Last Hurrah

Hello again, dear friends. I leave the UK tomorrow. Wow. I can’t believe it’s tomorrow. I left on a Wednesday last year, too. Since my last post? I moved out of London.

I told my mom I needed to write a blog post and didn’t know what to write about. She said, “Llamas!” Thanks, Mom. Today’s post brought to you by this off-topic little guy: This is not, in fact, a post about llamas. All I know about llamas is that they’re fluffy, they spit, and they […]
