It’s a real pleasure to bring you the next instalment of my “On Location” series from the Queen’s Lawn.
Winter this year has been very eventful. The above average levels of snowfall lead to a sharp increase in snow-fight induced frostbite and befriending of snowmen, but those are treats that are exclusively for ones free-time. The sun is a treat that can be used whether you’re skipping a lecture on-campus or off.
One great thing about it getting warmer is that it’s one of the rare times all the local departments mix on a causal level. Everyone comes out to graze on the Queen’s lawn, whether it’s to eat lunch, go over notes or get a mild to minimal suntan. I personally like to use this opportunity to wander round the clusters of people till I recognise someone and can engage in the “spontaneous-hug” followed by a lovely conversation about who just had the worst lecturer or who has the most work to do tonight.
Great conversation and a good helping of oxygen. Certainly beats 3 hours in labs at the mercy of my computer!!
Thanks for reading,
