My Week with Marilyn, Woo Woos and Househunting in Edinburgh


Good news, I’m half way through my literature review! Bad news, I have an assessed presentation today in Globalization and Innovation in China…

Since my last blog post I’ve been working like a dog. The target everyday has been to arrive at Hallward Library by no later than 9:30am.

For the past week or so I’ve been really good! I learn’t last year though that constant working early, working all day, and working some more will drive me nuts!

So over the week I took advantage of Orange Wednesdays like most rational cinema-goers and went to see My Week with Marilyn- awesome film! Highly recommended folks!

I also took advantage of the 2-4-1 cocktails deal at The Slug and Lettuce in town with some of my girlfriends. Since we haven’t sat down to catch up over drinks in a while it was a brilliant night!


~that and I was in all likelihood going mad reading journals all day =^_^=

Woo Woos and Dune Bugs

I’ve also started to house hunt in Edinburgh for after graduation. I’m very lucky as I have a graduate scheme secured in September. The first 18 months of my placement will be up north so I best find a place to live! I spent my summer in Edinburgh so it’s nothing scary or unknown to me. Here are some photos of cool places in Edinburgh city centre that I thought I’d share. What’s even more awesome is that two Giant Pandas from China have arrived at Edinburgh Zoo recently. Seeing them will be the first thing I do when I get up there.

If you are one of those poor students slaving away looking for an internship or grad scheme- good luck and stay strong. I know exactly the kind of stress that applications and numerical reasoning tests can do to you. Stay at it though, you’ll get there.

Love, Kay
