HAI

Saying it’s been a while feels like such an understatement.
Finally finished college, joined the gym and blogging will resume normally very soon.
To the lovely readers who took the time to e-mail me, I’m sorry I haven’t replied to you yet. I will, I promise.

Dear, Ireland.

Dear, Ireland.

Lately, my brain has felt a little like smush. It’s all about the thesis right now, but I’ve been allowing myself to think about what lies ahead as a soon-to-be graduate. Not fun.

You are in my bad books.

I don’t want to¬†emigrate. I don’t want my friends to emigrate. I’m anxious about how the next year will affect my mental health. How will I support myself?

I don’t think anyone knows what’s going to happen in 2011, but I have decided I will be staying here. I’m not leaving my home because of the mistakes another generation made. I want to be part of a generation that provides for the next, and I can’t help if I’m not here.

I think it might be time to stop talking about what I’m against and start finding things I’m for.

I am not leaving you and I’ll do everything I can to fix you.

Love, Sara.

P.S. Don’t think you’re off the hook just because I’m staying.

 

Happy New Year!

  • Buy a new bed.
  • Redecorate my bedroom.
  • Decorate and organise my study area. (nerd alert)
  • GRADUATE COLLEGE!
