In this week's post, Jessica arrives home for the holidays and looks back on her fall semester in Dublin. While goodbyes were aplenty, she shares how she and her friends captured the essence of the city that they've called home for the last few months by doing their favorite activities and traversing their usual spaces one last time.
The last week consisted of many goodbyes. I completed all my exams by Tuesday and on Thursday, and we had one last Christmas dinner with our CAPA program and the advisors at a restaurant right around the corner from Griffith College’s campus. I said one last thank you to the whole group, our advisors, and wished everyone good luck in their futures. It was crazy that these past few months flew by.
Friday was my last day at my internship and I said goodbye to my supervisor. Afterwards, a few of my friends went out for dinner for the last time at Nando’s. If you don’t know, Nando’s is famous for its Portuguese-style chicken dishes with loads of sauces to choose from. It became a thing for us to go out to Nando’s together a lot, so we had to do it for our last night together in Dublin.
