I know, I know…
I should be posting more, I know. But what with starting a new semester, bank problems, a whole slew of essays, and travel plans, I have not found the time.
But no one cares about how busy I’ve been.
This past weekend IFSA took us to North Wales for their Adventure Weekend, I couldn’t go last semester because I would have had to miss two classes but this semester I was totally ready. I chose to do mine exploration, which was an all day activity, and let me just say that it was awesome. I was not expecting to enjoy it as much as I did. That whole area of North Wales is covered in old slate mines used mainly in Victorian times, shutting down around 1950, so for about 4 hours we got to explore one of them. And this exploring was not just wandering around, it involved, climbing up a waterfall, zip lining across a deep pool of water, belaying down a drop, and finally climbing up an air shaft to get out. All of which was bookended by a hike up and down the hill. It was incredible.
Other than that, I’ve got one more essay to do (or at least get mostly done) before spring break. I will be spending spring break with my sister in Europe. She’s got the same break as I do so she’s flying over next Friday. We’re doing London then a few places in France and Italy than she’s flying back to New York from Zurich, and I’m flying back to London, although I have yet to book that flight. Let’s just say that I’m going to have a very busy next 7 days with planning and essay writing before I set out for London, but at least I won’t be fighting jetlag.
