After learning that our class was cancelled on Thursday morning, two classmates and I decided to jump on the train to spend the afternoon in Kilkenny. It was such a beautiful day, perfect for admiring the green countryside as it whizzed by. I loved seeing the town through my Irish classmate’s eyes: he told us about where he used to come see “Santy” and showed us the best side allies to use as shortcuts. After laughing at the American cereal on sale for 10 Euro at the specialty sweet shop, we enjoyed some barbeque wings and fried ice-cream at a States-styled lunch spot.
It was an overall wonderful day, made even brighter by the shining sun (not a cloud to hide it!) Even in the simple days like this one, I am reminded of all that I have to be grateful for. Through this Victory Scholarship, I’ve been able to meet such great people and see some incredible places. I am also so grateful for the unwavering support of my friends, who encourage me in the classroom and come to cheer for me on the court.
