Today I've read a whole 54 pages of shit that I really don't understand. The concept would seem simple, 'the sedimentary record of sea-level change' but apparently it's a diverse and detailed subject not helped by the plethora of new words, most of which I physically couldn't fit on the back of my hand - the most common one so far being 'chronostratigraphical'. I get that word now (it's tattooed in my brain now, much like 'montmorillonite' was last year) but it's a constant stream of new words. I know for sure it would be easier to digest if I didn't have to check the meaning of every 6th word or simply solidify it's meaning in my head.
Our week in pictures:
Still day 3, we walked a few hundred meters down to the beach, it was a nice beach - would have been lovely to ride my mountain bike on it...

Here's a brief picture summary of my summer to date:

With the beautiful Ria nestled up against my chest under one arm I simply stared into space smiling, knowing that this was the epitome of youth, one of those moments that I'll remember forever more because it just felt right.
I mentally questioned for a few moments whether to mention this realization, to publicize the feeling and if doing so would ruin it. Some events and thoughts are better kept in your head but this was one to be shared, I knew how I felt and wanted Ria to know that too. It didn't ruin the moment at all. This was a special night.

I've just taken far too long thinking about someone's comment about Strava in a context of proving oneself. He's right, playing with leaderboards is fun but if you want to show what you're made of do it properly.
Interesting thought, and I like what he said about pictures and photographers too! Obviously neither strava or pictures are wrong, it's just good to have a subtle reminder to take things as they are and not believe things to be bigger than that.

I've been metaphorically staring into the mirror a lot lately, and I'm not sure if I like the contorted and strained reflection. I feel a bit like I've been concentrating too much on what monopoly square I've landed on and not looking up to see the board in front of me.
The blog has been quiet lately because I've been so busy loving/living my daily life. I've been out almost constantly so haven't even turned my computer on. This will be a trend for the rest of summer - y'know that period I've been lusting for for the past 2 years. Speaking of which I'm kind of keen to crack on and get the degree finished regardless of summer, just so I can tick that box, close the case, and then finally look to my next task. I really need to plan out my future better but I've not found much inspiration since the Welbeck drama. Nothing I can feel my heart burning for.

No idea about the film, I've never seen it.
My neighbour gave up trying to bully me because I give as good as I get. Now that my sister has a new car he's tried the same strategic bin positioning with her. I won't have anyone trying to hassle my sister so I fixed it...
If it helps, the bin will still get emptied in the morning :')
