So I haven’t been here a full week yet, but I got here on Wednesday so it’s been 4 days. I love it so much! They keep telling us this is the “honeymoon stage”, and soon the homesickness will set in but, I don’t know about that. I know that at some point I will get homesick, but I don’t think it’ll be for awhile. I have already made friends and they are great. Luckily, I came here with Michelle so I already had her, but her housemates and their friends are super nice and hung-out with us already. They are going to give a tour and take us shopping and everything, since they have cars, and live here, so they actually know where they are going. I am trying to get switched into her building, because mine is so far from everything and she has an open room. Fingers crossed that it will all work out.
Although everything is amazing now, my flight was hell. My original flight from Buffalo was delayed and I was told I was going to miss my flight to Ireland. So I really panicked. There was a lot of running and some lost baggage, but in the end I made the flight, because one really sweet flight attend held it for me. The flight itself wasn’t bad, not nearly as long as I thought it was going to be.
Anyways, classes start on Monday and it’s”freshers week” so there are events going on all week. I’m looking forward to this week a lot.
Honestly, I think I am going to really enjoy my time in Ireland!
