Sunday Summary #13

1.Edinburgh skyline 2.Easter egg treats 3.Daffodils in the Meadows 4.Dissertation reading

I have been loving the weather this week, it feels like summer is definitely on its way. I’ve cheated a little bit with the first photo in this week’s post as it was actually taken last summer, but I found it when I was tidying up my computer the other day and it reminded me how much I love summer in Edinburgh. Am I the only one that loves being a tourist in your own city? Taking little day trips and visiting all the sights and museums is always fun and it feels like you’re getting a mini holiday without having to go further than a bus journey away!

The only thing I’ve not been loving about the sunny weather is the fact I’ve been stuck inside doing uni work. As I can’t go out and play, I’ve been sat beside the window all day with it wide open so I can pretend I’m outside! I’ve got an essay due for tomorrow which is just about finished (just need to tidy up a few bits and then print it off, which always seems to take hours!) and then my dissertation is due next Tuesday. I’m not really feeling stressed out about it at all which is a good thing, although it does worry me slightly that I’m so laid back about it, I thought I would be majorly panicking in the week or two before it was due! The only thing I’m worried about is having to get it bound etc. – despite being here for nearly 4 years, I’ve never even used the library printers before, uhoh!

Aside from that, this week has been pretty boring. I didn’t even go out this weekend (the first Saturday I’ve stayed in so far this year!) as all my friends are busy with uni work too. It was so weird to wake up on a Sunday morning without a hangover! Usually I don’t even bother getting out of bed on Sunday (apart from at 10pm to watch Desperate Housewives!) but I’ve had quite a productive day today. Might even tidy the flat tonight if I get this essay finished soon!

What have you been up to this week?

  • Kfedland says:

    Sounds like a chilled weekend for you. You've now made me want an easter egg!xx

  • Kirsty says:

    Wow what a beautiful photo of Edinburgh! This makes me to get the train over to Edinburgh in the summer and spend days on end in the sun. But we can all dream, Scottish weather is way too unpredictable for that aha x

  • Lesley says:

    Edinburgh is one of the most beautiful cities I've ever been to. I tell everyone about it because it's not often mentioned as a travel destination. So jealous of those daffodils! Hopefully ours are up soon! 🙂

    Spring is most definitely here! Edinburgh looks so lovely – I must visit one day!

  • EilidhPie says:

    I can totally relate to this – I'm currently sitting in the glorious sunshine waiting on a bus to Stirling so I can huddle away in a lab and do my dissertation. That's scary yours is due in so soon – I have a month left yet! Days like this make me want to go on a wee road trip to St Andrews – or, failing that, Kelvingrove Park! Xo

    I need to go to Edinburgh, especially after seeing these photos! Gorgeous. I was stuck indoors revising last summer whilst all my friends were out enjoying themselves, it was torture! Good luck with it! xxx

  • Gem says:

    I work in a uni library and don't want to see another stressed MA student for a while 😉 so many people getting wound up about the printers and binding.
    I've been spending too much money on ebay and helping MA students find books the past few weeks xx
