I'm back in the States and more or less settled. By which I mean, I'm living with my grandparents and washing sheets at a motel for not much more than minimum wage. I'm only three days in, and while the management and my coworkers are fabulous, manual labor at an understaffed motel/campground may make communist out of me. Psyche! I've always been a communist.
I'm so grateful and happy to have had the opportunity to live in the U.K., and I hope to return to Wales and see my friends soon, as well as hike the West Highland Way someday...
I'll be keeping this blog up for a while for family and friends who are curious and didn't keep track while I was sporadically updating. I have a Tumblog in the meantime at lakaddy.tumblr.com full of silly stuff you may or may not care about. I'll be starting the arduous process of applying to grad schools and rereading Ulysses so I can polish up a paper for publication. I may start another Blogger blog on my academic and creative writing musings soon.
I'll keep you posted.
Love and unicorns,

So long, Wales. It's been breathtaking.

A few weeks ago, the student union organized a trip to Stratford-upon-Avon for the international students. Free transportation and free tickets to see a Royal Shakespeare company production of The Tempest. Aw, yeah. The play was fan-freakin-tastic, with just the right combination of creepy, funny, and sad elements. And that part where Ariel turns into a harpy thing and basically scares the shit out of everyone? Legit. Holy crap.
