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 months and non stop.  It’s been a wonderful time.  This last week in itself was quite an experience.  My flatmate and I decided to take a trip to Glasgow on Sunday to see a concert at the SECC.  We arrived early and toured the city for a bit, stopping off at the Art Gallery and the Glasgow Cathedral.  We also went to the Christmas in Glasgow event.  I absolutely love the Christmas season here it’s beautiful!

Then on Tuesday my other flatmate and I took a little trip to Edinburgh to attend the welcome event for International Scholarship Students being held at the National Museum of Scotland.  It was amazing.  I didn’t get to see much more of Edinburgh other than the Christmas Market, but I will definently be making a trip back down in the next couple of months.  While at the event I was able to meet the Cabinet Secretary for Education Mike Russell.  It was a very welcoming event and truly made me feel that Scotland is committed to it’s international students from all over the world.

Speaking of international… my other American flatmate and I decided to celebrate Thanksgiving dorm style.  Thursday of course we actually went out to dinner and then to watch Dreamboats and Petticoats.  Friday though was the big feast day which included a delicious potato casserole, stuffing, corn, rolls, and since we didn’t have oven space to have a turkey we improvised and made breaded chicken.  It was wonderful.  While preparing dinner we played christmas music and had chocolate mousse for desert.  It could not have been better!  Even if you are away from home on Thanksgiving you can still enjoy every minute when you have good company and good food.

I suppose I ought to get back to my essay..I just wanted to send a quick update!

If I don’t write before Christmas then EVERYONE HAVE A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!
