I had one good idea today and called the college about when I have to show up. They didn't know, but guessed that it was either on the 6th or the 7th. So that would change the beginning of term by a week. The college web site lists them for 2002, but the university site says it has been fixed. The term now starts Sunday, 10 October and ends Saturday, 4 December. 8 weeks. Of pure horror?
I'm just not feeling like going to Oxford these days. I guess that makes me an ungrateful bitch :/
