Time always seems to
pass slower when
you’re anticipating that big trip.
Though it might be fair to

My destination in two weeks
is Waterford, Ireland where I will be studying for one semester. I’m not new to

like gazing at the Mona Lisa or Venus de Milo at the Louvre, or the Colosseum
in Rome, were lost on me at that age, as I was too busy chasing pigeons.
time around we’re going to change all that, and if I have time, I’ll do some
school work along the way, ha-ha, kidding.
