November 4th, 2019
Over the past 3 months, I’ve had the opportunity to meet great people and life changing experiences. Over the long Halloween weekend other Victory Scholars came to Dublin for a night to catch up, explore Dublin, and spend time together. Because each of us aren’t from Ireland and don’t have many friends, so it was great being around each other because who we have got to know each other so well in similar situations. The weekend consisted of renting out the an Airbnb, ordering pizza, walking around the city, and eating dinner at Bunsen. The Airbnb was the coolest Airbnb I’ve ever seen because of the agriculture and layout of the house. There was big glass widows on every level of the house, an outside upstairs and downstairs patio, 2 outside jacuzzis, and really soft big queen sized beds.
This weekend also consisted of our first cup game vs Maree. We won that game 74-64 and we are moving on to the next round at the end of November. It was a very special weekend because Ashley’s dad was in town for the game as well. The rest of the weekend was spent with teammates and other victory scholars because of the bank holiday that following Monday, we had lots of time to spend together in the city. We ate dinner at Bunsen which is a famous burger place in Dublin in the Temple Bar District. It was beautiful to see the lights and Christmas Trees already set up in preparation for the month of December and Christmas approaching! We walked around the Temple Bar area walking into gift shops and buying doughnuts and ice cream. It was a great weekend to be around my teammates and other Victory Scholars in Dublin!
