I can't believe I kind of forgot about this account for almost two years now. I'm going to try to actually update it now, since I have a lot more material for it than I have for my other (mostly cosplay) account.
So basically, quick update on where my life has been for the past two years: after I finished my year abroad in France and Ireland, I went back to my home university in Pennsylvania for my senior year, and I graduated this past May! Life for the past few months has been pretty mundane, as the job search has not been going as well as I'd hoped it would. But, I have had the good fortune of being accepted to an internship at National Sea Life Bray in County Wicklow, Ireland!! I'm so, so ecstatic that I'll be living in Ireland again for three months starting sometime in January. I cannot wait to get back over there and learn everything that I can from the people at Sea Life. They seem so wonderful and I know it'll be great.
