Newcastle 365: Week 5

Things I learned this week:

  • Honey Bees are really, really cool
  • Swans think they are sneaky
  • Sometimes missing the bus is okay
  • Battenburg Cake is delicious
  • Sometimes, microwaves and glass don’t get along
  • If your neighbor burns his dinner and sets off the fire alarm, make sure you pee before you leave the building because you might have to hold it for a while. (Just kidding.) (Sort of.)
  • There are multiple species of earthworms
  • Why skinny jeans are a necessary evil
  • Why there are cows in the city parks
  • How to play “Conkers” with horse chestnuts
  • Grad school is awesome. (I knew this already, but it’s nice to relearn it on a daily basis.)

Oh, and P.S. I’m going to Portugal in December. Say whaaaaat?!
