After I finished my exams, I went in to meet Conner and he surprised me with Nutella cheesecake, a new Star Wars sweatshirt, and some fuzzy socks to make me feel better after a long few days. He really knows the way to my heart! On Thursday I slept in to try and get a little better, but rest doesn’t seem to be working on this cold! I’ve been spending a lot of time with my Netflix account. Elf, Supernatural, and How to Get Away With Murder were among the shows and movies I’ve invested my sick time in.
Thursday afternoon I was able to meet up with a fellow Indiana native from none other than Bedford, Indiana. My dad’s high school football coach, David Cox (who also played for the Buffalo Bills), has a daughter who lives here in Ireland. Conner and I met Lindsey and her husband, Mike, for lunch at Yamamori Sushi down near the Liffey River. We had an excellent meal and enjoyed getting to know each other while sharing our Purdue experiences and our times in Bedford. She went to BNL and did her undergrad at Purdue before coming to vet school at UCD. She met her husband, who is from Galway, and never left Ireland. They have an awesome story and are the sweetest couple! I can’t wait to keep in touch. (She even mentioned that we should try to get jobs over here, which is definitely something Conner and I would like to look into!)
Last night, Conner and I watched Ratatouille to stay in from the rain before I went to bed early trying to get rid of this cold. I woke up this morning and it is still lingering but the sun is shining for now, and it’s a new day full of opportunities! It’s the Friday of the last weekend of my semester in Ireland and no cold can slow me down! :)
