Halfway through the third block, life got real. All of a sudden, we had half a dozen different assignments that had to be completed before our program trip over the weekend to Edinburgh. What may be normal back home at Fairfield suddenly felt like the world was coming to an end. To top it off, we had registration for next semester back at Fairfield in the middle of the week. Despite the seemingly insurmountable stress, we found small ways to enjoy the week before heading off to Scotland for the weekend.

On Tuesday, Erin showed me St. George’s Gardens, which I had never seen before. The garden is near the Global Institute, and is set behind bushes so that it does not stick out to the random passerby. When stepping into the garden, the noise and chaos of the London streets immediately slips away, and it is the perfect place to relax on a warmer spring day.
