Anticipating summer


in Daily updates, Oxford

Over the course of a day so gloriously warm and bright it made me astonished to think I was decked out in Gore-Tex yesterday, I dropped off my first summer job application at Blackwells. I will follow it up with applications at lesser bookshops, tour guiding agencies, and possibly pubs. With a bit over two weeks left in the term, now is definitely the time. I want something interesting that will pay the cost of living and include enough flexibility for me to do thesis research and undertake between two and four trips of a week or so in length.

Another thing I am seeking is voluntary organizations with which to be involved over the summer. I am looking for things that will stand in for classes as opportunities to get to know people and spend time with them on a regular basis. Possibilities include walking or cycling groups, photographic societies, or anything else that corresponds with either an existing interest of mine or one I might develop. Suggestions would be most welcome.

This has nothing to do with the above, but there are some some funny legal precedents being discussed on MeFi.

Donoghue v. Stevenson (1932) is shamefully excluded, though I did leave a comment about it. Frequently called ‘the snail case, this decision of the House of Lords founded the modern tort of negligence, both in Scots law and across the world in common law jurisdictions.
