With Christmas break coming to an end, I just got off the bus, and have finally returned to Carlow. I’m having mixed emotions so far, missing my family, but yet extremely excited for the second half of this journey. Christmas break was exactly what I needed to get rested, and recharge my battery for these next few months.
There is so much to look forward to in the next semester, and is making me anxious and excited just thinking about it. Varsitites is the big basketball tournament over in Ireland. All the colleges from around the country meet in Dublin for a weekend, and essentialy have one big AAU tournament. This is going to be a great opportunity to watch, play and experience Irish basketball all in one place. Not to mention all of the Victory scholars are going to be there, and we always have a great time together.
Another part of the second semester that I am looking forward to is how many visitors I will have during the second semester. Not only my family, but several friends will be making the journey across the pond this spring. Words can’t express how excited I am to show everyone my new home, as well as allow them to experience it just as I have.
That’s enough for now, time to go catch up on my sleep!
P.S. To all my friends that are coming over, beware the jetlag is absolutely BRUTAL!
