Howdy friends and foes. Hopefully it's no surprise to you that I'm leaving for six weeks for Ireland, I think I've probably drunkenly bragged/lamented to you at least thrice. Three's a charm! Yes I'm excited and yes I'm scared but yes I know I would've been kicking the crap out of myself if I didn't apply for this program.
I'll be writing, drinking, and making new friends overseas. Everything I'm hearing is all positive so it should be a ball. And I know my family comes from Ireland so I really want to see if there's a Noonan Pub somewhere..in fact I'm almost certain there is. I shall travel all day and all night if I can't find one! Great fortune soon to come.
It's true that my dad is 100% Irish and that I'm 62.5% Irish and that I come from a family who's very very into our heritage. Hence why I know the exact percent. Ah, in my youth I prided myself upon knowing that fact and now I feel silly.
This is a place I've dreamed of going to. I just can't believe that not only will I be visiting Ireland, I'll actually be going to school in Ireland. Like a local..except I won't be attending a real university there but a study abroad center-nevertheless it is cool. Dublin, Ireland to be exact.
