A Scottish Tribute to the Academy

Today I went on a bus tour of Musselburgh and Edinburgh with the international relations office at QMU. It is so funny to think of myself as international! It was a great trip filled with a trip to the famous Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile and other popular sites.

But the BEST site was at The Palace of the HolyroodHouse or in english the Palace of the HOLY CROSS! OMG OMG OMG!

Me outside of the Palace

As you may or may not know, I went to Holy Cross Elementary for middle school and then The Academy of the Holy Cross (AHC) for high school. AHC is an all girls high school in Maryland, where I spent some fun high school days

The ironic part is that yesterday or the day before (depending on when this goes up) was Holy Cross Day. Even though I am an alum of the school, it still holds a special place in my heart, not only for the experiences that I had (both good and bad) but for the friends that I met there. No one would have thought that 9+ years later, that I would still be friends with many of the girls that I met their. We have been through the best and the worst of times together and I don't know what I would do without them. 



So to my LOTA's (Ladies of the Academy), todays post is for you! Know that even though I am far from you now, you are in my heart. I am glad that I have found this place that reminds me of you all. 

Love your LOTA,
Mike Jones

Ps. Girls, look in the mail, something from the palace is coming your way!
