Hello Blog-reading world! Welcome back to round three. Since round two there's been some thrills, some spills, some ills, chills and I have fewer dollar bills. But seriously, (not that that wasn't serious, but now, I'm going to be more serious) things have been going fantastic on my end, and hopefully on yours too. Since there wouldn't be space or time enough to enumerate all the things which have happened recently, I'll do a handy highlights list.
Highlight #1: I got accepted into a CCCU program which will see me as an enrolled visiting student of Oxford University for next year!
Highlight #2: The excessive amount of non-alcoholic champagne I drank to celebrate getting into Oxford.
Highlight #3: The excessive amount of Chinese food I ate that night when celebrate with friends.
Highlight #4: Fort Week!!! FYI: Fort Week for those unfamiliar with it, it is a week long inter-dorm challenge. Somewhat similar to the Olympics but just very different in almost every way. Fort Week is comprised of nightly competitions. My favourite competition was dorm vs. dorm trivia, my least favourite was any event in which my body was employed rather than my mind.
Un-Highlight #5: Getting my contact lens taken out of my eye when playing Boston Riot. Boston Riot, for those unaware, is a game in which two male dorms hold onto each other despite the best efforts of two female dorms to tear them apart in a specific time frame. Luckily, my only injury was a lost contact lens, which escaped my eye when a ferocious girl hit me in it.
Highlight #6: Getting a Mohawk! Nothing could have been more dissimilar to my usual countenance or disposition than this. It was un-scholarly, un-me and such a blast. My own mother even disowned me for it, but I'm sure she'll come around eventually. I shaved it off after Fort-Week, as did the rest of my dorm who got Mohawks, but while it lasted it was fun. Oh... nearly forgot, for the banquet at the end of Fort Week I also sported a handle-bar moustache!
Well, that's it for now, but thanks very much for having a read.
P.S. Below are some pictures to supplement the highlights.
