Home Again

Tuesday, May 8, 2012

Freedom feels so good, even if it is only going to lasts for a few days.  After my family left Dublin I had to get straight into studying.  I wasn't worried about two of my exams but my third was pretty nerve racking.  It will still be a few weeks before I get any grades back but I think I did decently on all of them.  I'm really just ecstatic to have them out of the way.  Saturday, after finishing our last exam, I had some people over my apartment and then we went out for celebratory drinks.  I kept reminding myself that I did not want to fly hungover but my social side got the upper hand.  Waking up at 7am the next morning to begin a day of 10 hours of flying is not something I will ever be repeating.  I'm glad to have made it home in one piece and with all the important documents I needed.

It's great to be home.  I forget how rare the sun is in Dublin until I travel outside of the country and burn as soon as the sun hits my skin.  It was 72 degrees here today while Dublin was 20 degrees cooler.  I feel like I'm catching up on four months lack of vitamin D.  Unfortunately, the forecast tomorrow calls for rain.

It is also pretty unfortunate that, although I just finished my second semester, my third one starts in just a week.  The first few weeks just require me to do 300 pages of reading that  I'll be examined on when I get back to Dublin, but luckily I can prepare for that at home.  I also have a baby shower to prepare for while I'm here.  My sister is expecting a baby in August but since this is the only chance I have to come home before then, we've decided to have it this Saturday.  I'm also planning on swapping rooms in our house so she can have the bigger one but since she painted her room hot pink and lime green it's going to take so work before I'll be willing to sleep in there.
