Looking ahead to July and August

With Clara gone, Massey suddenly seems empty and lonely. The way she is integral to this place for me is illustrated by how alien the quad has become in the absence of the distinct light pattern from her desk lamp.

For the rest of the summer, my core aims need to be dealing with the summer residence program on weekends and holidays and dedicating the maximum time possible during the week to preparation for the public policy comp. Some regular routine of Massey breakfast, time at the gym, regular sleep, and dedicated periods of reading in libraries is necessary if I am to move from my present state of woeful non-preparation into a position of comfortable readiness by the time of the exam in August.

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.
