Two Left Feet

What a great week it has been! Everything about it has been fantastic, for the most part. For some reason, though, I all of a sudden forgot how to walk for a few days this week. My two left feet were not cooperating with my brain and I have no explanation for it, whatsoever. I […]

Mind Yourself

Being in a new place, studying abroad, working, etc., is an extremely exciting experience. There is so much to see and to do and you feel as though you have to see and do all of these things at one time. I have about three months remaining on this amazing journey here in Ireland and […]

Half Way There

“Don’t stay in Ireland too long, you’ll become Irish. Tell tale signs include jaywalking and drinking too much. If you do that you’re half way there.” I suppose I’m half way there then, huh? It’s fine, though, it’s one of those “just let it happen” sort of things. I am pretty sure I was jaywalking […]

When in Killarney…

What happens when you put 18 19 to 22-year-old study abroad students in a house in Killarney, Ireland for a weekend? A lot of damn fun, that’s what! That was by far the best weekend I have had yet since being in Ireland. Everything about the weekend was absolutely amazing and I would totally replay […]

Over the past couple of days I have encountered things that have bothered me and really put a different meaning to happiness and helped me to better understand […]

“My umbrella is backwards”

Sorry, Mom, if you’re reading this it’s too late. I’m staying in Ireland. I’m not, though. I have only been in Ireland for just under two weeks and I can honestly say that if I were given the chance, (and received an amazing job offer), there’d be no question of me moving here. I love just […]

Drink Drank Dublin

My first weekend in Ireland was really quite eventful, to say the least. What happens in Ireland does(n’t) stay in Ireland. Dublin is such a global city and I think it makes the experience here all that much more enjoyable and relaxing. It lets you know that you are not the only foreigner in the […]

Get Lost, Yeah?

I’ve only been here for a week and I already don’t want to leave. Ireland is everything I imagined it to be and so much more. This is my first time being away from home for more than a few weeks and I get to spend these four months in Ireland, and I certainly could not […]
