Well guys, i've arrived in Scotland! I arrived on saturday afternoon after a 13 hour journey, and to my surprise greeted with some sunshine and semi warm weather. I've only just got the internet set up, next up figure out how this whole paying for gas and electricity through a card thing works. While my jet lag is slowly subsiding, I can tell this city will be growing on me (I mean i've already seen about 3 or 4 posters advertising some of my favorite bands coming over here). I haven't had too much of a hard time understanding the glaswegian accent, aside from a person or two, and the people have been as nice as i've heard they were!

 One thing that I can tell is going to be very different for me is the fact that I am a post graduate student, and a very young one at that. My flat has 4 other girls, my friend and I are the youngest ones here (the others are about 26 or 27). They are nice, but quiet, so I haven't really been able to enjoy freshers week as much as I did when I studied in England 2 years ago. Hopefully once classes start up and I join a few clubs and societies things will run a bit more smoothly. Oh and I definitely need to remember that my umbrella will become a new limb for me.

 For now i'll leave you with the only photos i've had the time to take via my phone:
