Snow day

Snow and dog in the University Parks

You know those days when you wake up to find the world unexpectedly blanketed with snow? As a Vancouverite, I really don’t, so this morning is especially surprising. I am glad I peeked out early enough to realize that cycling today is a non-starter. Also, early enough to be able to grab a few ‘pristine snow’ pictures of Oxford.

[Update: 1:30pm] College taken over by young ballistics experts from nearby secondary school. Staff, student body in headlong retreat, scattering in all directions. All thoughts of pristine snow banished by ceaseless barrage.

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.
