One last post before I leave this afternoon to drive to Logan airport- It’s been a whirlwind 48 hours of packing, running out at 10PM to the nearest Target for a webcam, and randomly waking up in the middle of the night remembering that I hadn’t packed my socks. However, the good news is that this mess of stuff:has now found it’s way into two suitcases and a carry-on (mostly though my mom’s incredible packing skill, which I definitely did not inherit). I’ll be arriving in Oxford tomorrow morning around 9, and after a ‘Fresher’s Week’ orientation of fun and festivities my classes begin! I’ve already been contacted by my tutors for my primary (Shakespeare) and my secondary (a history class on Elizabethan England). I already have an essay due for my Shakespeare Primary next week; it shows exactly how long I’ve been on summer vacation (almost 5 months!) that I’m actually excited to have homework again. I’ll be living in a duplex that’s about a 30 minutes walk from campus, so I’m a little nervous to be ‘off campus’ (purely in the Holy Cross context, since last year I lived literally 25 feet from Hogan Center) but the independence will also be exciting.
I keep glancing at the clock to make sure I’m not losing track of time- I still have a million little things to do before I go- but I’m on my way!
