More Adventures

The rest of my Freshers' Week was a blast! I dragged Megan and Sam up to the top of Arthur's Seat (a big hill that I have a gorgeous view of from my dorm window). As you can see in the pictures, it is not that big (about 250 meters) but it is steep! Going up was fine. A little exhausting but nothing we couldn't handle. The views from the top are outstanding. Coming down, however, was a different story....

I had the brilliant idea to try another trail down to we could see Edinburgh from a different view. The trail started out very modest and not very steep. Then, out of nowhere, it kinda dropped off.... It was still climbable, and we could see the stairs we climbed up below. So we decide to slide down to the stairs...

Well, I made it down no problem (luck mostly). Megan slipped and fell down on her butt, much to my amusement. And Sam, well, she didn't fall on her butt, she just sat down from the beginning and slid down. It took us over an hour to get down! But we had some good laughs!

Then we went back to the Museum again because it's just so fabulous. I have some pics from that as well!

For the weekend, Megan and I took a train up to Aberdeen to move her in. Her flat is decent and her flatmates seem very nice.

Aberdeen is a charming town, much more quiet than Edinburgh which will better suit Megan. As for me, I got rejected from a pub there, so that all I'm going to say about Aberdeen.

Today, I started class. I had my first lecture for my Medieval Scottish History class and loved it! I'm definitely a student at heart and look forward to my studies. I just hopes that my motivation lasts long! ;) One of my lecturers for my history class is named James Fraser which is just great! (Donna will understand my inner squeal!) I start my international business courses tomorrow, so I'll let you guys know how those are soon.

But overall, everything has been so much better than I could ever imagine it being, even with cold and deary weather. I could live here forever and want you all to visit me!!!!!
