I wanted to be a fearless adventurer like my male heroes, but a voice kept warning me: Don’t get yourself raped.
I’m at the gate at Dublin Airport getting ready to board my plane back to the States…
it’s pathetic how sad this is making me.
So I left London yesterday morning, and took a train to Holyhead, Wales, and then took a ferry over to Dublin. I have two more days here in Dublin, and then I’m flying back to the States.
To recap my summer, I will have:
But I’m kind of worried that nomadism and living out of a duffel bag has become too integral to my life? I’ve gone to so many different places this summer, travelling with and meeting so many different people. I guess I’m just nervous that I’m not going to adjust well to living in a dorm room and having a planned, routine life attending university again. Don’t get me wrong, I’m so excited to see Erica and my bitches, but this is going to be hard.
Lots of times I just want to have a beard, and wear ‘men’s’ autumn/winter clothing, and live in the woods, and drink lots of hot coffee made in a french press, and read good books, and play lots of music, and have a big fireplace, and smoke a decent amount of weed, and have a pet bear, and travel regularly, and see nifty things, and meet nifty people, and do it all with this amazing girl.
But then I remember that the world is a hot fucking mess, and there is anarchy to spread and revolutions to start.

I just booked a flight to Dublin.
My Swartz and I will be getting to Dublin about ~2 weeks before our study abroad starts in London so that we can fuck around Europe for a lil bit.
I AM JUST SO FUCKING EXCITED
Everyone is so used to me talking about dropping out of school and becoming a nomad…
But meow that I’m going to Europe this summer, I’m actually not joking when I say I might not come back.
I guess they’re in for a surprise.
I’m going to end up graduating with a Master’s degree, and then spending the rest of my life on a perpetual road trip with no money or possessions.
