Riding the train bleary-eyed to Zone 6 London on the morning of September 30th, I made the split-second decision to book a 20 quid flight to Ireland. I did this for a combination of three reasons:
(a) anchor myself in my decision to leave school come Friday
(b) gain some much-needed perspective and wrap my head around what could be next
(c) spend money that I didn’t have. You choose which reason you find most believable.
Either way, I found myself off to Dublin the following Tuesday afternoon!
