Home and Away.
My last post was about the journey back. It’s been a little over eight weeks since then. Of course, not actually being at uni does mean less uni updates, but a couple of things.
• Officially passed first year! I’m not ecstatic, but I did better than I expected and passed the French Oral and aced the written and politics was amazing and history was disappointing, but overall, I seem to have made sense of the system. Which is reassuring.
• Liberal Arts conference in October! Inviting students from other unis to that and working on a roundtable discussion of some sort.
• liberalartsatkcl.tumblr.com is up and running, so if by some stroke of luck we’ve got any of our incoming freshers on tumblr, that should be fun.
• Been doing piecemeal internships which are very much reinforcing the idea of wanting to come back, post-degree, because there’s just so much to do.
But this summer has felt much more like being away, than being home. Maybe it’s been the random travelling or not having enough nothing-to-do time at home or not doing the reading I’d intended to, but consciously and subconsciously, I am very much looking forward to being back. Having dreamt of my new room at Connaught is probably a little much, but uni love exists in extremes.
Can’t wait to be back home.
