I feel pretty bad that I haven’t posted in two weeks, but I have a legit excuse for my extended absence from the blogosphere. It’s been the busiest two weeks yet, with my family coming last week, classes finishing this week, and coursework due today and next Monday. And to keep the countdown going, we’re at 3 weeks and 2 days left in the land of the Scots.
I headed south of Scotland for a weekend in London. I met up with two high school friends – Andrew, who’s studying in London, and Sara, who’s close to Amsterdam – and it was great to finally see some people from home other than the people I came to St. Andrews with. It’s kind of funny because I’m pretty sure when we were all in high school, none of us would have thought in three years, we would be meeting up to tour London. We had a great time, and there is a good possibility I’ll go back next semester.
I finally made it onto the Old Course on Friday, after two and a half months of walking by it almost every day. It was the best experience I’ve had so far, and I don’t think anything else will top it. It was sunny out, which is somewhat of a rarity over here lately, and although it was a little wet, the course was in great condition. It was the best round of golf I’ve played since I’ve been here, and I know I played better just because I was on the Old Course.
