24 days until I go home and I can’t wait it.
I stopped writing this blog a while ago… The reason is that I don’t really feel interesting anymore. I feel like I’m living in a bubble. And unfortunately, I’m not talking about the cool Bubble-staff (a.k.a. cosy, familiar, friendly, St Andrews life) I am talking about being the main character in a European art film with obscure filter where the soundtrack is too loud that you actually can’t hear what the others are talking about.
In addition, I had a lot of coursework in the last couple of weeks (one presentation, two 2000-word-long essays, a Visual Analysis Test (about approx. 2000 images), an Italian test, and also, tomorrow I have another one), therefore I am extremely underslept, stressed, and by the way, I am really running out of money…
Don’t misinterpret anything it is not the time of complaining – it is time for funny stories!
1.) Are you gay?
Since my very good friend, Emily and I’ve realised that we suppose to meet our husbands here, at uni, we also had to realise that most of our Art History classmates are girls or probably gays. So I decided to ask anyone if they are gays or not, cos I won’t cause any misunderstanding. As you can imagine, boys had weird conversations with me. Unfortunately, they say that St Andrews is the paradise of LMBT, but my rate is 1 out of about 100…
But I won’t give up!
2.) Sleeping in the library
Because of I had to use a lot of heavy Art History book for my essays, I decided to move from the study room of the hall to the Main Library. Well, let me just say, if you spend there more than 14 hours with hardcore studying (and facebooking and having chats and eating cakes and show stupid videos to your Italian fellow and tumblring and…), you’ll be deadly tired as well. And the library has very cosy sofas. So, yes, I did take a nap a couple of times there. I don’t know why it happened to me that every time I woke up, someone was staring at me! Haven’t you seen sleeping people, dude??
3.) Raising Weekend
This is a habit in the University. The Academic families have a lot of fun (and alcohol) on Sunday, and then on Monday, every ‘children’ have to participate in a huge FOAM FIGHT on the Quad. (Oh, and your academic family dresses you up. Yep, there were lots of weird stuffs…) I smelled like shaving foam for days.
None of them was actually funny? It is probably because I slept ONE hour last night!
