Today I have felt much better and had a full day of classes learning about the swine industry in Ireland and how different it is compared to the US, all about artificial insemination in different species, and economic strategies in different companies throughout Europe. I find it so intriguing to learn about all the same things I would about my home, but here in a different country. There are many differences I have noted, and it is keeping me interested in wanting to learn more. I begin my Ireland studies course tomorrow and am very excited about that! I am becoming even more appreciative of this diverse world we live in, it's impossible not to learn something new every day you spend in a different place!
Ended my day with dinner at Jamie Oliver's restaurant (Jamie's Kitchen) in Dundrum (a small town near UCD). Conner, Morgan, Jena and I made a trip there to enjoy good company over a nice meal. It's times like this that can turn a day around, so it's always important to appreciate the time you can share with wonderful people.
