13 February – 17 February
Happy Valentines Day! ❤︎
I got a surprise card from my Nana today! It’s always nice receiving unexpected mail and know someone is thinking about you. Margaret received flowers and since we don’t own a vase we split the bouquet into various wine bottles.
I spent the part of the night at this bar called Xico with friends. It’s a Mexican style party cavern with pretty good margaritas. Their food menu looks really delicious to add to it but since we had already eaten the 5 of us splurged on a chips/salsa/guac/queso platter. You bet I’ve missed chips and salsa.
Wednesday was gorgeous here. Campus was sunny and everyone was outside enjoying the weather. I spent the morning editing photos and an hour enjoying the lake before going into lab. It was really nice to just sit and unwind in the warm weather and listen to the bustling sounds of students on campus. I think all of us need to take time to enjoy everyday life and reflect on thoughts and ideas.
I’ve heard the midwest is experiencing some strangely warm weather for February. I guess i’m missing out because it’s warmer at home and everyone is throwing darties – college slang for day parties. It’s always one of the best parts about Madison in the spring. Which reminds me how excited I am to be back to soak up the sun at the Terrace this summer.
For now i’m beyond satisfied with my life in Dublin and working on staying as present as I can in everything I do. Cheers to another week!
