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

gap year

Monday is (hopefully) paying day for my RTW ticket – going to be about £1600 (finally found a good price)

So a more detailed plan is:
01Aug 06: Fly to New York
probably Trek America (camping) for 4/5 weeks across US going west
15Sep 06: Fly from LA to Cook Islands (1 week there)
23Sep 06: Fly to Fiji (2 weeks there)
08Oct 06: Fly to Auckland – and head to Auntie Anne's for my 22nd birthday – then next 4 weeks travelling around the lovely country that is NZ
12Nov 06: Fly from Christchurch to Sydney

then I've got 3 and a half months to work (dont know what yet – probably outdoors / easy), and travel in a loop around Eastern Oz (down coast back to Sydney at the end). Also will hopefully meet up with 2 uni mates (one being Mike) who are going to be in Sydney from Jan–>May 07

03Mar 07: Fly to Singapore
prob one month overland through Malaysia and southern Thailand's beaches to Bangkok – arriving early April. Then hopefully meet up with Kate Frost (old friend) and travel and cycle around SE Asia – Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam – during April and May

31May 07: Fly from Bangkok to Katmandu (if safe)
then overland via Delhi and down through India
10Jul 07: Fly from Bombay back home

Anyway – that is the plan! Dead exciting…... :D

time flyeth by

yeh – end in sight – time to actually go book gap year really. I.e. get of my lazy arse and organise the next (rather expensive) year of my life.

I fear that less sun–bathing, and more doing useful things is the action required…

some motivation for all the finalists out there

in my opinion there are 2 tragedies that regularly occur in human society: death, and people failing to attempt to reach their full potential

so for those who are struggling to concentrate on revision atm:

its your final year at uni
you've spent 3 and a half years to get to this point
and now it all REALLY matters
and i believe you're really quite capable of getting a good mark – since you've already made it this far

anyway – good luck people

shiiiiiny postery goodness


though not as good as Gav's apparently – due to Rich D's quote of: "does it make you moist?". Funnier still if you knew who that was directed at…

hahaha – quotes galore recently


calm before the storm

donno – things just seemed quite chilled the last few days. Haven't started revision yet (thats this weekend) – but have been trying to get gap year sorted – so much to do etc – but surprisingly its not getting to me at all.

Very laid back attitude atm – quite nice. Also fun playing cricket for first time in 5 years – still can bowl and have a bit of a slog at the slower bowlers – all good really.

Yeh – just donno really what to make of this week – enjoying it anyhow

how odd

Couple of really surreal / bizzare days, for several reasons. Hm.

As it turns out – I may have done a very foolish thing (or lots of) – although I am currently inclined to believe that its pretty awesome. And I take all the credit. Mmmwwwwhahahaa. For an unselfish act. And yet so so yay. Bounce

Now looking forward:
– have done my A0 poster
– this is my one week chance to book my gap year: MASSIVELY exciting :D
– the American Journal of Physics (AJP) want to publish our El Nino paper – joy !!!
– graduation registration looks fun….. eek
