Meeting the Family

With another week down the bus ride to the Stacks Pharmacy Support Office in Finglas is feeling less like a fun excursion into Dublin and more like a commute. That’s how things are starting to go as the internship progresses, the once constant training is turning into me doing work by myself. This provides both…

Time is Flying!

It is hard to believe I am starting the third week of my internship here in Ireland. It’s been an awesome trip so far with awesome experiences, great people, and amazing food! After battling through a rough cold in Ireland’s rainy weather, I feel much more adjusted and ready to tackle my internship this week….

Work Hard Play Hard

I have now finished two whole weeks at my internship, and three weeks here in Ireland overall. So far, I love it. Going out and exploring the country or the city of Dublin has brought me some great experiences so far that I will not forget. The city of Dublin is one of the greatest…

Bray All Day

Throughout my internship I have discovered that I am progressively receiving more and more responsibility. With that, my time frames are a bit more unclear and they tend to not remind me of tasks they have only told me to complete once. I am expected to write down what they tell me and finish it…

More Castles, More McGlynns

This past week was filled with many activities, but what I found most exciting was meeting some of my cousins who live in Longford. My dad’s side of the family is quite large, and I’ve always known that I’ve had some distant (2nd?) cousins living in Longford, but I didn’t know any of their names…

Headlines (Not the Drake Song)

I have been in Dublin for three weeks now and it honestly feels like the time is flying by. It feels like it was just a few days ago that I arrived here, and I am feel a lot more comfortable in my surroundings now that I have established a steady routine of work during…

Outside of Dublin

I have experienced a little bit of unclear instructions and ambiguity in the workplace. I have been given a few tasks where I was not sure what was being asked of me and I felt awkward asking for instructions. In these situations I usually first try to figure it out myself, then if I can…

Diaries of a Foodie

This past week was mainly more of walking around the city and lots of food and music. The highlights for the week were traditional Irish music, a local farmer’s market, afternoon tea, and starting new classes at the Dublin Business School. One thing I have always loved and will continue to love is live music….

Another Great Week in Dublin

Already three weeks into this internship and abroad experience. With all the working, learning, and exploring I have been doing these past few weeks, maybe it is not so surprising that times flying by! I’ve gotten a few more chances to continue to explore Dublin, take in the gorgeous views, and try some delicious foods….
