A few quick jottings on today

Oxford Town Hall

I had my first IR of the Developing World seminar today (notes), which was quite interesting. Later, I tried unsuccessfully to get the St. Antony’s washing machines to work for me. Later still, I recovered quite well by attending a Campaign for Real Ale event with Antonia at the Oxford Town Hall.

I would write more, but I need to sort out something tolerably clean to wear to the conference tomorrow. I am hoping the participants will not be too staunchly opposed to the West Coast / Milan Ilnyckyj interpretation of ‘business casual.’ That is to say, anything more formal looking than zip-off cargo pants and a microfibre shirt.

PS. Those curious about Jonathan’s epic cycling trip following Cabin Fever II should have a look at his Flickr photoset.

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.
