Life has been kind of crazy lately as I’ve been running around trying to sort out various things for college and next year. Earlier this week, my mum and I were on the 8am train to St Andrews, where we were looking at the university. The week before I was in Glasgow and from what I have seen, I prefer the Scottish universities from the English, simply because it allows for more flexibility. This is ideal for me as I’ve always said I want to do a joint degree – which seems to be pretty rare here – and have been struggling to narrow down the subjects I will be taking.
I have to say though I was really impressed with St Andrews itself – it is so beautiful! I’d love to go back there again, even if I don’t go to the university. When we stayed, we were in a lovely bed and breakfast owned by a really helpful couple and who made really lush breakfast! If anyone is ever looking for somewhere to stay in the area, I would recommend Cleveden House.
While I’m on the subject, I really do have to say a massive thanks to my mum for being dragged to Scotland on her birthday! With any luck, she didn’t find it too boring. Then again, I don’t think boring is really the word to describe getting stuck on the beach in a hail storm. Cold maybe.
Last night, I went to my first ever rugby. Admittedly, I didn’t understand much more than the very basics of the game but I thought it was amazing. Compared to the couple of football games I have been dragged to previously, it was so exciting! Even though the team we were supporting lost (and might get relegated), I would love to go and watch another match some time soon.
This weekend proves to be equally busy. I’ve already been up for a couple of hours trying to redraft my English literature coursework. Again. Not the most exciting of things. I think I might be going out with some friends tomorrow because, scarily, it is my birthday next week. Normally, I would be counting down the days in a stupor of excitement but this year it is just scary! As I mentioned earlier, I’ve been researching universities, my exams are next month and as of Tuesday, I can learn to drive! How scary is that?!
