7the week was tough. Body and soul. But I don’t want this to be somewhere to whine. So instead of talking about the embarrassing amount of thinking, walking and soul-searching I did, let me show you the rowing and the rugby.
The boat races which happen at the end of Hilary (spring term) are known, for some reason or another, as “Torpids”. I went to watch the event, and support our college teams, on a sunny and chilly Thursday afternoon, and got a chance to try out my epic new lens.
On Saturday, the Exeter College Rugby Team played the so-called “Old Boys Match” against, predictably, a team composed of Exeter alumni. It was a friendly match, and I surprised myself by not only staying for, but enjoying the whole thing. Even though I had pretty much no idea what was going on.
