First proper update from Cambridge

Yup, entering the third week of my last year here. and it's been quite good. 

Was nice - interesting taking the A380. Watched 3 shows - Prince Caspian, Hancock, and one more, cant remember. Interesting watching Prince Caspian - found some scenes familiar, while did not have any impression of others. Took me some time of figuring out where I watched it before, before i realised that had left it on while dozing off on the flight back from shanghai. 

have a very comfortable room this year, with a nice view of a garden. Fridge and sink in the room, while shared kitchen and toilet. So not bathing as often now :S

On top of 2 of 3 courses this year, and attending another 2 more maths courses.
Quantum field theory (on top ~ sorta)
Particle physics (on top ~ sorta)
Quantum condensed matter field theory (arh)
General relativity (maths)
Super symmetry (maths, nice)

There's a project work too that has not quite taken off yet, but hope that it'll work out soon.

Gainfully channeling my energies into a lot of christian stuff - CF (monday, friday nights), Focus (tuesday nights), Ciccu (saturday afternoons). Great to be serving productively. 

Doing the book of Luke now in focus, and John in CF. Good stuff.

Also taking up rowing - can't leave Cambridge without experiencing this for myself. Will be waking up real early on wednessday and thursday mornings. I wonder how long this will last.

No official kids this year, but have a singaporean fresher staying in the same house, and it's nice to be able to pop by someone's room to chill for a when i return. 

Cooked a few times, and went shopping once. It's been nice. 

Stress relieve
Also playing the Command and Conquer pack I brought from singapore. nice way to destress... finished zero hour, and now moving on to the original generals. started half life too! 

yup, that's the stuff that'll mark the sentiments of my last year here... quite well settled generally :)
