This week has mostly been rather quiet, as I've been spending a lot of time in the lab (hence the lack of blog posts - I'm trying to stay away from my computer and the temptation of internet procrastination!). There were a few interesting moments, however.
Last night, a few friends and myself took a midweek break for cocktails and pizza at one of our favourite haunts - Trumpet Tree!
The Honours student that I mentored for the Organic Chemistry course over the last month surprised me this morning with a bunch of my favourite flowers! She's awesome. (Although I did have to raid the lab for a substitute vase to keep them fresh until I went home...)
Stellenbosch has gotten incredibly quiet, with everyone that wasn't away for the varsity vacation now away for the Easter weekend. I think I'm the only person in my apartment block this evening - it's rather creepy. I'm going in to work tomorrow, but after that I'm looking forward to going to my parents house for Easter. Least of all because I miss being able to make these: (cocktail-making kit added to my wishlist!)
