She didn't seem interested when I tried to show her Python, but she immediately took to the Gimp as soon as I showed her it. Weirdly, on one hand she really did not seem to know how to use an actual physical keyboard, almost like she had never seen one before (e.g. she did not know where the return key was), but she intuitively knew how to use the mouse.

Some of you may have noticed that I haven't been posting much over the last few days. There is a simple reason for this; I have finally gone up to university. This morning I, along with 122 other freshers, assembled in the hall for this year's matriculation* ceremony at Selwyn College Cambridge. We all wore our college gowns (black with blue facings) over our suits/dresses (I now love British academic dress with all my heart). Upon our name being called out by the head porter, we made our way to the front of the hall, shook hands with the praelector** and signed away our lives in a blank space as indicted by the admissions tutor. Afterwards we made our way outside for the group photograph, showing all the students in the year plus the master, senior tutor, praelector, head porter and chaplain in a single photograph.

In the days immediately preceding this I have been overwhelmed by a raft of fresher's events, from services in the chapel to parties in communal college buildings. I have also been amazed at the great diversity of the student body of the college, such as discovering that another of the linguists in college is Tashelhiyt Berber, a historian on my corridor is half-Basque, and finding a great new friend in a mixed-Cantonese/Hokkien natsci*** even in the first couple of days. And this is before I even start my scholarly pursuit of linguistics!

That's not to say I've had an entirely positive experience (there have been one or two moments over the weekend where I've felt overcrowded by people, and I've had multiple attacks of imposter syndrome over the last couple of days) but I have managed to overcome each of these in turn, and in spite of these I feel transformed by the last three days.

I can only imagine what the next three years hold in store for me.



*the process by which students are added to the university register at certain universities, including Oxbridge and Harvard.
**a Cambridge specific title referring to those who present students for matriculation and graduation.
***short for natural sciences, Cambridge's highly competitive science degree, combining all three disciplines out of Biology, Physics and Chemistry in the first year before specialisation in later ones.

PS: here's a photo of the college I took on Sunday. From left to right are the chapel, master's house and hall.

Got through my second CET (comité d'encadrement du thèse) meeting, which means I'm cleared to continue my Ph.D. for the next six months and I can breathe a definite sigh of relief. Also got some very good feedback for things to do and try, so I'm really looking forward to the next experiments and doing lots of quality Science.

Equally nice is that I can now book my trip back to the US for Christmas, which I'm kinda already looking forward to.

A few days ago, I ordered a CD on Amazon, and I was told that it would be delivered through ColisPrivé. I was miffed, because ColisPrivé is probably the most incompetent delivery company in France (though the competition is fierce).

To my surprise, the CD was delivered on time and without a hitch.

Partly as a distraction from the awful work I have currently at university yesterday evening I went with many other members of the Cambridge University Guild of Change Ringers to the Thaikhun restaurant across the river from Magdalene, and reminded myself just how much I love Thai cuisine, particularly the green curries.

I am really happy with how my IRC client is coming along - while it still could use more features, it is actually quite usable already (e.g. I have been using it to chat on #isharia on SorceryNet) - and getting code I am working on to work properly always makes me happy.

Because I don't post enough happy things:

I'm friends with a hotel chef. In the year-and-a-half I've known him, he's never cooked for me. So when he called around midday today and was like, "I'm making a Russian dinner, are you free?" I leapt at the chance.

The meal was six courses:
* bliny with sour cream and two kinds of caviar (red and black), vegetable frittata
* the first borscht I've ever liked (I hate beets)
* a salad of fresh pickels
* coulibiac of salmon with salsify and carrots
* strawberries Romanov
* cheese (including a St Albans with the texture of crème anglaise) and groundcherries
plus plenty of vodka and sparkling wine.

I may be up all night with indigestion and reflux, but it was worth it.

I had to look up "salsify" and "groundcherries" and remind myself that "salsify" is not pronounced as if it meant 'to make into salsa', but that sounds amazing!

Now my IRC client has logging and no longer crashes half of the time when you exit - now I just need to implement reconnection, color and text styles, a wider range of server replies, and more CTCP messages.
