Got a message from home (Punny with the song aye? ha ha ha) that I should update the blog, well here I am updating you on my pretty un-eventful life here in Dublin. Anyway we have somehow gotten through half of the semester, not by me actually going to lectures but by me missing most of them... I have a constant battle with myself on if I should go or not to a lecture, I have to tell you that not many of my modules this semester are very interesting or thought provoking, they are all pretty dull.
Capitalism & Democracy
Individuals & The State
Sociological Theory Level 2
Sociology of Nations
Do they sound interesting? Nah not really right? I mean there are always interesting aspects of all the modules but for most of the time it is just so dull... I feel like dull is the best word to describe it. However, I think it is the lack of International Relations modules this semester too (I have them all next semester) and that is my favourite subject area, or what I find most interesting.

Anyways let us talk about something else! ESSAY SEASON IS HERE! You know in between all the fun holidays there is an even more fun holiday, ESSAY SEASON. Which is a period of about 5 weeks that are full of essays, assignments, summaries, reviews etc. oh and that is on top of your normal work load so ... Good luck! It is just about to start here, 2 essays due next week and then from there on out there is an essay a week until the end of the semester. Yay Uni.
Also, say hi to Weiner Vincent who moved into our apartment today, he is going to be my #1 cuddlebuddy here in Ireland, starting today. Yay, yes I am 22. Gosh.
ALSO, on top of all the F U N things going on here in Ireland atm (read: absolutely nothing is going on here, nothing at all, ever, at any point) next week I am having a crazy-reunion-Halloween-get-together-party-weekend in Amsterdam with friends from France, Switzerland AND Finland!!!!! I am too fucking excited, it is going to be epic and very much needed. I have not been in Amsterdam in like 6 years so I am excited to get reacquainted with the city and explore it when I am legal and all of that hehe. On top of that fun I did something nice for myself, I had so many bonus points on my Ebookers account that I got a hotel room really cheap so the first night that I am in Amsterdam (I arrive late on Thursday night, my other friends get there on Friday) I am gonna have a nice lite suite and hotel breakfast all for myself. Very luxurious for a uni student, I know.
So I have that to look forward too and Mommy is coming the weekend after that so time is going to fly by and then before I know it it'll be exam season and then FINLAND yaaaaay!
