Tourneys, Thanksgivings, Lashes and Tashes

Thursday, December 1, 2011

Well I've let another large amount of time go by between posts.  I think the last time I posted I was complaining about the project/presentation combo that I was working on.  After those were done there was an accounting project that needed to get completed so I will use that as my excuse for continuing in my trend of not posting!  I'm not at all happy with my grade for the finance project however today was my last day of classes for the semester so I'm trying to just enjoy that instead of dwelling.

Since my last post I've registered myself with the government so I am officially here legally... only a couple of months late.  I also had a second frisbee tournament.  This was women's indoor intervarsities to which UCD sent two teams, one placing 3rd and the other (mine) placing 5th out of 13 teams! 

Last week was the week of many Thanksgivings.  My friend Melissa, who is from Boston but I met over here, invited me to a dinner she was having on the actual day of Thanksgiving.  It was a delicious dinner and great company and I was very happy to be invited.  On Saturday a few girls in my program decided that they were going to host a Thanksgiving dinner.  Again, another amazing meal!  Sunday afternoon I met up with a few of the Irish that were Boston this past year for another "Thanksgiving" meal though we had it at a Mexican/Italian restaurant.  I've never celebrated Thanksgiving with a burrito before this year but there are definitely worse ways to do it I guess!

Last night was the Smurfit Lashes and Tashes party at Lillie's Bordello.  I haven't had a night out in a while and it was so much fun.  Lots of fun eyelashes and mustaches and of course a lot of dancing!

I've really just been using most of this past week to relax since studying time is coming very quickly.  While at home we would have one day between the end of classes and the start of finals, here we have a full week.  It's going to be hard for me to focus but I should really take advantage of that time to get some studying done.  That, of course, isn't going to start tonight so I'm going to continue the trend I've had going for the past few days and watch a nice Christmas movie before bed.  Oh!  We've also finally gotten our couch and gotten a small Christmas tree!
