As I prepare to leave for Ireland this Tuesday I am doing a lot of internal examination. As my nervousness turns to pure excitement I find myself thinking about why I am going on this trip and what I expect from it. The main reason I am going is because I have always wanted to study abroad. I knew if I did not do it I would regret it for the rest of my life. I chose Ireland for the simple reason that I love the country. I cannot wait to experience living and learning in another place.
