good things about this week

1. Playing risk while drinking ouzo and wearing party hats
2. Sunday afternoon walks and staying on a swing set for a good hour
3. That episode of Girls that ends with Fleet Foxes
4. Running down the middle of the street and stopping traffic with hundreds of others to go see Noam Chomsky speak
5. Sitting round the table after dinner thinking up insulting nicknames for eachother

midnight sun

St Andrews is ridiculously light in summer (it only really gets dark between one and three) and we get to enjoy the most amazing stars and sunsets. After a day in the office and a couple of G+T's, dusk is the perfect time to hike illicitly across the golf course and watch the town start to light up in the blue from West Sands.

Say what you like about 9-5 life, I think it's great. You get to leave all your shit in the office, say TGIF with authority, and forget about it till Monday morning. This week we had numerous lovely house guests and friends over for dinner, chat and stupid youtube videos almost every night. The weekend was filled with frozen margaritas, very sweaty dancing, brunches, beach walks, curries, and that specific type of uncontrollable crying laughter where you know everyone will hate you if you don't stop very soon but you just can't. And it doesn't hurt that I'm actually kind of looking forward to getting back to my internship tomorrow.

filmic endeavours

So in my time between exams and interning, I managed to make another little film last week. Music by Yann Tiersen.
