I got back from Northern Ireland a day ago, on the eighteenth. It was a pretty great experience, to say in the least!
Some change occurred, I think, which is pretty great unto itself.
Inspiration is slowly leaking back. Energy is recharging.
I made some new friends over there, too, Craig and Clio and Erin and Sarah and Shannen and Duncan- the list goes on, I'm just in the middle of making tea so it's too difficult to list all of the names out- and I got some new stuff and new life experience fuck yeah. I feel like I've dropped, though, because I'm suffering serious feelings whenever I hear something that reminds me of them. It's unfortunate.
They have a whole lot more freedom over there as teenagers, which is ironic coming from an American. There was a bit of culture shock, there. They talk about drinking really openly in Belfast, which was weird because it's almost treated as a taboo (but not quite) in the States. Had one of my first parties that I was allowed to drink at on the Wednesday, which was fucking awesome. Turns out that even if Clio was staggering drunk, she was a master at beer pong (which the Americans taught her, of course). Craig also started to try and sing The Star Spangled Banner and fell off the couch giggling about how much he loved American people. It was an awesome night.
What else. Hm.
I also called some thirty year old guy I bumped into at Tesco "sweetheart".
Talking about Tesco, if you're a fifteen year old American girl suffering from lack of sleep and jet lag, walking into a Tesco is fucking surreal. Not even joking. It was like Walmart and Target and a food co-op smashed into each other with multiple floors and this giant glass wall and slanted people-walker things and I must have looked like I was on an acid trip because I was just wobbling around behind my host family staring at everything and God, it was the weirdest fucking thing ever.
I shouldn't ever go on LSD.
A positive point is my parents! I may be able to get Facebook so I can talk with all of my friends!
If anyone wants me to ramble about Northern Ireland to them, just note me.
