Like a bad sickness, I am back from Ireland.
Ok, I'm back at school. Its the start of senior year. Time for the whole double majoring thing to start hitting me. I have two 40 page thesises due before I graduate: one this semester and another the next.
I should probably be doing reading for the English Reniassance Lit class, but Thomas More's Utopia is not the most exciting work I have ever read. Right up there with, dare I say it, Peers Plowman.
But on a completely different note. . .
CHORUS IS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE NOW!!!!!!!! I bought my copy last night.
Hmm, maybe I should watch that with the commentary track turned on. . .
But anyway, a little more on Ireland:
Ireland, as I had said before, was awesome. It is a beautiful country dripping with a history and faith that I have not seen in other places. Unfortunately, it is being brushed away, though not completely. It is a more subtle brushing, a sort of semi-visible, semi-hidden picture of a world from long ago. The historical sites do not tell the whole story for fear of offending. I can see why, with all the more recent turmoil in the country, but still, ignoring or airbrushing history? Maybe its just the historian in me, but I don't think that's right.
I should put samples of my journal on the blog in the coming week. Hopefully.
