I have come to my decision. Drum roll, please.
I'm taking this semester off and going back to Texas to stay with Boyfriend. There has been a lot of stress in my home, family and life in the past year, and I think that I need time away in order to process it all and to return to school refreshed. I can still have my internship abroad this summer, and nothing which I now hold is jeopardized in any way. At this rate I probably won't graduate until I have grandchildren, but at least I will graduate sane.
I'm going to leave in a week or two and return for good in May. I anticipate two trips home before then, and at the end of May, I'm off, hopefully to Venice :)
I will still have access to the internet so I can blog.
