I honestly need to carry my camera around with me EVERYWHERE.
Last night was the Rugby World Cup FINAL. England vs South Africa. Needless to say England did not win, but that didn’t stop just about every pub in Newcastle to be full to the brim of people watching the game. I can only imagine the World Cup for Football is worse.
The cheers and the boos were audible across the street and around the corner from most pubs. It was amazing. We didn’t have riots like Boston is prone to. That was nice. Then again, who are they going to attack?? It’s not such a huge rivalry thing. People actually applauded at the end of the match. We were in the pub and people broke out clapping. They weren’t happy, but it showed a side that I did not expect.
On the note of my classes, I am being drowned in learning new programs and trying to remember my statistics from a bazillion years ago. Only mildly painful. I did get one assignment done, and I am going to try and get most of the next one done today. The write up and research bit will have to wait until some point during the week. I can hopefully figure out how to do the two way analysis on Minitab today. I actually miss doing things by hand. I felt so much better than just spending 5 seconds clicking things on a computer program. It’s rather nightmarish really. But it’s okay, it’s fast and right now I don’t want to spend too much time on it.
On a note of being a dork, I went to WHSmith and got the remaining Adventure Series books by Enid Blyton. I devour those things. There are only 8 of them, but I plan on giving them to my mom when she comes to visit. They’re wonderful books and I think everyone should read them. They’re just a really fun read.
Other than that, things are going as planned. . . food is being eaten, overpriced dryers aren’t drying very well and I have lots of tea 🙂
