So, anyway...

the Oxford admission came through. I am still ridiculously excited and it has made all this decision making much easier, since it really was my first choice above and beyond anything else. Still don't know details of college and funding, but keeping my fingers crossed and hoping things work out.

In other news, off to Bali for a week today. Will be back with photos - and yes, more need to be posted.

I am going to have so much fun reliving my Oxford days vicariously through your posts! St. Antony's, inshallah, for the college. And I am tempted to send my old teachers at the MEC a note congratulating them on their fine admissions sensibility.

oh, and martin! fucking! stokes! I'm half-envious I'm not 22 and starting the whole thing over again....

Oh, and you're jealous.

Thanks, Falstaff - but I still have a very weird feeling that someone will come and tell me this whole ting was a scam or something...

e: I am hoping for St. Antony's too. Side note: Walter Armbrust has been assigned as my university supervisor, did you take any of his courses? And yes, omg, Martin Stokes! and so many others - I am still keeping fingers crossed for scholarships but really I just can't say no...sigh. Also, I am not 22 and now I feel old :(

??!: yeah, yeah - but can still feel jealous no????

Getting your first choice is a fantastic feeling, isn't it?

Congratulations!

(ahem) I took two of my three option courses from Walter, who is partly to blame for my subsequent transformation into an anthropologist. He's great (and the rest of my stories shall be reserved for some forum less public than this one...)

and you are not the least bit old--nor will most of your classmates be 22--the average in my cohort was mid-20's, I'd say.

I'm too excited for you. And have to tell you all about kebab vans, and bumps and eights and punts, and the late bar, and Bangladeshi groceries, and Jericho, and how to talk yourself out of library fines.

My god, I believe I've become old enough to suffer from nostalgia.

So happy for you! Congratulations!

Congratulations!!
And sigh.

Szerelem said...

aishwarya: absolutely :D And thanks!

e: your nostalgia is totally contagious! And I'll probably be bugging you on gtalk all summer - you are warned!

beth: thank you!

roxana: yes, yes, am back and catching up with your posts and have so many photos but also packing to do and gah! it's all overwhelming this packing and shifting business.

scherezade: thank you! And how are the travel plans coming along??

Ruinous as of now but I am going to the revolted British colonies, popularly known as the United States of Dementia. Some talk about a course in dramatics and screen writing.
Hardly an exciting thing. Gallivanting in Turkey would have been so much better.
