Let the pictures begin.

October 6th, 2011 etmasi13

Since I’m still running around Oxford like a madwoman trying to run errands, make all orientation activities, sign up for all possible activities (the fresher’s fair today was massive with hundreds and hundreds of potential activities/ societies/ clubs to join), meet new people, etc, I don’t have the time to make a proper post. (That was very British-sounding of me. I am becoming influenced already! I’ve been saying ‘pardon’ everywhere!) BUT, I’m including several good shots I’ve taken so far so you all get an idea of how incredible this place is!

A necessary cheesy shot in front of a British telephone booth was necessary. With the lovely Sophia and Kelly (left to right), of course as well!

The architecture here is unreal.

Ben’s Cookies: a shop on High St. with the most incredible, savory, delicious, mouth-watering, amazing, wondrous, magical, PERFECT cookie I have ever had in my entire life. This is no exaggeration. The first words out of my mouth after I had one bite? “This is not real life.”

Shepard & Woodwards: the store where I got my “commoner’s gowns” – I’m going to refrain from explaining this traditional Oxford formal uniform because it is too awesome to not reveal in a surprise picture the first time I wear them. This shop has also has some great Mansfield and Oxford gear I’ll have to invest in!

I really feel as though my room is coming into place. Today I printed 39 photos at Tesco (an amazing, well-priced grocery store/CVS-like mecca) to cover my previously stark cork board and I feel so much more at home.

Disregarding the curtains that resemble the lovely color of vomit, I’m really excited about the decor of my bed and walls. I went to a poster sale today (any 3 posters for 10 pounds; not shabby!) and have adorned my walls. It’s amazing how filling up some white wall space makes your room a hundred times cozier!

Lastly: YAY, the gorgeous campus of Mansfield College, Oxford! Holy Cross is beautiful but wow… doesn’t get much better than this.

That about wraps it up for now. Cheers!
