It’s been a year ever since I have decided and prepared my means to move to Ireland. It’s been a year ever since I got a place to stay in for three months, without knowing where I’m going, and what awaits me. All I have seen and learned about Ireland was from the movies and TV shows, and boy was it a surprise to learn that this place is not even close to what it’s being portrayed as. Well, maybe it’s a little bit close. People do quite enjoy their alchohol and parties, that’s for sure.
But let’s get back on track and say a little bit about what I’ve been through. As expected, the year had it’s ups and downs. To start off I’ll say that when I first moved in, I moved in with the most amazing guys I could have ever met. Both of them are scientists, so conversations were always quite entertaining and educational. Though as we all know, all great things must come to an end evantually. And so did my stay with the two of them. After three months I had to move into a new place. It took me a while to find one – finding a room in Cork is a really challenging thing to do – but I managed. I moved into a house with two other couples and two girls. It was a really crouded place at the least. The room was small, and there was one kitchen and one bathroom, but the housemates were nice. Not as interesting as Eric and Rory (and hence I don’t even remember their names) but I lived through it. More importantly tho, I’ve met a girl. I actually met her a very long time ago, but it took nearly five months for us to even meet up. But once we did, we hit it off pretty fast. And now, few months later, we are living together and are really, really happy. We’re a great match. She’s a beautiful mulat girl from America. She also happens to be a writer, and that’s what actually got me rather interested in her in the first place. We also got a hamster! His name is Lord Pipsqueak. I’ll talk about him some other time.
Anyway, on the other note jobs have had their ups and downs. I got a job in a pawn store, but that only lasted a few months. After that I got hired in Spar ( that’s a local store ) but whilst working there I got offered a position as a CNC Engineer in a different company – and that’s what I’m doing right now.
For now that’s where I’m going to end the post. Hopefully I’ll be writing more in the nearby future. Until then, thank you very much for stopping by, and I hope you’ve had a wonderful year too!
