In less than a month, I’m going to be in Havana, Cuba—definitely not a place to which I imagined I’d be able to travel any time soon. I’m so excited to be spending two weeks of my Christmas break exploring, writing, and getting out of the chilly Midwest.
The writing workshop is a 3 s.h. class, so we are meeting every day and that is going to be intense and at some point, undoubtedly, annoying, but I’m glad that I will have a record of basically every day, whether I feel like making time for it or not.
Then when I get back, maybe I’ll actually use this blog and post some of the stuff here. Internet and phone won’t really be available while I’m there, (glorious! though mildly frightening for Mom and Dad), so I will probably bombard tumblr with all the details over the first few weeks of next semester—my last semester at college (eek!) and hopefully my first that isn’t completely brutal. All of the insanity the past two years means that I can finally take a lighter load and maybe have some time to oh, I dunno… Find a job and a place to live after I get kicked out into the cruel, “real” world? Better get back to thesis editing and paper writing so that that can actually happen though.
