|I bought lots of food to justify taking up a table for several hours|
May Dip is a St Andrews tradition in which students run into the sea at sunrise on May 1st to cleanse themselves of their academic sins and commemorate John Honey, a student who saved 5 people from a shipwreck in 1800. I was planning on going despite the temperature being near freezing and the whole idea a bit daft....but then on my way back from dinner, I developed a terrible runny nose and sore throat. To be honest, I'm miserable and have no business splashing around in cold water.
Instead, I will be sleeping when the sun rises tomorrow morning and having a very chill day tomorrow to try to feel better in time for May Ball on Saturday! xx
