I moved to Ireland in the middle of the Covid pandemic

Thought it was time for a bit of an update…

So of all the crazy things to do in the middle of a global pandemic, moving across the Atlantic seems like the logical thing to do…right??

Well, that’s what I’ve done. In September, I moved to Galway, Ireland to start graduate studies in the National University of Ireland, Galway on a full scholarship from the Government of Ireland.

After the mandatory two-week quarantine, I was just settling in to a new apartment, new life, and new educational program when it was announced that Ireland was going on a strict Covid lockdown again. Things had been looking up when I first got here so I was hopeful that life would be able to retain some kind of normalcy, boy was I wrong.

At least I am safe, healthy, and have plenty of books to read!

Luckily, I have still been able to get out and do a bit of exploring so I’ll try and work and getting some posts up soon. Although, I basically don’t leave my apartment, I still have loads of work to do being a full-time grad student.

Here’s a photo of me from the top of Croagh Patrick, one of the few things I was able to do before lockdown!
