So I'm sat here a few days before I head back to Bristol for the 2nd term of this year and I'm wondering what I should write about. I guess Christmas has been and gone and it seems to have flown by, almost a month has passed since then. It was a small affair this year with just me and Mum at home with our three cats. Although there were only two of us we had enough food to last for ever, we're still eating some of it now. I was most impressed this year as I decided to make a baked alsaka for dessert, something I have never done before and it turned out almost exactly as I had imagined it to. We also had two christmas cakes, one the traditional fruit variety and the other a red velvet decorated to look like a wreath.
I've been back to Bristol for a couple of days to do my stats exam which I'm so glad is out of the way and I never have to see again 'fingers crossed'. Statistics is not my strong point and having an exam on it was not something I overly enjoyed. I'll be heading back to the rainy west on Sunday to start the new term which promises more lab days along with my dissertation. I'm actually kind of looking forward to writing it strangely. My lab project is to do with the sense of smell and the brain which is quite interesting although a lot of my uni friends would beg to differ.
I have a couple of side projects going on at the moment one of which is a photography blog, I don't know if it is any good but I quite enjoy posting on there www.gwinneyphotos.blogspot.co.uk. I'm mainly putting animal photos and travel photos on there although the odd one or two of something else may pop up from time to time. It's pretty new so I'm still getting used to it really. I also have an instagram account where quite a few of my photos are lurking, I'm using the same user name there as I am on here so I'm easy to look up. The aforementioned baked alsaka makes an appearance on there I believe, along with cat photos and travel ones too.
So other than hanging around with my cats, writing an essay and sending out a lot of emails there isn't too much going on. I've just been busy doing things I guess. I even went swimming the other day which was nice, although it made me think of when I swam in the sea in Vancouver. I think i might still have travel withdrawal from Canada, as all I really want to do is plan more adventures. There might be one in the pipeline who knows.
