so many things.

Okay okay okay…I’ve been back in Glasgow for almost three weeks now and am starting to get a bit of heat for my lack of updates – but I have been busy!

I was in the states for two super-packed weeks filled with lots of visits, wonderful people and delicious food. I got back to Glasgow on New Years Eve which was a bit of a blur…I hadn’t slept much on my flights back, and only took an hour nap before going out with friends for a delicious thai dinner and to a pub with a live band for midnight…came back to the flat around 12:30am, and slept until 3pm the next day! Very disorienting.

On the 2nd, we went to Edinburgh to catch the last bits of the Christmas market, and I spent the next few days after that in complete hibernation, working on my school papers which were due the 5th. On the 6th, my brother John came to visit (as my first official visitor!) so I played tour guide for a few days, but also developed a horrific cough which is finally beginning to fade.

On Friday, we had our first major snowfall in Glasgow (about two inches), which has made roads and sidewalks very slick and slushy, as people don’t seem to shovel much..

This week = getting back into school work and a few days in Dublin next weekend!

And now, some (a lot of) photos.
