1.15pm - Working in the college library: I like to do reading for classes and essays in short bursts, so if I have a spare hour or so I usually head to the college library to look at a few chapters. 3.30pm - Time for a quick cup of a tea and a post-class catch up. 7.00pm - On a busy week we might head back to the library for a little bit after dinner, work together in someone’s room or even out on the grass to read for an essay if the weather is nice.
4.00pm - Dog walk: one of my favourite things to do is borrow a member of staff’s dog and take a few laps of the Christ Church meadows, I always figure out my best essay plans on a walk! On quieter weeks I might be rehearsing for a play, going to a poetry reading or just watching a film with friends!
