End of the Oxford Era
Part of: Graduate School in Oxford
I'm pleased to be able to report that I passed my exams and will actually receive an MPhil degree!! Hooray!!! (If you're just joining us, I was studying Early Christian and Greco-Roman religious history, I took exams on June 14-15, defended my dissertation on June 29, and June 27-30 we moved from Oxford out to the nearby village of Great Milton.)
We drove into Oxford this morning to check my exam results and do some other errands, and we had a great time. It was even sunny for the first time in maybe two weeks, which was fabulous. I brought the little camera along to snap some more pics of our beloved ex-hometown.
This is the very pretty side of the Examination Schools, where I exited after my first exam and had many lectures over the last couple years. I had such fun learning about Constantine and Roman religion there! Good times.
Here's a few more pictures taken this morning during our quick walk around town:
It was interesting how different it felt to be back in Oxford now that we don't live there anymore. It's only been about a week since we were there of course, and yet the fact that we can't just walk or bus into town whenever we feel like it makes us appreciate the beautiful sights even more than usual.
