Today is the last Death Monday of second year. Damn.
Hey, Uni? Maybe slow down, please?
This morning I had an Archaeology lecture over Forensics and DNA which was really interesting. It ran a little over and cut into my already limited lunch time… but eh, the lecture was cool so I didn’t mind.
For lunch, I grabbed a bowl of soup and went to eat in the Debating Hall in Teviot, it’s in the quieter part of the student union and I really like it because it looks like an old medieval Great Hall. You know the type with the high wooden ceilings, mezzanine, and dark wood everything? Yeah? Yeah.
After lunch, I went to my last Medieval tutorial for the year. It was over the Later Crusades after the fall of the Crusader states (circa 1291). After, I had a Roman Empire lecture over the 3rd century AD and then I went to my last Archaeology lab for the semester. The lab was over using data sets to create charts and stuff on the computer.
The weather has been stellar again and so yesterday I spent most of the day outside. I went for a run in the meadows, meet up with some friends, and did some yoga. My friends have commented that I have transcended my title of ‘Trash Child’ (I constantly trip over things, fall into bins or the gutter, and live in the Meadows in my hammock which one more than one occasion has been set up next to a bin. I also lay on the floor for prolonged periods of time and whine.). According to Ellie, I have become ‘Earth Child’ after my outdoor yoga sesh in the mud. Truthfully, I still feel more like a ‘Trash Child’ but eh, I’ll take ’em where I can get ’em.
On wider notes, the Avengers have started filming again here in Edinburgh! They’ve blocked off of much of the Royal Mile and yesterday night they blew up a truck in front of St. Giles! I’ve walked by the set a few times and they have repainted a jewelry shop into a kebab shop and have massive rain buckets pouring water all over the street. They only film late at night, so, no I haven’t seen any of the actors (and probably won’t). Although I could swear I saw one of the directors driving around Edinburgh last weekend!
This week is going to be spent finishing up my last two essays. I’m nearly done with my Roman Empire essay and still have to write my archaeology report. This weekend officially starts my Easter break and I will be heading south to excavate a Medieval graveyard and get a much needed two week break! More on that next week!!
My twentieth birthday is in 25 days so that’s terrifying. I always thought that by the time I was twenty I would be a semi-functioning adult… but alas.
