*photos here! I write to you from a stunning studio apartment in London, which my friend Debbie and I have rented to spend New Year’s. Twenty-ten, my friend! Can you believe it? We’re almost officially out of the naughties!(2000s) After spending a week of skiing in La Plagne in the French Alps, some parts of me are still readjusting to the lower altitude and urban life - a very weird...

Off on a ski trip to La Plagne, France with Imperial College Singaporeans tomorrow! Exciting times.

I kid you not! 8th week of Michaelmas was at the very beginning of December, and being in the Pembroke College Chapel Choir, we got to sing carols three times: once for the 8th week Sunday Evensong carol service, once for the Christmas...
The way John Mayer pulls off each song is awesome. Talk about knowing your industry.
Michaelmas Week 9
The term has officially ended - a whirlwind 8 weeks in which I’ve somehow accomplished the humanly impossible: 15 essays. 15 essays?! In 8 weeks?! And permanent students do this 3 times an academic year, for 3 years straight?! No wonder they automatically get a Master’s degree a year after graduating. Gosh. It’s been much quieter around Pembroke, with all the regular students...

So I've pretty much been the worst "travel...
…And I had no good reason. And that was the point. The learning point, I mean. The reason why I did not regularly write was the same reason I did not regularly practice music, I did not regularly exercise, I did not eat at regular times or eat regular things, I did not sleep at regular times (1am-5am being the paper-writing night norm), I did not wake up at regular times, I did not write...
I did go hear Shakira speak at the Union after all, and it was great! She’s clearly passionate about children’s education. @beirutistupid
Debating whether or not to go see Shakira speak at the Oxford Union. I’d rather see her -perform-!
