Despite her busy schedule of acting, modeling, and getting followed around by relentless paparazzi, Emma Watson is trying once again to return to her studies and behave like a normal college student, this time in the hallowed halls of Oxford University. Seeing as Hogwarts was based in large part on old English boarding schools, it’s pretty cute to think of Emma Watson studying in grand old libraries in a very Hermione-like way.
Watson posted this photo of herself on her first day of school on her website today, alongside this message:
To Everyone who is starting a New School Year, (sorry those who have been at school for a while Oxford starts late)
Just to say have a great term and good luck with all your work.
You might not hear from me for a while because I will be really busy studying but I wanted to just say hi and bye : )
Hope you all like ‘My Week with Marilyn’ and i’ll keep you posted on ‘Perks’.
Love Emma xx
Frickin’ adorable, right? Let’s hope the paps don’t distract her too badly. In my experience, Oxford is a relatively boring (but beautiful!) college town, so maybe she’ll be able to focus better there.
