The Barn last night was very good – saw Mehmet for the first time in ages and we had a ‘mini Olympics’ night which was good fun for all involved. Harry’s today was similarly good, many people turned up and we went to Rachel E’s afterwards for toasties and chat – maybe 20 people went and it was great to get to know people better.
The rest of the day was nice – it was very hot here, perhaps 25 to 28 degrees and the wind was also very hot. I spent the day until 4:30 locked in my room trying to do some work, and I succeeded in the main part although not as much work as I’d have liked to. After Harry’s, I went into Sidney to check my mail and went to see Ellie to have a catch-up. We ended up going on a nice walk and chat until about midnight. Cambridge is all about just randomly meeting up with people and getting to know them better it’s such a privilege to be here.
Jim should be coming here from Oxford tomorrow, as is Rosalind (from London during her half-term) so I’ll probably be busy the next few days just seeing people and socialising. Really ought to start getting down to serious revision soon as my exams are only a few days away… First is my Greek on Thursday.
