If I hadn’t attended UL.

I sure would have missed an experience unavailable in any other context. I find myself chuckling when reflecting on my initial adrenaline inspired ‘regrets’ anticipating a semester worse than a sister school found within the urban capital of Dublin. Continuously justifying to myself that the classes would be more related to my creative major of Advertising & […]

My excuse? Ireland almost froze me.

Obviously the timely documentation of Irish adventure was inevitably going to falter at some point. Sorry to prick you with that sharp end for an unacceptable period of days, yet hopefully by acknowledging my recent inconsistency, we can follow a road paved in my deepest and most sincere apologies for those closely following what now have been termed suspenseful […]

Come along where outcasts are cool.

Friday. “How many friends did you make tonight Annie? 400?”…”Mmm I’d be lying if I said more than 350.” Putting aside the fun and games of exaggerated extensions of my friendships made here at UL, coining myself as a social butterfly could in order. There really is no experience I have been submitted to in […]

‘Angel Lane’ wasn’t so heavenly.

But should I have expected anything more from a club associated with this name? Sure it blasted top chartered hits in the typical fashion of such a venue, yet what made it fall flat was in fact the lack of actual dancing. Within the center of the location, a sea of hormonal Irish lads and […]

The sun really exists!

Is my alarm really going off? I constantly pose this question at myself these mornings in Ireland for it seems I don’t place head to pillow until the late hours of the a.m. Must…wake…up…five more minutes. Strummm! Integrating myself into the Irish life style hasn’t been a far cry seeing that I constantly am being […]

What is this ‘education’ you speak of?

Yes, after an entire week of never ending activities, staying up until the wee hours of the mornin’, and having some good ole craic, we all quickly discovered that the shenanigans would have to eventually end…sort of. The Irish truly never stop partying and going out to the pubs. Literally every night; well Tuesday and […]

Oh so much more than Milk.

I can’t believe I was able to rise at 9:00am the next morning[Saturday] having gone to bed at 6am the previous day, yet I had been looking forward to the this event all week! A visit to a ‘Milk market’ had been thrown around all week and from what I gathered, it would be similar […]

Caramelomena Kremidia : καραμελωμένα κρεμμύδια

University of Limerick will harbor another 17,000 students from across the world on Monday, yet for our week long adventure meeting those studying abroad from the States, we also have encountered students within the Eramus program otherwise known as the individuals attending the institute from a country outside North America. As far as I have gathered, non-Americans[or […]

The little green thing with the jelly-cake. Hashtag, craic.

Pronounced like, ‘crack’, the Irish constantly heavily sprinkle this word into conversation explaining its connotation as fun like, ‘What great craic!”, “It was craic!” Hilarious when we offered its popularity to our Hungarian roommate Ben who immediately shook his head exclaiming, “No. no, not for me thank you.” Definitely one of the most common terms […]
