It's been a while since my last blog post. I was happily jotting about Italy and Dublin with John. Sadly, he had to leave a few days ago, so now it's just me, my troubled internet connection, and my massive amount of essays left here on the Emerald Isle.
Since I'm flying home before the exam period concludes (I tried to change to a later flight once I learned my finals schedule, but there was literally nothing available before Christmas), I've been assigned essays in lieu. It sounds like it should be a big lucky break for me, but in reality it will be a ton of work. I have approximately four weeks to write four essays, each with around a 5,000 word limit. So, 20,000 words from now I will be getting on an airplane home. It sounds so much closer in days.
In the meantime, I plan to work a lot and blog a little. I will be blogging over the next several days about the trip to Italy with my notes taken when we were there. I can safely say that Rome was the most amazing place I've been to yet. It was absolutely beautiful, the food was incredible, and there were so many sights to see. The food was so good as a matter of fact that I'm going to devote an entire post simply to eating in Italy.
Less than a month left on my adventure abroad. I can't believe it's gone by so quickly!
