Bleh. I've had to miss Uni today.
Arrived at Bathgate station in time for the 7:47 train, which would get me to HWU with 25 minutes to spare before my first lecture. Train doesn't show. That's fine, I'll get the next one, I'll still make it to HWU in the nick of time.
Train gets to Newbridge and suddenly stops. We wait for half an hour before we're told there's a major powercut at Haymarket, and we can't go any further.
"We have been instructed to return to Bathgate. All trains today are cancelled until further notice! We're sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. Please use alternate transport! "
Like what? The bus from Bathgate which takes 2 hours, and would get me there just to see my third and final lecture end? No thanks.
My dad goes on that 7.47 train!!
I'm incredibly annoyed with Aberdeen University. I've had to drop music from my degree because it clashes with Gaelic in the timetable. How stupid is that - why do they even bother having a degree titled "Gaelic and Music" when its actually impossible
to do??!! Furthermore, the uni gave me no help whasoever in helping me sort out my timetable. I'm truly pissed of.
So I'm now doing Gaelic and History of Art. I regret not going to art school. If I'd known I'd end up not doing music, I wouldn't have come to Aberdeen! But unfortunately I have no choice now and I'll just have to get on with it.
A little bit of light at the end of the tunnel though....the boy I went to dinner with tonight reminded me so much of Serge!
It was great
Its moments like these when you start thinking its worth being in Aberdeen after all.
