Friendship at Uni

My first two weeks at Dundee have felt like starting a new school, having to introduce myself so often and start afresh with new people that I’ve never met before.

I hopped on the train from Dundee to Edinburgh Waverley, of which the journey is approximately an hour and a half, and stayed in a lovely hotel for two nights.   On Saturday, I decided to visit St. Giles Cathedral on the Royal Mile and when I arrived...
