It's taken me way longer than I would like to admit to complete this post and finish my blog. I've been back home for a while now. And although I'm back into the swing of things here, I know I left a part of myself in Ireland. Post three months... Continue reading

I've been counting down the minutes. But lately, I've been recollecting on the moments and memories this experience has given me. In all honesty, I'm scared to go home because that means this is really over. This experience will be another finished book I will place onto a shelf to... Continue reading

It's been a while since my last blog post. And in these past couple of weeks a lot has happened. So, why don't we just chat and catch up? Grab a cup of tea or coffee and get comfy because this is going to be a long post (probably)... I'm... Continue reading

On Friday, the town's Christmas lights were turned on. Now they had been put about about a week or two beforehand but they hadn't been turned on until last Friday, and it was one of those magical moments when everyone's face is shining with smiles of holiday cheer, including mine....

Happy three months to me! Three months in Ireland and it's gone by too quickly. My host mom keeps saying that these next two months are going to fly by. This last month passed in the blink of an eye. We are having a rare sunny day in Ireland and... Continue reading
Last week was my halfway point. I can barely believe that myself, neither can my host family. I keep looking back through my Instagram profile and seeing all the pictures I have posted from my time here and it's crazy that the first photo I have from Ireland was 11... Continue reading

How is midterm break almost over? This week has gone by so quickly! Monday I'm back off to school for 7 more weeks until Christmas break. Today marks my 10th week here in Ireland which means I am almost halfway through my study abroad experience. When studying abroad, being on... Continue reading

Every now and then, I catch myself in moments of complete happiness and overwhelming joy. Now that's not to say that every other moment I'm terribly sad. The majority of other times I am content with everything going on. And yes, there are still the awful moments of homesickness but... Continue reading

Okay, okay. I'm sorry I've been neglecting my blog yet again. I've just been so busy and time seems to fly by. Well, one more week until midterm break in which I'm hoping to accomplish a lot of my tourist goals and go on some day trips all over Ireland... Continue reading

My host sister loves horses. My host family owns a plot of land on which they have two donkeys and a horse named May. About four days ago, we were having a conversation about our favorite movies and my host sister said that 'Spirit' was one of her favorites. It's... Continue reading
One more day of school until the weekend! Honestly, school is amazingly awful. It's a never ending love hate relationship. Like I've said before, school starts at ten 'till nine (here in Ireland, no one says 8:50, it's like this for every minute of every single day and oh yes... Continue reading
Well, it has officially been one month (and two days) since I arrived here. You know when people ask you on your birthday if you feel older and in all honestly you don't? It's just another day. Well that's kind of how I feel. I've been here a month but... Continue reading
It's been a week since my last blog post. This Saturday marks my first month here in Ireland. One month! I find that ridiculous! When my host mom told me this I was shocked. How could a month have already gone by? My host brother was saying that it probably... Continue reading

A week ago, I was on a day trip to Galway with some of the other exchange students. As we were walking through the city, there was a guitarist playing Wagon Wheel, if you don't know that song, go listen to it! For me, hearing it brought up a lot... Continue reading
Nem0: First day of school! First day of school Get up! Get up! Marlin: No, I don't want to get up... Five more minutes. This is a little quote from one of my all time favorite movies Finding Nemo. I found it fitting since I had my first day of... Continue reading

Today was another day trip in the Doyle + Boyle household. We went to Dromoland Castle which is about half an hour from Ennis. Let me just say, this place was amazing. Honestly the best day trip yet. Mom, I know you're reading this blog post, just a heads up,... Continue reading
Well, this has been an eventful past five days. Basically, I've had some major highs, and some major lows. Transitioning is hard. Change is hard. Especially for me, someone who's never been away from home for more than a week. If anyone is considering studying abroad, here's what I recommend,... Continue reading
Woah, this is real? I'm actually in Ireland? When did this happen? Honestly, I'm still shocked, I think I will be shocked for a while. This is all so surreal. I was completely calm all the way from Boston to Shannon, and now my head is all over the place.... Continue reading
