Beginnings

It’s a rough life, being a blogger. Well.

Week 2 Semester 1

Ahhh! Windy weather, mostly sunny but always nice…I kinda missed the Dundee weather. But no worries, I am here and I can’t wait to start. To start off, welcome back to my fellow year 2s (yes, we made it!) Well, I am sure by now you would have read so many blogs on how amazing the freshers’ week was.
