Moved in!

September 21st, 2014 | Uncategorized

                  Last week we moved onto the beautiful Trinity campus in the Botany Bay apartments! Lucky for Christine and I, living on campus seems to be an automatic “in” to making friends because not many live on or close to campus! Therefore, but unfortunately, we will have some incentive to keep it generally clean as well as invest in an air mattress!

                  Right outside our kitchen windows are a small soccer field connected to two grass tennis courts. My dad loves to play tennis and I’d imagine if he lived here he would play every day and at every opportunity he got! The weather has been really nice and whether its morning or night, there are always people playing on the courts.

                  Over the course of the week we were introduced to a few of the Men’s and Women’s Basketball players and had a lot of fun playing in a 3 on 3 tournament with some of them! Last week was called “freshers week” which is a week for our inductions to masters courses, and for the freshman (“freshers”) to go through their week of orientation as well.  There were tents set up all around the quad area of campus that advertised clubs and societies for sign up. I was ecstatic when I discovered the Photography club, (as I jumped all over Christine after my official sign up – also due to a great amount of coffee intake I previously had) where they offer darkroom and digital work, as well as a trip to Berlin if our schedules permit! They also gave me three chocolate bars for signing up…confirming this day couldn’t get any better.

                  From Gaelic football to yoga, academic, debate and cultural clubs, it was impressive at the variety of societies available to all students.  It’s exciting to be a part of different groups and activities, which was difficult to do in undergrad because of a busy basketball basketball and academic schedule. Being a part of the AIESIC society as well as Photography, I aspire to participate and learn as much as possible!
