Classes have started and the party has officially ended. Well, maybe not so much. But now I have to be all responsible because I do have class at 8:15 am (and I was not a happy camper this morning, let me tell you!)
Nothing too major has happened. At orientation Sunday afternoon, she asked for volunteers to be the pint-of-contact people between the town and the school. Your’s truly volunteered. I get to help plan events, meet with locals, and make sure everyone on the trip is doing okay. I figured this was a good way for me to meet the other people on this adventure with me (and if you really know me, you know I just like to be in charge of things!).
Last night our wonderful professor took us all to the pub Merry’s and proceeded to buy everyone there first round. I tried a Jameson and Ginger, and it was really good. We spent the night sampling all other types of delicious Irish drinks, and still managed to wake up at the ass-crack of dawn for class.
My classes should be good. Lot of Irish history, which I ‘m super excited about. My first class is Lifespan Development, followed by The Great War, followed by Modern Irish Literature and Film. On Tuesday/Thursday, I have my Ethics class. It’s not a heavy course load by any stretch of the imagination for which I am very grateful.
And now, since I have nothing else to report, prepare yourselves for photo overload. You were warned…
And with that, I will bid you folks all a good night.
I warned you about all the pictures!
