I have already posted this on Facebook (119 likes!) and on Twitter. I'm sorry, LiveJournal, it's just that you're more effort than the other social networks I use. But you'll always be my first!

Anyway. I have, as of this week, been given an unconditional offer by the University of Leicester to study for a PhD in ‘The Role of Substorms in Solar Wind Magnetosphere-Ionosphere Coupling’ under Prof. S.E. Milan! Which is pretty amazing, I think. I'm really looking forward to it – I start in mid-January and it will definitely last until the end of 2014, if not a little bit longer (for writing up, etc). I'm really excited to begin a new chapter of my life, and I'm also super-excited by the prospect of learning more. Being away from university for more than a vacation made me realise just how much I miss that aspect of my life, now that it's gone.

So, yeah. I will be based in Leicester again as soon as I find somewhere to live, and as a result of now having a paid position I will be able to attend Satellite 3, which will be the first Scottish convention and the first Satellite that I've attended. I'm really, really looking forward to it.

It's been around three weeks since my last update to LiveJournal. I was going to try to update weekly, but hey, real life always interrupts, doesn't it? The issue is that I can't really remember anything that's happened since then. But I'll try to piece together some tidbits for your reading pleasure.

So one thing that definitely happened is that I wrote the vast majority of my TAFF trip report, which is all very exciting. My trip took me through Toronto, Seattle, Lake Tahoe, Renovation (Worldcon) and San Francisco, and it will be comprised of six main chapters (Renovation gets two to itself), plus additional writing about Renovation from a variety of fans, most of whom I need to chase for contributions (although [livejournal.com profile] jamesb, [livejournal.com profile] fringefaan and Warren Buff have already written stuff for it).

(Incidentally, if any of the fans that I don't give LJ tags to in this post have LiveJournal, can someone please let me know? I met a lot of fans during my TAFF trip that I haven't associated with LJ handles yet, and it's distressing me. Thanks!)

This is all due to be published in a veritable smorgasbord of fanzines over the next few months, which I'm really rather excited about. In order:

I just need to go through and edit the Toronto chapter for Banana Wings (deadline 10th October) and then write the second chapter on Renovation for SF/SF (deadline 20th October), and that's all handled and it's time to put it all together and start asking fan artists for contributions on pages that look a bit lonely.

On the subject of TAFF, we have announced the candidates for the 2012 Eastbound TAFF trip to Odyssey 2012! They are Warren Buff, [livejournal.com profile] kgkofmel and Jacq Monahan, and each candidate looks to be a strong one, so it ought to be a really good race. If you fancy voting (or just generally giving some money to TAFF) then head on over to the unofficial TAFF website and download a ballot form for more details and information. We also now have a TAFF Facebook page and a TAFF Twitter feed for people to engage with, and, as ever, we remain at [livejournal.com profile] taffnews.

Approximating fanac, we also have the trip I took to the Out of This World exhibition at the British Library with [livejournal.com profile] sarkywoman recently. It was very awesome; there was a giant tripod and a talking robot and headphones with music on them and a decent variety of books in boxes just waiting for you to read about them. We also met [livejournal.com profile] jamesb and [livejournal.com profile] despotliz, which was awesome. At some stage I must write a short article about it, possibly for Mostly Harmless – we shall see! I've also recently written two articles for The Drink Tank and I have an idea for a Banana Wings article, so we'll see how that goes.

Outside of fandom, I went to Leicester last weekend to record a special feature for a comedian's DVD. No, really. There's a comedian from Leicester called Jim Smallman, and he once played a gig at the university comedy club. He was pretty funny and had an awesome tattoo of a Pacman ghost, so I figured I'd go ask if he had a YouTube channel or a DVD or anything similar. He was extremely flattered that I'd asked, and so he added me on Facebook. Next time he played the comedy club, it was the day prior to my birthday and he had the entire audience sing to me, because I was his friend. He also once played a gig in my kitchen and got us tickets to see him compere a comedy club he helped to run, as well as giving us freebies for a show he played as part of the Leicester Comedy Festival.

So when he tweeted saying that he was doing a DVD recording, I knew I had to go; when he found out me and my housemate Josh were going, he immediately said he wanted us as a special feature on the DVD. The show that was recorded was hella funny, and I met Josh's colleague Megan (who got the job I applied for, grrr) which was pretty cool. It was nice to spend some time in Leicester, too, since I was able to visit a couple of people and say hi!

Other than trips to Leicester and London, not a lot has happened in the recent past. I've applied for some jobs (with Ford, and a PR agency in London called Hotspot) and I'm applying for some more (one is a fundraising position with CASE which would be pretty interesting and has potential for travelling around Europe). I'm also looking at the European Space Agency's Young Graduate Trainees scheme, which is aimed at people at my level of qualification, so that'd be awesome. And I'm going to London this weekend for a job fair, staying with [livejournal.com profile] mokatiki and [livejournal.com profile] snowking, which should be really cool, too.

I'm currently contemplating writing a blog article on Chrome for my Proper Blog on my Website. I really want to move over to using it as my primary browser, but the ecosystem of add-ons and plugins and extensions just seems to be so much less developed than the Firefox ecosystem, and I would really miss a couple of extensions. However, it's so much more Mac-like and lightweight, to the point where I have switched to it properly on my laptop. It's currently playing on my mind.

Claire Brialey won Best Fan Writer which I was lucky enough to present to her, whereas the Drink Tank took it home for Chris Garcia and James Bacon. Great results all around! :D

So I've been totally crap at updating this, which is entirely my own fault. Sorry to all of you who were looking forward to regular updates! I've been diligently writing aspects of my TAFF report in the interim, though, which I suspect is why I haven't been blogging as much as I'd hoped (well, that and not having cellular Internet...not being able to update without Wi-Fi really takes its toll!).

So what have I been doing, I hear you cry? Well, having a fantastic time! I arrived in Toronto on Tuesday evening and spent some time chilling with my excellent hosts, [livejournal.com profile] asfi and [livejournal.com profile] c_crockett. They have been cooking me awesome, awesome food and generally looking after me really well!

I have so far been to St Lawrence Market, the Ontario Science Centre, the Merril Collection, the CN Tower, the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) and the pub (for a fan meeting!). I have written about 3500 words of my trip report so far, and I'm trying to avoid posting it up here so that when it does arrive it isn't just rehashed material, but I will try to keep you all updated anyway!


The photograph above is of some luminescent rocks that are housed at the ROM. Rather oddly they're almost right next to a really bright lightbulb which makes getting decent photographs quite difficult, but they're still very impressive (as is the rest of the minerals collection!). I really enjoyed today, it was ace!

I was woken at 5am today by a call from Rock Kitchen Harris, a PR firm based in Leicester, inviting me to an interview for the post of PR co-ordinator. Unfortunately they appear not to have seen the bit in my application where I say I'm not free until 29th August, since they've invited me to interview on 11th/12th... Need to load some credit into Skype and call them to see what my options are. Still pretty happy I got an interview though, that's always a nice ego boost.

One last thing. There's a party tomorrow night in order to let me meet lots more Toronto people, and we are setting up a webcam so that non-Torontonians can join in the fun! Just visit my Justin.tv page tomorrow from 7pm EDT (that's 12am BST for Britons).

Til next time!

TAFF

I won the TAFF race to go to Renovation.

Congratulations to my worthy opponents, all of whom would have been good people to represent British fandom in the United States of America. Unfortunately I appear to have won, but hopefully some will run again in 2013, when I'm handing over the baton.

I'm absolutely over the moon that I won and I have many ideas for what I want to do, both during my trip and afterwards, but one thing I wanted was people's suggestions for fannish stuff that's happening around North America close to the time of Renovation. I've seen Pi-Con in Enfield, CT, but that's a long way from Reno and so I'm not sure it'd be practical (a Greyhound could get me there but would leave on Tuesday morning and arrive on the Saturday morning of Pi-Con itself, whilst a flight might get expensive...).

I want to visit and meet Bay Area fandom, which is something I've wanted to do for a while now (enhanced by the nomination of [livejournal.com profile] johnnyeponymous) and I'd quite like to visit the Vegrants, too; Catherine Crockett (I don't know her LJ) has offered to put me up in Toronto, too. Anywhere I should specifically look at visiting, in my readers' opinion? Or anyone that's been neglected on recent TAFF trips? I can't make any promises at this stage but I'll be trying my damnedest to come up with a good itinerary that takes in a lot of different fen after my examinations have concluded (the start of June, then).
