Dear followers, sparse as you are, although my blog has been very inactive and checking my tumblr has been sporadic at best, I will be studying for a Masters degree in Comparative Literature at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland (for those of you that don’t know, I’m originally from California). I’m going to try to travel in between my studies during the semester, as I THINK my schedule will allow for a bit of traveling on the weekends. I’ve made it a point to refrain from posting even remotely personal things on my blog, and this will probably change at least a little bit (this remains to be seen). I may revert to keeping a traditional journal, but for now I’ll try my best to keep it updated. I come from a relatively regional school in Southern California; going to a large research-based University is terrifying to me. I studied Sociology for three years, and essentially did ALL of the Comparative Literature requirements in one year while completing an honors thesis for Soc. It was a weird time.
As for the next ten days, I’ll be traveling through Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. I had planned for Denmark, the Netherlands, and Belgium, but my visa was delayed and I had to move things around (that was a nightmare). I’ll also be chronicling my experiences as a vegan in these countries, and Scotland too, for that matter.
To the few of you I regularly speak with, I’m sorry for not responding to messages more quickly. The past few weeks have been really weird.
TL;DR: I am an American who will be completing a masters in Comparative Literature at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland; this blog is going to chronicling that experience and related travel experiences.
