If you had told me this time last year, or the year before that (in fact, any year!) I would not believe you when saying that I have just finished my first week here as a student at Oxford University.
Before the course officially starts in October, many of us medieval history students are taking a three-week intensive Latin course. Although the thought of taking this Latin course scared me immensely before arriving, I’m starting to get into the swing of things. I guess the hardest thing for my mind to get around is all the grammar, which we have been doing A LOT of.
Besides the Latin and many headaches from over thinking (it’s been a while for me!), I am loving my time here at Oxford. Oxford is such a pretty city, full of architectural history that makes aimlessly wandering around the various streets and passages really enjoyable. There are also so many pubs, which I’m sure I’ll be frequenting soon!
As I was settling into life as a student here, I was blessed to have my parents with me for a few days. Despite the weather being pretty grim, it was lovely to explore the city and be to be fed! Here are just a few photos that my Dad took whilst here this week.
I’ll be keeping you all posting on my continuing adventure here at Oxford University!
