Wait! Don't shoot, there's a new post!

Oh's been a week and a half since my last did that happen? I really...don't know... My apologies guys, last week and this week kind of got away from me. I am still in one piece, there just isn't much to say right now.

I've been going to class and doing some of the reading and homework. Starting next week, I have three assignments due, and I'm still trying to figure out the library system. We have to scan the bar codes on our student IDs to get in and out of the library. We have to buy special cards to photocopy things. Printing, requires topping up the money linked to your student ID (yes it's not that different from home, but we don't automatically have anything on out account).

For my castles class, I have to pick a castle to do a report on. The problem, or its not really a problem so much as a snag, is that I have to go visit the castle. That means I have to be able to get there using the public transportation system. After some discussion with my professor, I'll be doing Trim Castle.  There's a bus that takes me right up to the castle, and back to Dublin, which will make it very easy to get to. I'm trying to figure out a field trip with some friends.

The package from home came in last week. I have Grits, and Double Stuffed Golden Oreoes, and Reeces Pieces. I'm all kinds of happy about that :) I finally have some pictures up of people from home so there's pictures to match the cards given to me before I left. I've recently discovered that grilled cheese and tomato sandwiches are very good, and I now remember how much I love apples with peanut butter.

The weather here is really nice. It stays between 60 and 40, being 60 most of the day, and sometimes it'll drop to 48 at night/early morning, but that's really about it. I actually love the weather.

Friday, I leave for Connemara for the trip organized through Rutgers. When I come back, there will hopefully be tons of pictures for you guys to look at. My camera will definitely be coming with me. I've been told it will be cold and wet, and we'll be walking through bogs and such.

I know it's not much, but I can't think of anything else to say. I'm getting ready for bed right now, so my brain has moved passed fried and into the slightly charcoaled area. I hope everyone is doing well. Till next time, remember, you are not allowed to hurt the little shiiii...I mean students ;)
