Quiet Period Begins
The Spring (or 'Easter') term is designated quiet period in Cambridge. So, tonight was the last formall hall and Pav dance of the year for Churchill. Cambridge tradtionally takes the time before exams extremely seriously, to a silly degree I think, because it's pretty unlikely the undergrads will be using next Friday night with no Pav to be studying for their exams which are still weeks away. Anyway, as a grad student I'm just busy 100% of the time so it doesn't really matter, there's very little sense of the academic year for me. But I'll miss the Friday night Pavs, which have been fun.
