Well, quite a bit has happened since I last wrote in this here place. As you’ll no doubt be aware from my last blog, I went to Paris with my friend Caroline for a few days after exams. Paris was generally nice, if rather expensive. Saw all the usual sights, went to Disneyland, checked out some of the Parisian pubs and cafés, and had a quite pleasant couple of days. Photos are up, as ever, in the photo gallery.
After Paris, a few days disappeared somewhere along with final week festivities, and then it was time for me to head down to Wales to pick up my new car, a 1998 Suzuki Baleno 1.6. With only 70,000 miles on the clock, the price I paid for it is really rather good! A lot cheaper to insure than my old Escort, too. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to actually drive it back up to St Andrews, as I had to send a form off to the DVLA before I could tax the thing… rather annoying. So I had to make alternative arrangements to get back up to St Andrews, and to get all my stuff back down to Wales this coming Monday. I’ve already offloaded a carload of stuff that I want to store in St Andrews, need to finish packing today and tomorrow, ready to head down for the summer. I’ll be in Wales until the start of August, with a trip up to St Andrews in a few weeks for the Graduation Ball (while I’m not graduating this year, quite a few of my friends are). Next week will also see me start properly on my Google Summer of Code project – due to the general hecticness of the past week or so, I haven’t been able to get much done with it yet, but that shall change shortly. 🙂
Finally, I got my exam results back this afternoon. Generally quite happy with them, I think for the most part they were better than I was expecting. Got a 17 in the team project, too, which I think we’re all rather pleased about. And that’s another year of university over and done with… just one more to go!
