Chris and Michele were great hosts in Galway, and James (Diana’s classmate) welcomed us into his home. I appreciated all of that, but no offense, Jay-Z in Dublin at the O2 might top last weekend. I was a little under the weather and lost a little focus in Galway, but I’m fully recovered and have some business to handle in Dublin before I have a blast at the concert.
Don’t get me wrong though, I loved the atmosphere in Galway. The live art you see in the street, which included singing, poem writing, and unicycling, was a fresh breath of air for me. I was probably the biggest tourist on Shop Street, interacting with the locals and getting a self-portrait drawn. Galway was relaxing and the people were genuinely nice, as they are in most parts throughout Ireland. It wasn’t too fast either, it was just right.
I know Dublin will be even more exciting and this concert will be packed! One of my teammates, Aisling, is going too. Me and Diana will be sitting a little higher though because we just got the tickets; might even be what I call the nosebleed seats. Guess we will invest in binoculars and tissues if needed, but when you are with good people, you can have a great time doing absolutely anything!
Also, unlike my fellow victory scholar Brittney, I couldn’t see Beyonce so I’m settling for her husband. Like I said earlier, before I went off on a tangent, I have business to take care of in Dublin on Saturday. We have an away game against DCU and I’m looking forward to that game because it’s a rival. They are one of the top teams in the league. Basketball may be a little different over here, but my teammates are still very competitive. I know how bad they want to win, we had our best practice tonight, and I’m looking forward to contributing to that win and then winning with Jay-Z at the concert. **Drops mic and walks away**
