Ireland

Two weeks before departing Edinburgh (which I have now done– more on that later), six of our friends went on a trip to Ireland. We flew Ryan Air into Dublin, where we spent two days before taking a bus to Belfast, and then back down to Dublin two days later. It was a really successful…

The Follies of Exams

It’s exam time! That’s right, boys and girls, the day has come when you all get to sit in a large room full of matching desks, chuck out your name and identity for an assigned number/barcode, and regurgitate facts. Naturally, one’s ability to repeat information like a talking parrot is ample proof that he/she has…

Hi all!
Today’s entry is in the form of a vlog letter, which I made for my friend Shannon. It is a prime example of some of the bizarre situations I somehow find myself in.

You may wonder about the logo at the end of the video– this is the reason I made this video in the first place. Shannon and I run a small theatre company in Vermont, and are currently preparing to go on tour this summer with an original play that we wrote and perform as a two woman production. We wanted to promote the show in a hands on, creative way, so we decided to make some videos back and forth. This way, we can not only keep in touch and be doing film work (which we both love), but also promote our show and let people see the production develop as we approach the tour. Not that this particular video is even slightly related to our tour…

It’s hard to book and write an entire production while also a full time student. This year has been especially challenging– my time in Edinburgh is already so limited that I really want to be focusing on HERE as much as possible. I know, though, that having something exciting to go home to will be really important. The tour will be wonderful– we did one last year, too, and it was one of the best experiences of my life.

If you are interested in our group, you can check out our facebook page, where we will post our tour schedule of the East Coast when I return to America.

The Joys of Lazy Days

The past week and a half, I have traded in productivity for a wee bit of leisurely enjoyment. With classes done and no exams for another few weeks, it has been a time of galavanting rather than work. My flatmates all emptied out to go adventuring around Europe, so I’ve had the flat to myself…

Spring Updates

It’s been a while since I’ve last written, but as the semester is now nearing its end, I figured I would give you an update of how these last few months have been. Classes: I took four classes this semester: English Lit 2, Intro to European Theatre, The Supernatural World, and the Highland Bagpipe (yeah,…

Holiday Thoughts

The semester is drawing to a close, and people are beginning to disappear. Some are leaving just for break, but others have completed their time in Edinburgh and are heading back to wherever it is that they hail from. It is sad and strange to see friends who I have spent the last three and…

Housing FAQs

Just a warning before you dive headfirst into this post only to find it lacking in the entertainment department: this will be a Useful Post more than a Fun Post. If you are looking into studying here though, then hopefully it will come in handy. When first filling out my plethora of application forms to…

The ProcrastiNation of Scotland

It’s essay time, folks. So naturally I’m tapping away at my keyboard to write… this blog. Let’s talk about procrastination, shall we? Because lets be honest, as the semester is drawing to a close, it’s all any of us that fall under the “student” category have been doing lately. Granted, some methods are more productive…

Skye Blue Skye

Before we launch into the main topic of today’s entry, I would like to bring to your attention the following image, which lists the google searches that brought readers to this blog on one given day: Apparently you are currently reading the latest in scientific research regarding baffled felines. Makes sense. Anyway, on the the…

Vlogh Edition!

I know, I know– it’s not exactly top notch film quality. If you want to buy me final cut pro and a better laptop, be my guest. xx
