Tomorrow I head out back to Oklahoma, making this my last full day in Oxford. As always, with any good thing, it went by too fast and I’m sad to see it go, but I will always treasure my time here. It was a sort of academic dream, the perfect balance between school and leisure, doing my summer classes in the University of Oxford all while having the time and freedom to explore a new country. When I first arrived three weeks ago, I didn’t expect to grow so attached to the place, since I wouldn’t be here very long, but earlier I found myself taking pictures of even the most generic places here in Brasenose College, from the laundry room to the staircase leading to my dorm. I’m sure that when I’m showing my mom the pictures I took she’ll wonder what’s so special about where I washed my clothes. Later today we have a fancy farewell dinner scheduled to send us off, and I’m enthusiastically looking forward to it, but right now, I need to figure out a way to fit all my souvenirs into my suitcase!
