I'm back from london and Ireland! I am going to spend this week recovering from jetlag and a productive (in a bad way) cough, chronicling my adventures in writing while it's still relatively fresh, while I wait for news on my camera (so i can then chronicle visually). yes, i stupidly left my camera on the plane at SFO. United should be in touch with me shortly, fingers crossed.
ps - i had an amazing time. :)
