Today I’m attending a graduation ball*. It’s my second one. Last time I was graduating with my MSci in Physics and I knew basically the entire graduating class. This year, most of us who picked up MScis last time around are now collecting their PhDs. Seriously, most of them – although several went to other… Continue reading Grad ball outfit plans
A while ago I signed up for Bike&Go, a scheme which allows you to rent bikes outside train stations. On my first trip, we cycled the short distance to The Milk Barn, a local dairy where you can buy homemade ice cream.
