I’ve been gone.
For a while.
Five months, to be exact.
I had reasons! I swear! No, seriously. My life has been a bit crazy for the past few months.
And that was only May.
As for the rest of the time, I’ve been occupied doing something else entirely. Remember when I decided, last-minute, to get an art minor? Well, I probably should have planned for it a little sooner than my senior year. I wanted to get this minor, but still graduate on time in the spring. This turned out to be… complicated.
Okay, I’m exaggerating. Northeastern offers exactly two basic art courses in the summer, courses I had already taken and didn’t need.
The art advisor hesitated.
She was serious. This was a real thing starting this year. If I went abroad for two months to some tiny, tiny town in Ireland, I could get the art minor and graduate by August.
Yeah. The situation was absurd. I couldn’t get my art minor at Northeastern this summer… I could only do it in Ireland.
So, dearest readers, that’s where I’ve been all summer.
And man, was that the weirdest trip of my life.
