I have a new job. I’ll be so sad to leave, but happy to be leaving the hardest job I’ve ever done.
I understand vectors, a little bit.
In six weeks, my exams will be done.
To free time.

*this is life for now.
Spent a long weekend in Paris last week. I was working, so I wasn’t a free agent, but I got to see some wonderful things, eat amazing French salads and pastries and see some art all the same. Can’t complain really.
Moving to Birmingham in three weeks. We have a house to move into finally! Totally empty and furniture-less currently…
Life this week has been a mix of trying to find a house, getting my head round UKCAT stuff and trying to maintain The Thursday Project (to which you are yet to formally introduced I believe!), which is going incredibly well and consuming all of my time…
Going away for five weeks this summer, and only taking my 35mm camera. Oh how proud I feel for making this decision.
My plans for the summer are alllllll coming together, and oh I am just so excited! I’m going on a big road trip, which currently involves Cornwall, France, Italy and Switzerland. Then I’m coming back to my new humble abode in the UK, which is hopefully going to be in Birmingham with Annie. Yippee.
It’s been so sunny and lovely these last two days. I cycled to work in flip flops, and even ate ice cream today. Off the hook.
I had the pleasure of meeting this man yesterday. He talked about the importance of travel, and migration as a natural process for any human being. He also advocated that we are all extraordinary, and we must all be the best that we can be. I am excited to see his adaptation of Benjamin Zephaniah’s Refugee Boy at WYPlayhouse this coming week.
In other news, I had a lovely morning wandering round town yesterday.
(Photos taken in Otley on market day.)
So, decision-making is pretty much done now, since most options were stolen from me last week (university rejections, scholarship rejections blah). But that’s okay! I’m happy to be able to make plans now.
June- stop working, Glastonbury
July- medschool entrance exam, then travel and climb
August- travel, come home, move out
September- find a new job
In other news, I may have found the best chocolate muffin recipe ever. I’ll find and post it.
So. I decided to post this photo of my lovely friend Jos, after seeing this post (bet you can’t guess why…)- http://gracefarson.wordpress.com/2013/01/22/self-survey/
I love your blog, Grace!
To good old Nepal memories.
Some snaps from the mehndi we got in Mahendrapul, Pokhara. Going to draw some pretty designs like this after Thursday’s exam… Ohhh Thursday’s exam, how you are currently ruining my life.
I clearly did something wrong to the only B/W film I took with me on my travels, but some of the photos are still lovely.
I got all my 35mm photographs back yesterday. It was the most exciting thing ever.
Today: work and study.
Here are some of my favourite snapshots of the children at Annapurna Home.
I’ve been MIA for a while. Being home has been super busy. Here’s to the next chapter of life… not a particularly exciting one, but I’ll make the best of it!
Things to achieve by the end of the year:
* apply to medschool
* have some money again
* find a job for next year
* make everything on my baking and cooking lists
* book a trip to France to skiiiii
* knit a hat. Preferably of the cable variety. With a bobble, obviously.
