Well it’s December 20th and unlike my colleagues at USC, I’m still taking exams across the pond at the University of Edinburgh.  Tomorrow is my last final, and then I’m off to D.C. for the winter holiday!  I can’t wait to get back to see my family and relax for a bit.  After a week in D.C., I’m going to Park City, Utah for another weeks to visit a friend and go skiing!  And then it’s off to USC for the spring semester!  I know once I get home I’ll begin to miss my time here in Edinburgh.  For the past month or so, the entire city has been alight from the Christmas Market that popped up in the center of town.  There are fun rides and fantastic food and drink to be had.  I’ve been to the market too many times to count, and it’s always made me like I’m at home.  Anyway, I’m signing off for the holidays.  But I’ll be back in full swing come January!
