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.

  1. If I do end up making the extended trip, I would be sorely tempted to get a MacBook Air to write on during the course of it.

    My G4 iBook is creaking with age, both in terms of hardware and software, and it would be quite a block of plastic to carry around.

    That being said, it might be reckless to buy a computer on top of everything else. I could just write in paper notebooks and transcribe anything of importance once I get back.

  2. I checked and all of Fido’s data plans for the US are about $1 per megabyte. That seems excessively expensive. I will just bring my iPhone set to ‘airplane mode‘ and use WiFi where available.

    That’s if I do end up going on this trip, which is becoming more certain by the day.

  3. I look forward to following your trip and adventures on our blog.

    Which of the options are you most leaning towards?

  4. I am still not even totally sure if the non-Washington parts of the trip are a good idea. There are a fair number of things I need to deal with, in terms of moving and other tasks. It would also be a more prudent use of time to work on a doctoral application, even if it is unrealistic to try to submit applications this fall.
