I can't believe it's been over a month since I came to Ireland...time flies crazy fast when you're having fun! It's really nice here and the people are so friendly, I'm really going to miss it when I leave. In fact, I like it here so much that I am trying to see if I can come here for graduate school. I don't know any specifics yet or how it will work out but I am definitely going to look into it because I would love to come back here for another extended period of time.
This week has been pretty chill so far. I've been relaxing around the aparmtent and doing some of my readings for class. Tonight the girls and I are going out for pizza and then tomorrow night or this weekend we're going to hit up some of the clubs/pubs. Then the weekend of October 20th I will be in London for 3 nights and 4 days, I can't wait! I am also going away the weekend of Halloween and then the first weekend in November is a possible weekend trip to Dublin. I am also going to try to fit Spain and Rome sometime in the November - December period.
I admit though I have been slacking with school and school work. I really need to catch up on readings and go to class consistently. I'm not as bad as I was in Bing but still, I really need to do my best b/c I don't want to get poor grades in the end. There's also a completely different system of academics over here - most of my classes give one big exam or paper at the end of the term and that's your grade for the class. I'm not going to lie, that makes me kind of nervous. We have tutorials though and I'll try to set up some study groups so things will be okay.
I'm so excited about all the trips coming up and I am also planning to do some more trips around Ireland while I can. I'm also excited because my dad is coming to visit the weekend of October 14th so that will be fun. I'm going to show him around the city, take him to some of the restaurants/pubs, and hopefully I am going to fit in a day trip or 2 for us. I'm debating between the Aran Islands and the Cliffs of Moher...we'll see.
