In brief...

I'm a Nature-lover, aspiring conservationist, and wannabe traveller in search of outdoor adventure.
My interests vary from conservation to education to heritage to Nature (biodiversity & wildlife) to outdoor activities to life in general.
They occupy most of my waking moment.
Do read my blogs, follow me on Twitter (@jocelynesze) and friend me on Facebook (subject to my discretion). Visit my Nature blog, Nature Rambles, at http://natureramble.wordpress.com.

Nat Sci pains.

Because we live in a different world.

Was trying to Google information about 'alien species' (which I usually prefer to call invasives for that reason) for my essay, and typed 'Why have alien', and Google suggested 'not contacted us' amongst a host of other extraterrestrial-related questions.
Which reminded me about how I was whining about a really boring lecture on dating fossils, and realised that the word 'dating' usually means something different. And also when I wanted to whine about having had enough of modelling over Christmas. Fortunately/unfortunately I only do the 'boring' kind of modelling, which involves a lot of reading mathematical/computational texts, running codes repeatedly (because I'm fail) and general teeth-gnashing and head-bashing. But I generally do quite like modelling, once I understand it. Just not the kind that requires me to be in public eye.
