As for my room...well, I actually have two rooms. Which is probably a blessing in disguise, but let me tell you that I was NOT happy to only find out about the split-room arrangement once I got here. I have a teeny tiny bedroom on one end of the 2nd floor, and a considerably larger study on the other side. (I think I'm meant to get my priorities straight this way?) I keep going back and forth, but Lordie, the floor creaks like you wouldn`t believe. I feel

I quite like the area where we are living too. St-Hilda is known as being relatively "far" from the center of the city, being on the other side of Madgalen Bridge. (By "far", I mean that it takes me less than 20 minutes to walk to the Rad Cam.) It's also relatively "new" for an Oxford college, being "only" 118 years young and doesn`t have extremely large grounds. The consequence of all this is that almost all the graduate students live in houses like mine, dotted around Cowley and Iffley Roads and owned by the College. This part of the city is less historical and more residential, so it actually feels like we`re living in the actual city of Oxford, as opposed to to its museum-like center. There`s also roughly 5 cafés, 10 pubs and 50 eateries within 5 minutes of where I live, so hey, I'm pretty happy.
