The start of week two has marked no adventures, which I’m comfortable with.
Mondays start only in the afternoons for us here, by which I mean that the actual Session only begins at 3pm. That doesn’t mean we get to go in late or anything, it just means that your ability to concentrate needs to kick up a gear only in the afternoon. I’d be okay with that, to be honest, given that it means a lesser amount of concentration time in general, except for the fact that it’s after lunch, which makes it a lot less fun and a lot tougher to manage.
My seniors from GNLU, who now study at the University of Oxford are in town for a moot court competition this week. That means Geneva will feel a lot like home for a while, which is a feeling I am more than happy to hold onto. It’s weird, but residential campuses burn people’s faces, routines, and wardrobes into your memory far more than anything else. Seeing these people in a different setting brings all those memories flooding back. I also get to meet new people – given that they’re obviously with other Oxford students. If that isn’t fun, I don’t know what is.
I’m just hoping to get some freebies out of the competition that they’re participating in. It’s one of the several things having seniors is good for.
