Student or Sightseer?

After this week’s group orientation, and after finally getting to see some of the other faces that will be participating in this program, I started to think about what I really want to get out of this course academically. We have all been in overdrive scanning the calendar Brian put together, buying travel books, planning out our free weekends down to the hour… or is that just me? Well despite our enthusiasm for going someplace new, I’m glad we got to switch gears last session and really start thinking about what we are going to be working on the entire month that we are in Oxford. I know I am not the only one giddy about the opportunity to learn in a place like Trinity College, and while I haven’t been hesitant to brag about this to all my friends, it really just hit me what this all means.

"I think I love you," is what was going through my mind on Monday night. As I gazed into the eyes of Jack Bevan, drummer extraordinaire, I could not stop thinking that I loved him! Maybe it was his ferociously swinging arms or his wild and sweaty hair, but above all I honestly think that it was his British-ness.
