Restoration Literature tutorial for Paper 5, one of the many exams I will sit in 2013. Tutorials involve reading through essays with my tutor, talking about what I wrote and expanding existing ideas. My tutor will give me a reading list for my next essay.
Run across to the Hall for dinner. Hall food is cheap and frequently edible. After dinner I grab the books on my reading list from the library.
7pm – 9pm
Work on some creative writing and more notes for my essay. I also read through my last essay and edit it based on my tutor’s notes; sometimes I will ask her to check it again and comment on the improvements.
9pm – 11pm
Trip to the pub with friends. We’re trying to visit every pub in Oxford. My personal mission is to find a pub (apart from the Jericho Tavern) that sells strawberry beer.
11.30pm – 12pm
Read for my next essay. I can read quickly when I need to — a skill required by all English Literature students — but it’s good to sit down and read certain pas- sages in detail.
Sleep. I promise myself I will go to a lecture tomorrow.
