but still plans (not much action). Shall be resolved soon once I can get in touch with fellow traveller lady for May–June07.

other than that….. couple of ok / quiet nights out, generally not drinking toooo much. Although score on wednesday was a definite exception – 7pints at a small circle, followed by a whole heap of laughs and fun and dancing to cheese – brilliant night out (even tho union wasnt exactly full). Maybe for first time ever saw one or two of the advantages of being single. Shock.

anyway – just thought I'd blog as I haven't for a week.

all done

finished my finals – feeling a little drunk – and not a sodding care in the world.

life is great

birthday blog

one year ago today, "Indeed" was born – i was bored of revision and needed to procrastinate. hmm… deja vu

just spent the last half hour reading through all the entries and comments – quite nice to look back at stuff that otherwise i would have forgotten

ok – there have been quite a lot of changes in my life in the last year – but ive been my usual busy self, and i cant say i havent learnt from the experiences. i realise how lucky i truly am to have such awesome friends, who have made everything at uni such fun (and helped me when needed).

my final final tomorrow – and then the glorious 4 week holiday / bum around that is the end of the year (& sob uni). Plan to enjoy it as much as possible - but not spend too much – am also going to get a digital camera next week (early 22nd pre–gap prezie) and take some good pics of peeps and places. Also 3 peaks too

other than that, June is a month of decisions – gotta actually pay for gap–year stuff now (tis getting close) – and decide and investigate possible career paths for afterwards. BIG stuff.

anyway – otherwise quite happy to just go with the flow – gave up looking for someone a few months ago – feeling more settled and a happy single now if that makes sense. i am indeed a gregarious creature – i think my only wish at the moment is to savour the end of uni outside in the summer sun surrounded by my mates (& some beers)

resnet really does suck

im sorry – im not usually one to complain – by why is it that every weekend that campus internet falls over? this time it was dead by 4am saturday morning…

im only able to post this blog by the use of a proxy, which currently is only allowing access to warwick uni local sites (eg no msn messenger)

grrrrrrr. nash teeth / wail etc. and why do we have to individually claim for compensation – when its pretty clear its been mucking up the whole of campus on and off all year??

i need my number one procrastination method… :D
