Off to Scotland tomorrow! (Also, reading progress)
This will be a very quick post, since I’m supposed to be packing my PC away before too long.
Tomorrow, I’ll be riding trains for seven hours. When I finally stop travelling, I’ll be at St Andrews. I’m going to be at St Andrews a lot for the next four years, as I’ll be starting a PhD in astrophysics there very shortly. Needless to say, I’m feeling very excited – but also more than a little nervous. I can’t help buy think I’m going to feel very stupid for the first year or so: after all, I’m going to be surrounded by doctors and professors of physics, whereas I’m still green as can be in the grand scheme of things.
Still, on the whole I’m looking forward to this, and I’m very grateful to be able to go.
On the reading front, I recently finished The Bite On The End Of The Line and have now moved on to The Star Beast, by Robert Heinlein. The latter has proved to be very, very good so far; I got through the first half in only two days, and will almost certainly finish it on the train tomorrow. I’ll have reviews up for both once things settle down. If anyone has read either, I’d be keen to hear your views.
Until next time, all.
