It’s been the craic.

My room in Thomond Village once had ample space compared to several typical college dorms, but now looks like the winds of Ireland entered in full swing piling clothes, various Irish cuisine, and magazines cut up from my craft projects. I can’t stand mess in my room, especially when acknowledging the reason behind the chaos. […]

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 […]

Maybe I need to resort my priorities…

Maybe Ron had a point when he famously noted Hermonine’s lack of concrete confidence in her priorities. If you may recall, prior to my arrival in the wonderful green isle of Ireland, capturing the heart of an Irish prince was number one on my Study Abroad Bucket List. Sure the shimmery ginger locks, and never faltering hospitality […]

‘Angel Lane’ wasn’t so heavenly.

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 […]

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 […]

How aren’t you asleep?

The consistent rebuttle to the afternoon and evening’s festivities in Limerick, Ireland. Yes, I have arrived on the island not of pure green beauty but of a thoroughly frosted environment of leave less winter trees bathed deeply in a thick blanket of chilled fog. Several of those who already know this campus as home have commented on […]
