Sixth week is drawing to a close. It has mostly been a week of hard work, apart from the trip to Brighton. Tutorials are definitely winding down, I have three left total, but only two of those are research-based, and a number of my friends here have finished one of their two tutorials completely. I went to the Imps again on Monday, always hilarious. I also had a number of get-togethers with my cast members practicing our lines, since we open Wednesday. I found out that my entry in the New Writing Festival did not advance to the finals, primarily because it is long and too difficult to stage (they wanted shorter, simpler pieces). I told my mythology tutor it wasn't the end of the world. We then had our session, which was on the end of the world. My drama experience, apart from my tutorials (which I've learned a lot of drama in), has thus been limited to the one play I'm in. I'm still thrilled to be here, and have learned so much. Not just in the tutorials, but also in travels and day to day activities, lessons about myself and the world. This has been the experience of a lifetime!
On Thursday I attended my second debate at the Union. It was a debate on the 2-state solution in Israel/Palestine. All of the guest speakers except one dropped out about an hour before the debate, a huge statement in itself- so it ended up being a student debate, still interesting and still very unresolved.
Side note: mulled ginger wine rocks!
