Whilst a student at Cambridge, Byron was irked that university rules banned keeping a dog. With characteristic perversity, he installed a tame bear instead. There being no mention of bears in their statutes, the college authorities had no legal basis to complain.
I am having the coolest course ever next spring on Jane Austen, all her six novels are MANDATORY reading plus it’s like an intensive course, 12 hours per week for three whole weeks
it feels like I’m starting to date Mr Darcy and it’s in May, how romantic is that! all my other classes are already over then it’s just him and me <3
and we get to do both discussions and panels and presentations and essays but ohhhh it’s JANE all the way and 4 study points!!
with my favourite teacher who loved my new boots a few winters back so much that she forgot what she was about to say in class :D and she has an intense crush on John Donne! she’s wayyy too cool for university professor
