Well, that’s it. My final lecture ever has been and gone, and now it’s the end of term, and I return home on Sunday afternoon. Only one more term remains, most of which will be taken up with revision (AJ, you know you miss the UL times we had, don’t deny it)! In other news, various things have been going on!
Yesterday was the Sedgwick Club conference, which is a new thing this year, I guess inspired by the Imperial one that was on in February. It was a lot of fun, and we had a lot of interesting talks, as well as being able to catch up with the Oxford geologists (some of whom I met when they came down for the annual Geology varsity football match a couple of weeks ago), as well as meeting some Imperial geologists.
Job hunting still isn’t going especially well. A graduate geologist job with a company in Cambridge that I was really hopeful for rejected me this morning which was a bit of a pain, but on the upside, I’ve got a phone interview early next week for a job in Woking, so hopefully that’ll go well! It’d be so handy to have an interesting job already lined up before I graduate, and I’d be able to have a delightfully smooth transition to the real world (where the fun of council tax, mortgages, utility bills and TV licences awaits). This job looks really interesting too, so fingers crossed that I’m lucky!
I’m off to Spain next week for the ninth and final geology field trip of my degree which should be a lot of fun. The rocks are pretty diverse, with everything from metamorphic petrology to palæontology being represented. I’ll bung up some photos of it when I’m back.
