I began Sunday with wonderful news: my original fic about dance has won the first prize in the contest Danza Digital! They'll publish it in the next number of the magazine and I've got a voucher to buy a lot of things in an awesome shop :D

If you're curious, HERE's the English version of the tale, and HERE the original one in Spanish.

On the other hand, life in Oxford keeps on being fantastic. There's so much to see and do! Yesterday I went to London and indulge myself some whims from the Sherlock Holmes museum XD The museum itself it's not exactly what I think 221B Baker St. should be but it's curious and amusing. Maybe I post some pics later. The thing is that I also went to the British Museum and I had been in the Ashmolean Museum the day before. This is problematic mainly for economical reasons: I can't help myself in museum's shops ;_;

And talking about museums, I'm applying for the Ashmolean 'cause I've been lucky enough to be here the moment they've decided to take curricula again. We'll see...

In the meantime, have a Sherlock fanvid with a suggestive song~

Two days and I'm already in love with the place. Every single corner is beautiful, people are very kind and I've been lucky enough to enjoy the wonderful weather of the last days <3
I knew it was going to be nice, being here, but really, I've never thought I was going to like it so much!

Mobile photos, cause I don't know what to do with them but show them all around~ )

The first day was kind of dull, a 9 hours trip can make things look grey and hard. But the next day began with a superb breakfast (I love breakfast in this house! &heart;) and everything looked shinier. I spent all morning taking my new cards for the bus and the libraries and, as everywhere was new and amazing, I forgot about the library and my thesis and spent the rest of the time being a tourist XD Actually, I've decided I'm going to be a tourist for some hours everyday. There're so many things to do and see! And the libraries! Omg, the libraries! If I'm not careful, I'll spend much more money than I should, but they make it difficult! Yesterday I went to the Bodleian library and visited the bookshop: I would have flailed and squee quite literally.

On the other hand, my "flatmates" and host are also really nice. The place is very cosy and has a little garden with a greenhouse where my host paints. I see her there in the mornings from my window. Also, I don't need to get up too early in the morning because she has a very flexible timetable and the libraries are open till 10 pm :D

So I don't know how I'll finish my stay here but for now, I'm delighted.

My friend thought it would be appropriate to send me some music XD
