My life in pictures ⭐️

The super lazy period after my exams and before my J1. Basically just food & selfies. Most of my time was spent hibernating after exam exhaustion or filling out a mountain of forms. 

Finally found the perfume that I 'needed' for my exams AFTER my exams had ended. I wear this perfume to every exam I have done since my junior cert, so of course I freaked when I had none for my final college exams ( I just used the body lotion instead). I was shocked how many exam 'rituals' I had. Talk about parro. 

I went for a cute post exam trip to Galway with my mum, which mainly consisted of shopping food and wine. 

We had lunch in a cute sea side cafe. I had avocado , eggs and toast. 

We stayed at the House Hotel. Which was heavily decorated with cats & hot pink. We are there - the food was super good. I had the fish platter (  I'm pescetarian ) which had squid which is the main reason I ordered it. 

We got breakfast in bed - this is the veggie breakfast. 

Galway is so cute and laid back compared to Dublin. 

I changed the dip dye in my hair to blue on this trip. 

The rest of my post exam time in Mullingar consisted of relaxing , getting tonnes of paper work filled out and preparing for my J1. 

Carry on luggage mini haul. 

Pineapple bag ( penny's €10). obsessed. 

Mini H&M haul. 

I baked for my sister who was studying for the LC. 

I went for lunch with my parents in Donnybrook after an interview and before  I left for American .

The End of an Era

The End of an Era. 
I have completed my time at Trinity.

I have recently just finished my final year exams and moved out of my on campus accommodation.

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us..."

The last four years have been such an incredible journey. It's kind of surreal to be finished college - and as sad as I am, I plan on just embracing the change and opportunities to come.

I was so lucky to spend my last semester living on campus, in house 33 ( New Square)
It's probably the best address I will ever have! 

Studying for exams heavily involved moaning about it on snapchat....

and of course well 'deserved' (?) study rewards.....

Over the last four years I have fallen in love with the city of Dublin. 

Will I survive without 'fast food' sushi on returning to the country side, albeit for a short short amount of time?? Kokoro became a study season fave!!

Dublin is such an amazing city, with such personality.  I am forever hearing people my age complain about Ireland - thinking their lives will suddenly become amazing when they leave. I think its important to make the most of where you are and explore the city you are in. Of course I am eager to travel more and see the world. Maybe I have rose tinted glasses on but I really think Dublin is just as beautiful as any city. All cities have their flaws....

(More kokoro, can you say obsessed?)

I will do a few more posts about my last few weeks in College - although not hella interesting as I was studying/ trying to study.... 

Then its on to the next chapter in my life. 
(Nervous, but excited. )
