Friday, 24th January // 1st week of term

Whew. This week has been really tough for several family related reasons. I had really wanted to be posting more but this just wasn’t the time to be doing it. Today was probably my most productive day of the week though - and I’m really glad. I had a tutorial at Nuffield College (a postgrad college), wrote an essay on paternalism and caught up on lecture notes. Arguably I spent too much time gazing at the Rad Cam (top left) but that’s neither here nor there…

It’s all melted by now (and been replaced by lovely little purple flowers i will try to get photos of as well) but a few days ago, it snowed in Oxford! It was honestly just the right sort of snow for photos - enough to make everything look beautiful, not enough that it stuck around long and made you sick of it. There wasn’t really enough settled to play with, though - a few people made a snowman, and one person through a snowball at me, but if we want to do that more we’ll need it to snow again…

now that i’m at college and i haven’t posted very much, i thought i should show you my room! it’s a shared room, there’s another bedroom off to the right for my roommate, and an en suite, and then all this big living space, with two desks and two arm chairs and a fridge and so on, is shared between us! some other rooms in the college are newer singles with balconies and mezzanines, but we seem to have one of the very old, character-filled rooms. Honestly so many of the rooms I’ve seen at Wadham so far have been wonderful, I’m really glad to be living here, and I love the people as well (especially my roommate, she is incredibly, incredibly sweet!)

i’m really upset because i found out that one of my closest friends in coll said that this girl was pathetic when she had a breakdown in second week of michaelmas and this is the guy who i tell all my problems too and now he probably thinks i’m pathetic too and also how awful to call someone pathetic for having a breakdown in a high-stress environment like oxford.

Okay so Brasenose is out of the question since they have a common room reserved for Eton boys and David Cameron went there.

Wadham, however, is the best college for languages, hosts theatre in the college garden, is campaigning for less crusty old white men portraits and more women and poc portraits in halls, has pride flags of all types in the JCR and hosts the annual events of “Wadstock” and “Queerfest”.

Guess where I’m applying?

I wish the Wadham IT services would stop emailing me every day to tell me that my password expires at the end of this month. It just makes me sad.

Finally settled in and unpacked, and so so close to being over my jetlag. I’ve had so much great food already and tried out a couple really awesome pubs like the Three Goats Heads where I tried the oldest bitter (delicious!) in England and the Kings Arm which is 400ish years old. I had my first cider, and I still haven’t been carded but once last night. I visited Blackwell’s (one of the oldest bookshops  in England) and had coffee in the yard of St. Mary’s church.

I love being in Oxford and learning about its history. Everything is so old and so new at once, and the architecture is amazing. As the assistant butler at Wadham college said yesterday when telling us about our college’s history, “if only the walls could talk.“ And I wish they could for the number of great minds who have gathered and collaborated here, not least of which including the architect Christopher Wren, and the founders of the Royal Society (who founded the Society in Wadham’s dining hall).

Speaking of Dining Hall’s, I’ve gotta rush to breakfast or I’ll miss the good stuff. Bye!
