You know what they say about Mondays… they’re never great. But, tomorrow is a special Monday, tomorrow is the first day of my postgraduate career and only day of class for the week. Yes, I said only day of class. Nee (Nyasha), Ran (Randyll), and I only have class on Monday. I mean yeah it sounds great but it also means that we have class from 1:15-8:15pm…in the same room. Now, I don’t know if a break is included in there because in the schedule it was just continuous class. I don’t know how my brain is going to handle it. I could barely handle a class that was two hours almost three. But, I am hopeful that it is going to be great not only because I am trying to embrace every moment that this new life is throwing at me but because I am really interested in sport and exercise psychology.


Now I am only talking about Fresher’s week because I definitely feel like I fit into the “Fresher” category. Even though it is not my first year in college, it is my first year abroad in a new school, therefore, I think it is acceptable to partake in the fresher’s activities. Now, I think this is a brilliant idea for any university to have. To refresh people’s minds, the age to drink or attend any club/bar here is 18. Therefore fresher’s week is a week dedicated to socializing and clubbing for a good week or so. If this isn’t the best welcome to university life then I don’t know what is.


Why am I participating in fresher’s week you may ask? Well, one of my goals before stepping foot in Ireland was to enjoy any experience that I am faced with. I think this is an experience to enjoy. Not only am I going to be meeting new people, I’m going to be delving into university culture. It’s not like I haven’t had my time to enjoy undergrad but something about this seems different, good different and I cant wait to partake in this new adventure.


As for golf, there is a possibility to work with a school this Wednesday so that’s exciting. I am excited for this new experience and what will become of it.


Goal for this upcoming week- Survive first day of school as well as fresher’s week.
