Semester 2 Begins

36 °F

Hello all!

I know it's been a while since I posted but there has been a lot going on. I had a fantastic first semester. I made excellent grades and I was fortunate enough to go to Germany with my friend Friedrich. He lives in Hamburg and we spent three or four days touring the various Christmas markets. It was absolutely wonderful. I had a long 4 and a half week break at home. I got to see all of my friends, spend time with my family, and relax a bit. It was really nice. However, it is nice to be back in St. Andrews. I'm back on the busy schedule, which I do enjoy. This week is the first week it's actually gotten pretty cold. I have to wear a bunch of layers. I had my first history lecture this semester and it was very interesting to learn about the American Revolution from a British teacher. For many of my peers, their first Super Bowl Experience was last night. They, like the Americans coming here to get a cultural experience, are getting their own slice of culture and taste. This first week has been good to get back into the swing of things.

I'm very excited also, because the new Radio Studio above the Union goes live on Wednesday, so starting next Monday at 10 am, "At a Glance" will be back at it.

Semester 2 here we go!

Also, I was able to get into the Royal and Ancient Clubhouse on St. Andrews Day (November 30th, 2014). There was a town in Germany that was called Luneburg and it was traditionally a salt town. Look carefully at some of the photos - the buildings are sinking!
