Besides a mountain of schoolwork and a lot (and I really mean A LOT) of rowing, things have actually been pretty quiet here, all things considered... with one major exception, that my good friend and former roommate Leslie came to visit a few weeks ago! I hadn't seen Leslie in a year and it was great to catch up again; it's always so nice to meet people that you can just fall right back into talking to them like you've been seeing them every day even when it's actually been months and months.
I lived with Leslie during my short stint in Middleburg in 2012 and we first met through the USEA, so needless to say that horse gossip was the top priority of the trip. Now that I have a little more distance from it, I can finally realize how absolutely ridiculous horse chat is... but that doesn't mean that I don't still love every second of it!!

(Enjoying some British high tea)
(Eating in Pembroke hall! If only the food matched up to the view...)
(Checking out the All Souls chapel - so. freakin'. boss.)
I was sad Leslie had to leave after just a few day - Leslie I you're reading this: please come visit again soon!!
