There is now no doubt remaining that the Rooms of Requirement have been properly broken in. Thursday night, I hosted a course social. We had 20-30 people over during the course of 7pm-midnight. A grand time of bruschetta, caprese, cheese, crisps, chips, and sweet potato fries was had by all.
Because the LLM in International Law programme doesn't have any core courses, there are people enrolled in my programme who I literally will never see in lecture. It was nice to get to know them a bit and what they're interested in!
Today, I went to the City of Edinburgh Methodist Church...it was nice to get back to the Methodist connection! Still debating also hanging out with the Unitarians a good deal, but awfully tempting to go sing with the adorable choir. The church is super close to the College of Law...both a bad and good thing.
At that church happens to be a mate who attended the 2008 General Conference to which I was a delegate. It was really lovely to catch back up with David!
I also randomly met a student who was at UEA doing her master's last year, is now in Edinburgh for her PhD, and is an American Methodist pastor's daughter. Cue the "It's a Small World" music!
