I must forewarn you, there has been a sudden surge in Cambridge’s atmosphere as the lull of routine transformed into a flurry of activity. It’s spring break, huzzah!
So come spring break, and after having slept off the exhaustion from the last couple of weeks, my friend I decided to pick a few pages out of our ‘Wreck this Journal’ by Keri Smith and work on them. (I just had an extremely strong urge to reference the images below as you would in an essay. *sigh* You can take the girl out of uni but you can’t take the uni out of the girl!) I HIGHLY recommend getting books by Keri Smith, they’re an incredibly fun way to spend an afternoon!
You’ll remember me mentioning the art assignment in my last post. If you don’t, here’s a little catch up video to brief you about what I’m doing this week:

That just about rounds up my day, but this week promises to have its fair share of exciting events. There’s a paid trip to Thorpe Park coming up (courtesy of one great boss) and a possible visit to Rochester in Kent. I need to make a conscious effort to remember that exams are right around the corner and I have a case study for ‘Lab Techniques’ to write up for right after Easter. Tomorrow should see me doing a lot of revising for exams, and at least starting on this case study!

The facilities at ARU are faultless; they allow each student to flourish in their own way. As a zoologist, I spend a large majority of my time in the Science Centre, but let me introduce you to other facilities on the Cambridge campus too... Read more…
