I think Glasgow is my second home because whenever I travel to somewhere, as soon as I step outside of the train I am just like, "Oh, I really wish I was back home in Glasgow." I have established my life and just my relations in Glasgow now. And then I picked it again for my masters because I I'm not ready to leave yet.
