Firefighters battle 10-alarm blaze in Cambridge - The Boston Globe
Firefighters are on scene at a 10-alarm fire in Cambridge, where at least one building is in flames, according to tweets from fire officials.

For those that asked I am safe. The fire broke out about a mile and a half away from my house and is now contained, though still burning. 

Over 100 people have lost everything to their names and more than that will be displaced until the flames are quelled. The background noise in town tonight is helicopters and sirens and I ask that everyone please keep an eye out for places to donate and fundraising for the people who lost their homes tonight.

The Humans- Matt Haig

Rating: 9/10

“It’s not the length of life that matters. It’s the depth. But while burrowing, keep the sun above you.”

This book is centred on an extraterrestrial inhabiting a mathematical genius known as Professor Andrew Martin of Cambridge University. Martin has just unlocked the mysteries of the universe that will guarantee a giant technological leap for mankind. The alien species known as Vonnadorians feel that this overwhelming breakthrough simply cannot be entrusted to such volatile and backwards creatures that inhabit Earth- humans. So the alien is put in his body to erase any chance of this epiphany from being released.

The book really analyses the way in which humans interact from a superior and pretentious perspective. The alien does not understand the reasoning behind emotions nor the necessity to comply to societal norms. From the start of this book to the end it will take you on a strong emotional experience as the alien learns what it means to be a human.

It is the perfect mixture of comedy and romance with an unexpected interjection of science fiction and existential questioning. It explains that sorrow and pain is simply a necessary part of human experience.

For that reason I would recommend this book it is well worth the time and it’ll certainly make you laugh but in saying that it is not a book for the light-hearted.

12 Sept 16 – 19 days until I return to Cambridge for second year, and I’m slowly easing myself back into early mornings ready for the 9amers fuelled by last minute caffeine, key text reading for modules ready for the supervision lists, and dissertation idea(s) planning for the proposal to be submitted sometime around Lent/Easter term next year. ⭐️
