I feel like I've been posting less and less lately. I suppose that's because things are getting to the point where they aren't that new and exciting anymore. On one hand that's a good thing, as it means I've settled in and adjusted to life over here, on the other hand I don't feel as inspired to write about things anymore.
This week has been an interesting one. I'll start off from last weekend.
The girl in the white is my academic mum, and weirdly enough, she's a few months younger than me.
I figure I should tell you all something about where I'm staying, i.e. my dorm or hall as its called here.
OK, I know that title sounds completely crazy. But, let me explain.
Oh, and if you're wondering, the guy in the middle of the picture (grey jacket) is my dad.
This past weekend, A horde of celebrities were in St Andrews for a golf tournament. The Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, pairs amateur celebrity golfers with pros as they compete for the cup. The celebrities included Hugh Grant and Samuel L Jackson who were probably the most talked about/sought after of the lot. There were quite a few more, a number of cricketers included.
The first week of classes has come and gone. It took me a while a find a couple of my lecture rooms, but I found them in time and wasn't late to any of my classes. There are a lot of differences in the way things are taught over here. Not that I didn't expect things to be different, I did, it's just that now, I'm a bit worried that I might not be able to cope. We have major essays to write and actual researching to do. A small voice inside me keeps saying that I should have stayed in Davis where everything is familiar and therefore easier.
