I must be the worst blogger for stopping in the middle of a story. My school schedule is a little less full, so I will make it my new (school) year’s resolution to update you each Wednesday.

Edit: That was before I started school and the work hit me in the face. I’m so terribly sorry to everyone who has been awaiting this post for months. At the moment, I’m in Ireland and will be posting about that very soon, though because of space issues, you may be diverted to a temporary page while I try to figure out this website…
