We Are Family
I can’t even comprehend that I’ve only been here for 12 days! I feel like I have known all of the scholars and everyone for years and we literally just met each other. But we’ve all bonded so much over this time. It must have something to do with being surrounded by people with the same goals who are all here for the same purpose. We laughed, cried, ate our weights in french fries, pizza and pinballs, saw some amazing sights and had lots of good craic (the Irish version of fun).
A few years ago I would have never been able to come out of my comfort zone and become friends with these guys. I wouldn’t have been able to make an idiot out of myself while dancing in front of kids or drink tea with everyone and anyone in Ireland. I’m enjoying coming out of my shell and getting to know new people.
SCL training is now over and we’re all split up! It’s sad but I’m excited to start to settle in and get into a normal routine here in Dublin… We shall see how it goes!!
