Spring Time, St. Stephen’s Green

Hannah Vose
April 9, 2014

Hi, all. Trinity Week is upon us and so the beginning of revision as well. The weather has been very, very nice lately though — we’re talking low 60s F and sunny, here, sure it’s a miracle — and on Monday I took a break from studying (yeah, I know, pretty quickly, huh?) went to St. Stephen’s Green to document Dubliners soaking up all the vitamin D that has been denied them for the past five months.

I also took some pictures out the front window of one of the newer Dublin buses (which have larger, less obscured windows) on my way home, so I’ve included some pictures of Rathmines Village, which is about a ten minute walk from where I live.

When not burying her nose in whichever book has most recently been plucked from atop the dangerously tall pile on her desk, she can be found obsessively learning new languages, squinting through her (very stylish, thank you!) bifocals at someone else&#39;s writing in her job as a Writing Fellow, drinking stupid amounts of tea, squinting through her bifocals at her own writing in her job as a scathing self-critic, or dreaming of living somewhere which gets even less sun than Rochester. Born in England but having lived most of her life in Endicott, New York, she has traveled back to the Land of Her People twice and visited Dublin once on the way over. She considered applying to Trinity College as an international student, but was deterred by tuition costs (yikes!) so she&#39;s absolutely 100% thrilled to be living in Dublin and taking classes at Trinity for an entire year (and only about 34% of that is because she might get to take a class on Patrick McCabe -- will it happen? Stay tuned!)</span></p>
