we had our first high table dinner last night: complete with latin and other lovely oxford traditions.
1427. that's the year our little lincoln college was built.
and, yes, those wood beams way up there in the ceiling: original.
this place makes it easy to dream and get lost in books
as we walk back and forth between century-old libraries, halls, and professor's offices.
speaking of professors, mine. is. awesome.
first class was today after lunch. i was giddy with anxiety at lunch.
only three others in my class. and we would be meeting oxford style (in our professor's office)
where i would not be able to hide so easily behind so many other students' wit & intellect.
but, the great news is is that i was giddy in class with all of the lovely and interesting things our professor had to say.
i've happily begun my research and studying.
i'm thrilled that everyone is here now.
and i'm even more thrilled to have the "intertube" here in my
very own room where i can skype ceej whenever. i. want.
goodbye twice-a-day peppermint tea. i think it's a pretty good trade-off.
thanks for all of your encouraging words, lovely readers.
this place has quickly grown on me, and now hogwarts makes a lot more sense.
i'm tempted to sneak around "forbidden" areas, and to spend my time in these
lovely old libraries and halls. seriously people. this is what schools everywhere should be.
