Where’s the Pause Button?

June 8th, 2010 cmcurr11

It is already 7th week of Trinity term. Where on earth did my year abroad go? I’m currently writing my last two essays, and I cannot believe that I’m nearly finished with my academic responsibilities at Oxford. For my last paper for Lucinda, I’m exploring how Julian of Norwich comes to accept her role as a mystic despite her previous aversion to mysticism, as influenced by English Christianity’s general distrust of mysticism in general. For Hugh’s last paper, my question is “How far did the Magna Carta fulfill the intentions of its makers?” As you can imagine, after I finish Lucinda’s paper (hopefully in the next two hours), I’ll be in the History Faculty Library researching and writing Hugh’s. Don’t worry; I plan on writing an incredibly long entry about my academic experience at Oxford, but that will have to wait until after Thursday at 5:00 p.m., when I’m officially finished with my papers. This is all going by way too quickly!
