I guess Summer came for me when I officially received my results to my house in the post. Although the results were released online, it wasn’t official for me until 2 days or so later the envelope stamped Aston university came with a wodge of my results transcript.

So far it had been endless days of catching up with Game of Thrones,  a four week summer job mentoring but after that the highlight for me so far…. my road trip to Scotland came!!. I think I have had my license for just over a year but never have I driven for as long as I did on the way to Scotland. It was filled with all the advice from the experienced drivers ” Don’t exceed the speed limit” “slow and steady” ” Take plenty of breaks”. I would like to think I listened to most of them :P.

With my mum backseat driving, the car packed full of suitcases, my auntie and cousin also joining us this was surely going to be a journey to remember!

4am struck and my alarm went off. I remember frantically sticking bags in the boot, yelling to wake everyone up..I mean who  would  really want to get caught up in the Monday morning rush hour traffic?

5am, and I had everyone getting into the car, saying their prayers for the 300 mile Journey ahead haha. I guess looking back when I had my first lecture Monday 9am *story for another day* -shy little me- I never saw myself being capable of doing that 6 hour journey. Its all part of this journey where I am learning more about myself and I guess it all began when I came to uni.

But yeah… Scotland was fun! We didnt get lost, except on the way back when we went up to Glasgow and bewildered by the enormity of the roads I missed my turn. However it has been a fun summer. 7 nights, most o f them rain filled, a beach 5 minutes walk from our accommodation, and really cool accents.

 

What more could I ask for ? Now the prep for going back to Aston slowly…and I mean very slowly …begins. 😛
