One of the more meteorologically depressing days, in the most depressing month, just shy of the most depressing part of term, was rendered even more crap by LawSoc’s technological faux pas.
One Oxford’s largest student societies, handing out more free food than you can shake a wig at, the Law Society’s ball on 1st December was billed as their “most exciting event to date,” held at the Gherkin, replete with unlimited drinks following a three-course dinner. VERSA laments the fact newspapers don’t treat aspiring journalists in the same manner.
The excitement racing across Oxford on this dismal day can only be imagined, as thousands opened the following email:
Only four minutes later, elation returned to ennui: o tempora, o mores. No, Cinderella, you shan’t go to the ball. Not that Cinderella minded hugely – she hadn’t even balloted. But it was a bit of a slap in the face nonetheless.
