The last post that I wrote on here is dated June 21st. Over a month ago. I was in England then, just over a week away from coming home. So much has changed since then.
I’ve been back in the States for over a month now, at University (that I am always tempted to call “uni” after hearing it called that so often in Oxford). I’m sitting on my bed in my apartment, listening to this song (by Dirk Maassen), whose music I’ve become addicted to (after he let me use Solstice d’Ete in this project).

It’s been a crazy month, and it is hard to believe that this evening I’ll be packing my things (again) to leave school for the next few weeks. However, because I can’t actually stay away from school very long, I’ll just be moving a short ways down the road. No big deal.
This evening I finally sat down and edited the second half of my England photos, so expect to see some of those to be popping up in the near future (I’m including a few in this post.).

For me, school starts again in about two weeks or so. All of my classes this semester are either major or minor classes, so I’m excited about, well, all of them.
I should write a full post on this, but seriously; don’t commit a huge portion of your life to doing something you hate – if you hate your major or your job, then that’ll make the rest of your life miserable as well. I adore being an English major, and the people who say that I can never get a job with it tend to be naysayers who underestimate the power of loving what you do for a job. I think enthusiasm is an equally important part of the interview process, you know? (My current boss can attest to the part of my interview where I talked for a full 5 or 10 minutes on how much I loved libraries. I got the job. What can I say? I really do love libraries.) …I’ll get off my soapbox now.

To conclude for now – I have so many stories and photographs to share with you all. I’m so excited to be back on this little blog and can’t wait to talk with each of you over the course of the next semester. Stay in touch – leave a comment or tweet at me with any questions or comments you may have. It’ll be a busy semester, for sure, but more experiences mean more stories for you, right?
