We all know how much fun it is to be in new places, meet new people, and begin new adventures. (And if you don’t, I highly recommend finding out!!) BUT, being homesick is a real thing. I’ve always been extremely close with my family at home, and was never apart from them for more than a month or two. I had a busy schedule in college, but they always came to my games if i couldn’t come to them. That’s why my mom and aunt visiting me meant so much to me. After six months of being in Ireland, I hadn’t seen the people who I was used to seeing all of the time.
I enjoyed becoming a tourist again with my mom and aunt. We toured the Guinness Storehouse, bought Ireland scarves to cheer on the rugby match against Wales, and got to show them all around Dublin. They even got to come to a game and meet all of my teammates. They kept telling me that I was so lucky to have met such great people here, and I know they are right about that. I’m so lucky that they got to experience some of my life here and be surrounded by all of the people I am.
