Finally Settling In

Finally I am starting to feel at home in St. Andrews.  Some things are still weird, but today I was reminded how lucky I am to be studying here and why I wanted to come here in the first place.  I went for a walk on The Scores, the street right along the water, in search of the Museum to go on what is scheduled as a “highlight tour”.  Needless to say, I passed it without realizing it and, when I finally found it, I couldn’t tell if there were still tours available.  It didn’t matter though.  In my passing it I ended up walking through the main quad and then over to where the ruins of the Castle are.  This area looks right over the water and, I have to say, with the sun casting shadows and the blue sky with big white clouds in the background, it was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.  Of course, I forgot my camera in the room, like I always do, but I will try to get pictures soon and post them.  Nevertheless, seeing this made everything click for me and made me realize how, even though I miss my home, my family, and my friends, I am truly fortunate to be here, studying in a place so rich with history and beauty.
