Study Abroad Blog

Hello everyone! I have decided that since some people don't have Facebook (*cough* Ashley *cough*) that creating a blog will be the easiest way to keep in touch with everybody. I will leave for Galway, Ireland, on January 3rd - that's 2 weeks and 2 days from now!!! I'll be studying history at the National University of Ireland, Galway until May 23rd. On May 25th, my parents will be bringing a group over for a tour of Ireland that will last 12 days! (If anyone is interested in coming on this trip, let me know, and I will have my mom send you some information!)
I am so excited to go to Ireland! I went with Baker's band, choir, and orchestra last January for a 2 week tour of Ireland and England. I had been planning on studying in London, but I fell in love with Ireland! Galway's also a better fit for me than London because it's not as big and I don't think I would freak out as much over moving to Galway for almost five months. I'm coming up with quite the 'to do' list for before I leave - so much to do so little time!


  1. Boooo facebook! :-) I'm so glad you have a blog. I have been wondering how good we're going to be at keeping in touch! Call me again before you leave. Can't wait to see you in Ireland!!!!! Love you!

  2. YAY! I'm so glad you have a blog, although I do have Facebook too!! :) I'm so excited for you! Ireland's a place I've ALWAYS wanted to visit. That is on Todd's and my list for "someday". Wish we could afford to go on the tour with all of you! Have a very Merry Christmas and good luck getting ready to go! The date will be here before you know it! :)

  3. hope you can add lots of picture of yourself and where all you go.
    you are our tour guide so show and tell all.
    Have a very Merry Christmas and Happy Next Year.

  4. I know you'll have a great time and I will bet that you have a "wee" Irish accent by the time you get back.
    Drink a Guinness for me.
