Hi again!! It’s been about half of the semester so far, and time is flying by! We just had midterms this week, which felt very different than midterms at DU. All of my classes, except one, were in person essays and the other was a five minute speaking assessment with the professor. However, I am super excited to go on spring break next week! I will be traveling up to Paris, so I will definitely miss the sunshine all the time, but am looking forward to all the fun touristy attractions!
I was also fortunate enough to travel to Ireland last weekend to surprise my grandma who was taking a trip there! It was so exciting to see her reaction and to be with family again. While I do love it here, obviously there are moments of homesickness, and seeing my family made me feel more grounded and secure. Ireland was amazing and I am so thankful for that opportunity!
