It may be stress from work or the distraction of planning other trips (such as the one in two months where I’m in charge of 21 OTHER PEOPLE in New York City) or other issues are going on, but I haven’t felt as excited about Oxford as I thought I would be.
Don’t get me wrong – I am thrilled to be going. It just doesn’t feel very Christmas morning-ish, if you know what I mean.
Then again, I did get a particular thrill when I received a welcome letter today that included this:
Your mailing address, whilst you are in Oxford, will be:
c/o The Oxford Teacher Seminar
I have a (albeit for only a brief time) mailing address at Oxford!
