Home Away From Home

December 7th, 2015 | Uncategorized

Christmas reminds me of tradition, warm feelings, and being around people you care about.  Thanks to my great friends from school and basketball, I was able to feel right at home and check all of these off my Christmas list.


Christmas tradition to me is listening to Christmas music, making tons of food and desserts, and decorating the house and tree.  Lil, Ciara, Kiran, Ian, and I made a traditional Irish Christmas dinner while blasting music and decorating their house and tree.

Then we sat around laughing and listening to Kiran on his new guitar, an early Christmas present to himself. Ciara and I also made homemade churros, which were risky but came out much better than expected.


Lastly, is being around people that you care about.  These 4 people have made my time in Ireland so much easier and enjoyable. We all love a good laugh, great food, and relaxing after a long week of school and basketball. I can’t thank them enough for making me feel at home although I’m 5,000 miles away.
