Edinburgh: Tired and Sore

It's officially the end of day 2 here at the residential school. My feet are sore and I'm tired, although in regard to both of those, I do not seem to be the only one. It was a lab day today - drinking water analysis methods. Pretty easy for me for the most part since I've done quite a bit of chemistry over the years. Tonight we had a safety briefing which was pretty boring. But all in all, the day was good.

Tomorrow we'll be working on a research project, on what exactly we'll find out tomorrow, that we have to present by the end of the day. Not sure if I'm up for a day of intense group work. I'm starting to feel progressively more exhausted and thing like noise sensitivity are cropping up more and more. In the hopes of dampening the stress a bit, I didn't go to the cafeteria today for dinner, but had some quiet time in my room instead. I'm not sure it's helped, but it certainly didn't hurt.

The weather has improved and the sun has even come out a little bit. There is still hope for the field trip, then I guess ;-) Curiosity got the better of me today when Debbie and I were walking back to the halls of residence and heard some weird noise coming from a dust bin. Of course I went to check it out. So I went up to the bin and had a look only to surprise a squirrel on its search for food. It was probably as frightened as I was. I so didn't expect that!
