Forever Missing Dublin

I’ve now been back home and settled from Dublin for one week. Being home with no job, I’ve grown more bored than I realized I could. When I’m taking classes and am in the dead of the semester, I’d give anything to have absolutely no responsibilities, but now I’m realizing I oddly prefer to be…

Wish I Could Stay for Moher Time

I really can’t believe it is already my last week here in Ireland – halfway through my last week, nonetheless. Looking back on the past eight weeks, it seemed like the first four crept slowly and the last four sped through like I’ve never experienced. It seems like just last week I was meeting my…

Actually Working to Live

With only a week and a half left in Dublin, time is flying at an alarming pace. It seems like the whole second half of the summer has gone so fast now that we’re all completely settled in and just living what feels like normal life. At this point, work is quite boring, and I’m…

Leisuring in Lisbon

It is now weird to think that it is only the seventh week that I’ve been in Dublin – it feels as though I’ve been here for much longer. I feel completely assimilated to the city and haven’t felt like a tourist here in a long time. A few tourists recently have asked me how…

Belfast? More like Belslow!

As I am now approaching the end of week six, time is flying more than ever. The workdays fly by and weekends go even faster as I am trying to fit as much in as possible. I’ve been so lucky to call Dublin my home for the last six weeks, and I do truly feel…

Galway Girl

I am now over halfway through my summer in Dublin, and I realize how fast time is flying. After spending all day at my internship, I have been trying to try new restaurants, find new parks, or just spend time walking in city centre to make the most out of my free time. These past…

Adapting to the Cultural Craic

I am now about four weeks into my study abroad in Dublin, Ireland, and at this point I definitely feel assimilated and comfortable. Prior to this trip, I had only been outside of the United States a couple of times, so I very nervous when choosing a place to spend my summer. When I was…

Practically a Dublin Local

My third week in Dublin has been another really great one! I am definitely settled in and am having no difficulty getting around or adjusting to daily life. The roads are difficult to navigate in center city, but if you’re confident and just choose a way to walk, you’ll always make it where you need…

Howth You Doin’?

I’ve officially spent a week at my internship in Dublin. Talking to my friends, we all are having completely different experiences with the cultures and tasks at our companies. For example, some of my friends have very flexible start times and are let out early, where mine is more strict 9-5. It takes me about…
