I wonder at what point people grow up.

I’m not a “grown up” yet, far from it. But I’m so different to how I used to be.I wonder if there is one discrete event in your life, be it earth shattering or miniscule, that makes you truly identify yourself as an adult. Or whether it slowly creeps up on you and one day you turn around and you have a career and a house and a partner and you go “shit, I’ve grown up”. It’s just something that’s been playing on my mind - I am infinitely more together, grounded, happy, realistic and god knows what else than I was even 2 years ago. I wonder how much I’ll change again before I’m actually an adult.Or maybe I’ll just head for the second star to the right, and straight on ‘til morning.

One is only micrometres wide. The other is billions of light years across.
There is an ancient neo-platonic schema of ‘microcosms and macrocosms’ in natural phenomena. However, this kind of visceral intuition was only substantiated in 1872 by a man named Karl Weierstrass with his foundational calculus for Fractal theory - an infinitely complex, fragmented geometric shape that can be split into parts, each of which is a reduced-size copy of the whole.
Microcosm: A miniature version of an object or entity which is representative of or analogous to a larger one in composition, development, or configuration.
Macrocosm: The whole of a complex structure, as epitomized in a small part of itself.
These two definitions neatly coincide with two characteristics of fractal geometry: that the shape is self-similar and recursive in definition.
While fractals are a mathematical construct, they are ubiquitous in nature (clouds, plants, shells, crystals, feathers, viruses, lightning, galaxies etc.) and only nowadays, with the aid of sophistocated technology are we starting to see how widely distributed these notions are.

Take me back.

Take me back.

Lounging.

Should really be getting ready for rugby.
Instead I’m chilling here in front of E4, feeling rather like a glutton after devouring a hefty portion of the beef stew that’s been in the slow cooker for the better part of 12 hours. Damn it was delicious.
I’m terrified about the amount of work I have to do…

  • 4000 word Literature Review
  • 3000 word Forensic Psych essay
  • Non limited academic Forensic Psych poster
  • 5000 word Thinking Creatively wiki (group project)
  • 3 x 500 word Thinking Creatively reflective blogs 
  • 3 Clinical Psychology lectures to write up
  • 300 pages of Clinical Psych reading
  • A total of about 60 papers to read

Final year is quite frankly fucking me over.

…off to run round in the cold and the mud and forget about everything for 2 hours.
