Congratulations to all my mates, we've finally finished the dissertation! The vive-voce will be held about two weeks later. This is the time for us to relax. The dissertation process is really tough, but interesting. It taught me how to fully complete a research project. When I saw the bound report in front of me, I felt very proud. Hopefully everyone will achieve their desired marks and graduate favorably.
I've noticed that this is the busiest period of Edinburgh – the Edinburgh Art Festival as well as the Edinburgh Fringe Festival happen during the month of August (along with a number of other arts festivals). People from all over the world come to Edinburgh to enjoy the most exciting events in August. Artists are playing music and drawing along the Royal Mile. People are gathering together, singing, dancing, drinking all the time and enjoying the wonderful time. You must not forget the Royal Edinburgh Military TATTOO. This is called “The greatest show on Earth”. This is a really big event held in Edinburgh Castle Esplanade. My friends and I brought the tickets for the last day, and hopefully we will have a great time.
The final thing I want to say is I will really miss this city and the university. The time I spent here was wonderful. I met so many brilliant people and learnt so much advanced knowledge and techniques. I came to UK for three years, and I can guarantee Edinburgh is the most beautiful city and the people here are the friendliest. If possible, I hope I can stay here as long as possible. This is the city not only you will feel comfortable, but also you will love.
