After a term at Oxford, travelling down to start university seems like a lifetime ago. To think that in October, I didn’t know all the people I have met since is unbelievable, and testament to the immersive and inclusive nature of life at Brasenose and Oxford in general.

At the age of 21 the festive season seems to have lost some of the magic it once held for me, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t get excited when I start to hear the Christmas classics on the radio. Today’s unusual blanketing of snow also helped to somewhat reignite the spark.
