The Victory Family

September 1st, 2015 | Uncategorized

Coming to Ireland, I would have to say I was most excited for meeting new people and building new relationships. I just kind of thought more so with Irish people, whether it be teammates, students, kids, or coaches. I had not given much thought to the two weeks I was going to spend with the group of other Victory Scholars and of course, the SCL staff, a group that I hadn’t realized would become like family (I’m being corny I know). But in all honesty, the past two weeks getting to know this group of “lads” were some of the best memories I’ve had. I have never felt so welcomed by everyone, and I mean genuinely welcomed. From the long van rides with Aimee driving, an experience within itself, to our daily lunches at Cosh Cafe, there was never a shortage of bonding time. Although I’m sooooooo pumped to go to Trinity and be in Dublin, it was really sad parting with some of these friends. I got used to the noise of always being around each other, I loved being around other tall people all the time, and I finally got used to Aimee’s driving….just kidding I’ll never get used to that. But it’s on to making more friends I guess! (I don’t think I ever had so many before?!) No worries though, I won’t be forgetting #TheVictoryFamily anytime soon.
