Hello all! Well, it's been quite... *quite* a long while.
At the moment, I am about to send in my last assessment for An Cùrsa Adhartais for the year. I have learned lots this year, and, I am happy to say, furthered my Gaelic skills. Now some of the verbal assessments are conversations and I have quite enjoyed them. I am usually paired with Sarah, whose Gaelic I very much admire, and we a' capadaich really well together.
I also met recently with a representative from U of Glasgow, which was informative and interesting. I am definitely going to be applying to Glasgow, Edinburgh, and Aberdeen this fall for college. Whether I end up attending any of them is another matter, but I feel more and more at peace with my decision to at least *consider* Scotland for college and, well, life! Things are still very much in pencil at this point, though. It's funny, I am super excited about the possibility of going to school in Scotland, but whenever I think about leaving the US I get sad... the going is exciting, but the leaving, not so much.
In other news, I am off to two dance camps in the next two weeks, and then the US Nationals for highland dancing (yes, I made it to Nationals!!). I am also singing this weekend at the Ohio mòd.
Well that was a quick update, and I hope to be back soon with more personal posts and more Gaelic-y stuff!!
