Yesterday, I attended my first St Andrews ball! It was hosted by the David Russell Apartments (the residence hall even further out from town than mine, where my friend Emily lives) and the theme was A Midsummer Night's Dream.
Getting ready for the ball was actually quite fun even though I was by myself. I listened to Taylor Swift, Beyonce, and Justin Timberlake music, curled my hair with my new curling iron, and did my makeup remarkably well!
The ball was held at Kinkell Byre, a beautiful venue that was decorated spectacularly. It was incredibly crazy and chaotic inside; there were so many people! I definitely enjoyed the free ice cream from Janetta's (a St Andrews classic!), huge dance floor, and beautiful dresses. I was also quite excited to see lots of boys wearing kilts! #onlyintheuk

I had a great time dancing with some of my JSA friends and getting to see Lucy as well!

Going to a ball is such a uniquely St Andrews experience that it made me remember why I came over here in the first place. I can't wait for the next one! xx
