After eating lunch and tea in the dorm, I camped out at Starbucks on High Street for a few hours and had a Frappucino and a cookie. I worked on my Shakespeare paper which discusses stoicism in Hamlet and Juliet Caesar, not so much on the short paper on Evelyn Waugh, the author of Brideshead Revisited. I am still working on the essays--both due tomorrow--but I am excited to work on my Shakespeare paper here in England.
The magic of Oxford Academia has inspired me to overachieve.
A few friends and I went to the Rose and Crown on North Parade. I finally had "bangers and mash"--a simple dish of sausage, mashed potatoes, and gravy. It is no gourmet dish, but it is a good choice for a typical rainy English evening.
