|My panorama of the Cliffs of Moher|
It's been 6 months since I've ben in Ireland and I am really beginning to deal with homesickness for Dublin. I miss walking around busy Henry Street and hanging out at the Porterhouse and getting a pint of Porter Red. I miss having the ability to just take a plane and land in a different country every weekend, and I miss going window shopping in one of my favorite stores, AWear.
My friends are now planning on going next semester and I am speaking at the pre-departure meeting and talking to parents at admission events. This is making it even harder for me. I need to go back!
Don't get me wrong, I love being back home and seeing my friends and family, and I'm glad to be back in Burlington, I just miss Europe and my time there. Going to class everyday amused me so much. on my journey to class I would pass the old city wall, Christ Church, St. Patrick's Cathedral all on my way to class! I also loved that energetic buzz in the morning that everyone has when they are walking to work. The women either ditch their heels for sneakers or speed walk in heels and the men are wearing perfect matching suits and still looking perfect.
I also miss having the people of Metro News hand out the morning paper with abbreviated news. "Maybe you're just meant for the city?" is what my friends say Yes I love big cities, they excite me and are full of hidden gems, but Dublin is something different. the fashion is another thing. I would walk around and get so much inspiration on new outfits that I can add to my wardrobe. In Vermont the styles are more on the laid back side with a lot of skinny jeans and flannels, and baggy sweaters. Dublin had this magic that I am really missing right now.
With these steps, I can at least miss Dublin but not sulk over it. Today I took my yearning to go somewhere by heading downtown and going to a coffee place to do my homework. If anything I need a change of scene.

Sorry for not writing for awhile... I've been so busy with classes and the play that I manage. Thankfully, long video project and play pracices and performances have commenced, and I can now come back to focusing on "What Would Magellan Do?"!
To begin, my other job on campus apart from managing the shows,is to work on in the study abroad office. While working there I have come up with a few video ideas for making the program grow, and to make both students and parents either current of prospective, to look into going abroad! This leads me to some VERY exciting news...
I will be going to Morocco this Spring Break!!!!!!!!!
Yes, that did need ti's own paragraph and many explanation points! I am so excited about it! I've wanted to go to Morocco forever, I honestly want to say since I was 10, because I remember having a picture up on my wall of it. I'm getting to go here because there is a class offered at Champlain which allows students to go to Morroco during spring break and learn about the culture and apply it to their major! What could be better for a girl wanting to go into travel journalism? I am beyond excited, and can not wait till the spring! Now I just need to get through these classes!
