Are you ready to go home?

The closer I get to the end of my time in Dublin the more I get asked by my coworkers, friends, and family if I’m ready to go home? I always find it difficult to answer this question because I don’t have a definite answer. Sure it will be nice to see all of my…

Week 2 – Getting Acclimated
