Nov 29 Elliot and I decided to be lab partners for the last lab of the year in science skills. It was pretty disastrous. We were supposed to use the automatic pipettes to put the sample into the gel for electrophoresis. I forgot to depress it before I stuck the tip in, so it got […]

Thanksgiving <3 5K1W

January 2nd, 2012 · No Comments · First Year Study Abroad Experience, Maria D'Abbene '15 - Stirling, Scotland, Study Abroad

Nov 27, 2011 Sunday Steph texted Megan and I about Thanksgiving dinner, but I’m not great at planning. Mhairi came through with a list for me to approve. Then she and Rachel went to Tesco while I turned on Listen Again and napped through the lecture on child development I was meant to be listening […]

UK film classification certificates. Nov 23 Kate, Megan, Evan, and I decided to go see Breaking Dawn (Part one). Well the beginning was awful, and then the movie continued to get worse. There was this intense wolf voice-over part, and I couldn’t help but laugh out loud. By the end when it turned into a […]

Last night was the paint party. Today we are in Paris! Nov18 We made it to the rail station and to the 9AM train (sadly they wouldn’t let us use our rail cards) to Edinburgh, yes Edinburgh, where we crossed the street to the air link bus. We got return tickets and passed an occupy […]

November 13 The train ride was about an hour to Edinburgh. Yes I’m going back to Edinburgh again. The hostel is called High Street Hostel and it’s right off the Royal Mile. It is conveniently located right across the street from where we are meeting for the tour! (http://www.highlandexplorertours.com/LochNess) A little about the hostel: Oh […]

Nov 10 I know I’m sick. I rolled out of my nice warm comforter and piles of blankets and into my jeans for lab at 9. I worked on my lab report up until the chem lecture at three then visited my yeast specimens from sci lab Tuesday and went to psychology directly after to […]

perfect night for a murder

December 31st, 2011 · No Comments · First Year Study Abroad Experience, Maria D'Abbene '15 - Stirling, Scotland, Study Abroad

November 7, 2011<3   It was the perfect night for a murder. The fog hung low and clouded everything. The streetlights were like floating orbs that heightened the mood. My window is all foggy and moisture has condensed, on the window so that I can draw pictures on the cold glass. It is the definition […]

Nov 5-7, 2011 I will remember the fifth of November, but not because it was Guy Faux day. He apparently tried to blow up Parliament. In Scotland/ the UK the fifth is a big deal. It is known casually as bonfire night, and my flatmates attended some fireworks. I however climbed a hill (times two) and attended my […]

looking back and looking ahead

December 31st, 2011 · No Comments · First Year Study Abroad Experience, Maria D'Abbene '15 - Stirling, Scotland, Study Abroad

November1, 2011 I actually got right up when my alarm went off at 8:45. I really need to go to bed before 3:30 when I have tests. Then again they should know better than to schedule a test on the day after Halloween. Abstaining from drinking was very helpful and was probably part of the […]

Happy Halloween love Stirling

December 30th, 2011 · No Comments · First Year Study Abroad Experience, Maria D'Abbene '15 - Stirling, Scotland, Study Abroad

It’s October thirty-first, and you know what that means. It’s Halloween! Even though it’s a universal holiday, not everyone in the universe celebrates the same. In the past, Halloween was reserved for trick-or-treating, and as I got older, handing out candy or attending parties, and haunted hay rides and mazes, but mostly just trick-or-treating. Last […]
