Balancing Long Distance in Dublin

by Elizabeth

Say that you decided to study abroad not for the Tinder possibilities in another country, but for the educational opportunities alone. In fact, just the opposite: you have a very serious relationship back home. Long-distance relationships aren’t always easy, but don’t despair!

Embrace Your Inner FOMO

by Elizabeth

When I first left to spend four months in Dublin, it seemed like an eternity. We had over one hundred days at the start. One hundred days sounds like an endless amount of time, and simultaneously no time at all.

Celebrating St. Brigid's Day with Pagan Rituals

by Kirsten

February 1st is known as St. Brigid's Day. I had no idea who she was, but I was excited to learn!

Turn outs, St. Brigid is a total baller. 

She outsmarted a king into giving her a huge portion of land, now known in present day as Kildare.

She was known for being extraordinarily kind and beautiful, but she vowed to remain chaste much to the chagrin of her suitors.
