Well it’s been a stressful couple of months, but today my samples are finally getting run through the mass spectrometer and by tomorrow I might actually have some results to show my supervisor!

Gosh, after this I can only imagine how hard Honours will be. At least I’ve had some practice now though.

So my partner and my friend teamed up and finally convinced me to get an instagram account.
My account is VegFem, if you wanted to find me. I might post there more than I do here, I’m still getting used to it though.

Lazy stroll down to the park to finish of a great weekend off.
Although I probably should be doing some revision.

The view from our window in Melbourne. The Festival Statesmen went over there to compete in the inaugural National Aus-Aca Championships and had a bunch of fun watching all of the other great a-cappella groups from all around Australia.

The second photo is of Ormond Hall in Villiage Melbourne, where we performed. Here’s our set:

We also took the awards for Best Large Ensemble and National A Cappella Champion for our division! 

The final shot is from the plane ride back into Adelaide at dawn this-morning, following some night-time shots from the last couple of nights, and the post box at the top of Eureka Tower.

Some of the sights and meals from my trip to Melbourne this weekend, including the room I shared with my friend at Parkview Hotel, Federation Square, the amazing vegan buffet available at Gopal’s Vegetarian, the complimentary pizza I ate in the streets after the restaurant completely failed to make my order in the ninety minutes we had to spare before we needed to walk to the theatre to catch Wicked and finally a couple of the burgers I found at Burger Edge and Lord of the Fries.

We hooked up the Wii last night and I made a Mii for the first time. It looked way too much like me, my girlfriend and I crack up laughing every time we see it!

A collection of photographs documenting the lab work mentioned in my pervious post.

Looking for leaves in 6000 year old lake sediments. I’m learning so much and having a lot of fun.

I went outside!
I haven’t posted in a while, my girlfriend and I joined a gym nearly two weeks ago and so I’ve been spending a lot of time in there with her and one of our friends. When I’m not there I’m at uni either in class or working in the lab, so this field trip to Hallet Cove was a great chance to get out in the fresh air, and it was such a perfect day for it.
