    ... and another pillow. It made the room slightly less foreign but even now it needs personalising more.
    Sussed out the international day with a girl I met at lunch who is from Bulgaria. Got handed a bunch of pamphlets and talked to about a lot of things I had already heard about, but overall the lanyard with ID pass holder was the highlight - holds my uni card, meal card and keys and everyone who missed out wants one.

    ... get Andy off on the
    train around 10:30 a.m. It was such a bummer, because Laura and I had such a
    good time with him! No one else fell off the bunk beds, after all. But, we were
    off to bigger things.

    By bigger, I mean Aurthur's Seat. At 822 feet
