Hi there! Doesn’t it feel like I just wrote one of these? This week FLEW by!

After a lovely time with my parents, I was joined almost immediately after returning home from Limerick by a steady flow of friends from my sorority! It was so great to see some familiar faces and I was thrilled that they all loved Ireland. But I mean… who wouldn’t?

Friday we celebrated Unofficial (which, if you live under a rock and are unaware, is a U of I tradition that celebrates St. Patrick’s day). I had a lot of fun but missed U of I and my friends a TON that day! So much FOMO. (Fear of missing out… if you still live under a rock.) I’m already SO excited for my last unofficial as a senior- party at the round balcs!

Yeah… this happened.

Saturday all of the girls visiting us (four SigKaps and 2 friends of my housemate Rachel), as well as Rachel, Medha, and myself all went on a day trip to Wicklow County! We spent a lot of time in the Wicklow Mountains and saw the bridge from P.S. I Love You! It was great. The bus driver told us a story of a time when he was on this tour and a guy proposed to his girlfriend… SO CUTE! He either thought we were super obnoxious or hilarious… unclear. Oh and also I wiped out again by just casually sliding down a hill, so that’s where my life is at. That night was Christine’s 21st, so we had a good time celebrating for that!Image

Happy 21st, Christine!

After this weekend, my week was prettyyyy boring. I had three projects due this week so I actually had to buckle down and focus. Still, the amount of work here doesn’t even begin to compare to the amount of work I’d do in a semester at U of I. Senior year might be a bit of a slap in the face.

Tomorrow marks the start of our two week spring break! I am leaving bright and early tomorrow with a group of friends for an 8-day, whirlwind tour of ITALIA! So excited! My alarm is actually set to go off in 6.5 hours, so… maybe I should get packing?

With that, I leave you until next weekend, when I come home for St. Paddy’s before leaving again for Berlin and Belgium. I’m telling you, my life is really hard 😉 Thanks for reading and have a great week!
