The End of an Era

I remember when I first arrived in Dublin. It was similar to home, yet different. Now I can undoubtedly say it is a home away from home, and I have every intention of returning. Looking back it is one of the best decisions I have ever made, and I would advise anybody considering a year abroad to go for it. It’s a whole new experience, no matter where you go.

Returning home has made me realise just how fast this year has gone, I already miss the city, the university and the company! I would say the best part of the whole experience has been meeting people the people I met, literally from all across the globe. It’s crazy how this one common thing- studying away from your home country- can bring two people from opposite sides of the world together!

The sole decision of taking up this year abroad has lead me to plan a very exciting summer, a lot of which will be spent travelling. It’s like the domino effect. One great decision can affect your whole life. Do it- you will not regret it.

That’s all from me…

I wish you all the best. Good luck!

My first day had me miss the first half of a lecture as I circled round and round the hallways- and walked past the room I should have been sat in countless times! One word of advice… just ask someone! That goes for pretty much anything  in life, if you don’t know, be willing to ask around. #lifeadvice Continue reading
