Newcastle 365: Week 3

Classes officially started on Monday, and if this week has been any indication of what the rest of this year is going to be like, then this year is going to be amazing.

I took my Canon on the field trip, but when we arrived, it was really rainy, so I left it on the bus. And then I decided to invest in some rain gear for my camera so I don’t have to use my phone to take pictures when we find pretty rivers like this one.

I did have my camera on the drive there and back, and while I can’t expect that these pictures will win any awards (pictures taken through the window of a moving vehicle rarely do…), I think they do give you a little glimpse of the beauty of the countryside of Northern England. I spent the whole hour-long drive there and back thinking, “OH MY GOSH, I LOVE THIS PLACE.”

This grad school business is the best inspiration I have ever received! I feel so blessed to be here.

P.S. For those of you who are friends with me on the Book of Faces, I’m trying not to be obnoxious by posting every time I have something new on the blog. So in case you missed them, there were a few extra posts this week that you might find interesting. Or not. But if you are, you can read about my field trip to the university farms, my failed attempt to make some cookies, and the reasons behind my grad school adventures.
