Today, it begins. I have 4 and a half hours of exams – yep, Finals have begun. This is what I’ll be wearing for the next 18 days…
So, at Oxford, they don’t let you sit your exams in normal clothes, oh no. You have to wear what is called ‘sub fusc’, which is essentially white shirt, black skirt/trousers, and your ‘gown’, which is a sort of silly swooshy thing not at all like a Harry Potter robe (unless you jump through some academic hoops to get a cool one).
Sub fusc is usually hot and uncomfortable, and no one looks their best in it… Especially me!
I did however buy some heels so that the whole things wasn’t entirely devoid of style!
(Did you know I wore glasses? ‘Cause I do!)
That’s me all dressed for today, then, and a heads up that while posts will continue daily, I might not be around much answering comments, reading other blogs, or on Twitter… Got a lot of memorising to do – wish me luck!
Keep in touch by following me!
