22/08/16: What’s Coming Up

Man, oh man, I submit my thesis today. Including cover page, index, appendices, references, and the actual content itself, it’s 50+ pages. It’s good to be done, but I was using the Gatsby Party as the bookend of the summer and that was a week ago…

The Gatsby Party was the day before my 25th birthday, so that was awesome timing. Then, the day after my birthday I went to visit my friend Edith in Killarney, Co. Kerry. It was great seeing her and Maël (her boyf) before they move to France in September, although I will see them in Maynooth for her graduation. It seems like only yesterday she was a first year! (Edith and I met when we lived together when I was studying abroad, she was a first year at the time.)

This week (on the 25th!) I go to Barcelona and from there I head to Paris. I’m going to be staying on a friend’s couch in Barcelona and my dad got me a hotel room for my birthday in Paris (I called my mom to ask for advice on booking a hostel because the cost:hostel ratio was not worth it and instead ended up with a hotel room! BEST FAM).

Then I’ll be back in Ireland for a week and a bit before Katie comes to visit, so hopefully in that time I can visit a friend in Limerick, go to Howth with some other friends, and pack… Maybe I’ll go to Howth with Katie and my friends here! Two birds, one trip.

Then once Katie is here, we’re going to Edinburgh and then traveling around Ireland and then we’re flying home together! I’m very excited to go home. 😀

In the meantime, there’s still posts scheduled in my portfolio for every Monday at 4:30pm and a new series of articles is going to post here on travel tips for Katie called Travel in (Relative) Style. They’ll post at 4:30pm, too! I’m also working on a page for the site that will have a description of the projects and posts and each of the sections of this site, since there isn’t one of those…

    1. I am VERY busy, but that’s the way to be! Time will fly and all this busy-ness is the reason I decided to stay through September instead of coming home around, oooh, now. 😛
