This semester is FLYING by at warp speed, but I was finally able to take a few days from class/studying/training/coaching/working out/making food [repeat] to enjoy Mai-Thy’s birthday, a Meteors win and Paddy’s Day in DUBLIN!
Paddy’s Day was one for the books, Dublin city centre was packed with tourists (as most of the locals get the heck out of town!) but it was a magical atmosphere. Everything was green, most people were jolly and it was a good time with good friends. Definitely one of those “once in a lifetime” experiences I will be talking about for Paddy’s Days to come! Oh and of course I had the pleasure of seeing and catching up with Christine, one of my high school friends from Needham J
The highlight of my weekend though was my lazy Sunday with Susan and Fiona! As all good things do, it started with a Snapchat conversation around what to eat for lunch. The entire day turned into an adventure including driving to Wicklow, tea at the Powerscourt Hotel and then dinner with her high school teammates (including Fiona!). Long story short, we ate tons of good food, told stories for hours and then watched random things on the TV. It was literally like I was sitting at the table with Christine, Katherine and Maddie, picking up right where we left off from high school.
Sports are great—obviously that is the moral of this year. But with each new experience, the impact that sports have had on my life becomes clearer. Great friendships, hours laughing, learning not to sweat the small things, the list just goes on and on.
