Dissertation, More Travels and Preparing to Leave..

Posted on August 21st, 2012 by Caitlin Collom

I haven’t been very good about updating this blog.  I’m sorry for that!  Time has gone by so fast.  I have less than two weeks to finish up my dissertation and head back to the US.  It was has been an amazing year.  Since my three week Easter vacation I endured 2- 3 hour exams and [...]

Easter Vacation and the end of term!

Posted on April 26th, 2012 by Caitlin Collom

Hard to believe it’s been since February since I last posted.  This term has just flown by.  Classes end the 2nd week of May with exams at the end of May.  Currenlty I’m trying to figure out a topic for my dissertation I will be writing over the summer.  I’ve never had to write anything [...]

2nd Term

Posted on February 8th, 2012 by Caitlin Collom

It’s now my second week into the second term of my stay here.  I can’t believe how fast time is flying and with all the reading, studying, writing I have to do to prepare for my dissertation is overwhelming.  To be honest I’m not even sure what I’m going to write my summer dissertation on, [...]

It’s already December???

Posted on November 30th, 2011 by Caitlin Collom

It’s hard to believe that this semester is almost over already!  Where did the time go?  I’m currently working on finishing up an essay that is due friday and  a presentation that is due on Tuesday and then after that I’m free until exams in January.  This has felt like a whirlwind the last few [...]

Hello All, I recieved my first graded paper back and feel so relieved.  I now have a better understanding of the grading system here and also what I need to do to recieve high marks.  The first paper is always the worst especially if you’ve been out of school for a couple of years as [...]

Getting into the swing of things..

Posted on October 27th, 2011 by Caitlin Collom

It’s been five weeks since the beginning of the semester and I just now feel like I’m getting the hang of things.  There are about 15 people in my program and for the first time about 3/4 of us went out to a pub just to get to know each other.  It was a brilliant [...]

A little excursion..

Posted on October 18th, 2011 by Caitlin Collom

Hello Everyone! It’s getting late here, but I thought I would share a quick update of what I have been up to.  Currently I am a quarter of the way done with my first semester here in Aberdeen.  A pretty scary thought considering I am getting closer and closer to essays and exams!  I really need [...]

Time to study..

Posted on October 7th, 2011 by Caitlin Collom

Now that I’m going into my third week of study everything is starting to become a routine.  I still haven’t found the balance between wanting to go out and try new restaurants and shopping with studying.  The way the program is set up is alot different from what I’m used to in the US.  Alot [...]

First Week

Posted on September 24th, 2011 by Caitlin Collom

My first week here has been very positive!  I am really enjoying exploring the city of Aberdeen.  The people have all been very friendly and helpful.  It’s quite a different experience going to a pub/bar/club here than it is back home.  You are just one big family with everyone.  Or at least that was my [...]
