|What I love about Oxford
||[Feb. 16th, 2007|01:32 am]
One of the things I really love about Oxford, believe it or not, is the late-night tute-sheet crisis. I know the actual process isn't much fun, but I love walking through the college when there's nobody about when I've finished. Nuffield lawn is slightly spooky in the middle of the night—there're no lights, and it looks as if it goes on past the trees forever. And then there was the first day of snow in Oxford, when I was working in the library until 3am, and when I came down, the snow was about as thick as it's been, and I was the first person to walk in it.
Don't get me wrong—I hate losing sleep to get this or that piece of work in on time. But sometimes, it does have its advantages.
