    Hello! It’s been a while how are you !!!??

    I thought the transition from high school to uni was very nice, you have so much freedom over what courses you take in university so you’ll always be enjoying whatever it is you’re studying. I think this depends on what school you go to though. Er I guess I took a bit of time to respond and now it’s December but either way good luck on those results! Life has been more of the usual for me, lately I’ve been absolutely in love with an album called ‘Ceres and Calypso in the Deep Time’ a shoegaze/dreampop album.

    It’s meant to sound really dreamy which I always love and feel ecstatic listening to it (the most popular song is ‘Pangaea Girls’ I wonder what you think?). The album follows a time travelling white seal named Ceres, and her human friend Calypso. they journey through the Mesozoic period, starting with the aftermath of the Permian-Triassic extinction event straight through the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods and finishing with the Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction event. Lots of references to dinosaurs and prehistoric plants, so it’s been a lot of fun learning about it all, hell, I never knew turtles have been around since the Triassic period?! But it’s mentioned in the song ‘White Seal’ which takes place early in the album, (“a giant turtle offers you a ride”) so I had to look it up of course, I think it’s a reference to Proganochelys! A lot of the lyrics are super cheesy too, and I always love it “I write our names in the sand”, “I’m a leaf shaped shadow, you’re the sun, dear one” etc.

    And wow I completely forgot cops and robbers is a thing, yeah we played that a lot in primary school! I even played some hand-clapping games like you mentioned, “stella ella ola clap clap clap say yes chico chico” is a tune I remember too well. back then playing the guitar was a really big thing for my friends and myself, that defined most of grade 5/6 for me! I’m pretty meh at skiing, so there were never any tricks or anything of the sort, though I had a lot of friends who were really into that kind of stuff with both skiing and snowboarding, and as I mentioned, skateboards were huge so people were constantly trying out new tricks. nowadays there isn’t any sport playing from me - I spend too much sitting in front of computer screens

    Thanks for the birthday wishes! I got a cake and ate it, but nothing terribly special, it’s mostly just another day for me I find. I honestly dunno what kind of movie recommendations I could make because I have no idea what your tastes are (I guess it would help if I knew what some of your favourite films were?) but ‘Annihilation’, ‘Inception’ and ‘Blade Runner 2049’ are all really popular so it might be worth checking them out? ‘Lost in Translation’ and ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’ are both great romance films, ‘Stalker’ (by Tarkovsky) and ‘Last Year at Marienbad’ are both really famous avant-garde ‘art films’ if you’re into that sort of thing.

    As far as I know things like the effects of hedge funds aren’t really studied in the social sciences, perhaps in economics, but that’s usually less about politics and more about alpha and portfolio management or something, I’m not too familiar with eco, it’s an area I’m planning on reading more about in the future! Outside of watching movies how are you spending this break? You’ll be really busy in college so I’m guessing you’re making the most out of this moment???

    HI SOPHIE!! :D I knew your birthday was sometime in late November so I went back to check our message history, but it seems I'm a few days late yet again this year, nooooo... ;__;

    Still, I'm going to wish you a happy birthday all the same!! I hope you had a great time! <3

    oh, I didn't realize you responded so I never got around to reading this until a couple days ago, and now that it's the weekend and I have a bit more time I can finally lounge around and type this---also wow, a month and two weeks for your breaks?? it is about 3 months here, but people have argued that it's damaging to have a long break 'cause you end up forgetting a lot of your highschool coursework over such a lengthy absence! and you're in uni now right?? how's the transition been?

    my mum did make me take swimming/skating lessons which I hated but if I think about it I feel that I enjoyed a lot of physical activities when I was younger even if I wasn't too good at them. lots of tag during recess, camping during breaks, dodgeball, and I loved skiing - also it's funny that you bring up badminton, yes that was probably my most played and enjoyed sport, in a more traditional sense of the word (ie excluding dodgeball and whatnot); I shyed away from and generally didn't like football/baseball/basketball. I'd be curious hearing about your experiences here, was it much of the same? when I was young all my friends were boys and I never really paid any attention to what the girls in the class were doing, I think of a lot of the trends that swept through my social circle, videogames, skateboarding, guitar playing, and I don't suppose those were popular among your friends? ofc you must've played lots of pokémon since you're here and you did mention water guns at one point?? outside of pokémon, the big games then for kids I knew were halo and call of duty

    ehh I totally derailed my train of thought there, we were talking about Debussy, yeah? Clair de lune is great, it reminds me of his arabesque - his work along with Ravel's get called 'impressionistic' a lot which I think is kinda fitting even if he didn't like the label. october 17 was pretty nuts for me this year, I had a 75 minute presentation worth 70% of that course's mark the evening of my birthday - ah it was a math class; the sheer thrill and challenge of the whole experience of presenting was riveting, it's been such a long time since I've given a presentation! I'm glad you liked Good Will Hunting btw, It's always been a favourite for me I did talk quite a bit about it before, have you been watching anything else?

    but as far as history goes, lately I've actually been really curious about very recent history, probably not even considered history at this point with how recent it's been, we're talking 80s, 90s up till now. though I've been fascinated with it all for a long time, about a week ago I read a very curious book called The Man Who Solved the Market: How Jim Simons Launched the Quant Revolution, Simons was a very accomplished mathematician who hired a bunch of other math/computer science people to try and build models predicting market prices, the end result was Renaissance Technologies, arguably the most successful hedge fund on the planet, though they have competitors like TGS Management and spinoffs like Edgestream. outside of having a fascinating history they're also had enormous influence on American politics, I dunno if people in Australia pay attention to Trump, but the former co-ceo of Ren Tech Robert Mercer and his daughter, Rebekah, practically set up Trump's victory! Robert Mercer funded Breitbart and Cambridge Analytica, and early into the race when Trump wasn't doing too well, the Mercers had a lot of their friends (Steve Bannon, Kellyanne Conway, David Bossie) take over key positions in Trump's campaign staff. I guess managing a hedge fund gives you a good skillset to judge these kinds of things, as well as the money needed to orchestrate it all. most fascinating for me has been how many people I've talked to irl who have never heard of the Mercers, or even Renaissance Tech. These quantitative hedge funds have got such an enormous influence on the world, what with how many billions of dollars their firms pulls of of thin-air, and many of them are so secretive. anyways what have you been reading? I'm curious if your reading habits have changed now that you're in uni??

I don't know why but today I'm in the mood to talk about my favourite dinosaurs! Dinosaurs are incredibly cool creatures that I've always been interested in studying so what better than to dedicate a blog entry to them? Today, I'll be talking about the Velociraptor but I will be probably blogging about some of my other favourite dinosaurs from the three time periods in which they existed - the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods in later entries. For now, feel free to enjoy this slightly...

I have another week of holidays to go so I thought I'd ask - what are some good shows or movies to watch? I like most genres outside of horror so recommend whatever. :]

Five years ago, I bought a small orange and white furball from the pet store and called it Toast. Today, I lost the guinea pig I'd loved to old age and I'm throwing exam revision aside to come to terms with her loss.

She was sick over the past few days though she'd gotten better. We wrapped her in one of my old jumpers and my sister thought she's recover just fine.

Only after dinner was I told that she died. They buried her in the backyard and held a small funeral...

Hiya! I'm going to Europe for three weeks starting from the 11th till the 3rd next year so if I disappear off the face of the Earth, that's why. Anyhow, I'd like to ask if people would know some good places to visit where we're going?

We're going to the following cities, each for 3-5 days:

- London
- Paris
- Venice
- Rome
- Milan
- Zürich

We're already going to most of the iconic places (e.g. Eiffel Tower and Big Ben)...
