Barcelona

Hopped on a bus and got to see the French country side on a very long journie from Paris to Spain

Got to Barcelona went to an amazing hostel called St. Christophers and would recommend it was less than $10 a night and free wifi and breakfast and a walking tour. I met some amazing people there too, definitely worth it. The first night I walked around and saw all these lights decorating the streets.

I went to park Guell and saw all the beautiful mosaic and whimsical architecture. It felt like living in a Dr. Suess book
  

Went to tapas and had loads of fun drinking wine sangria and eating loads of little amounts of food

Dublin day 3

I am back home in Edinburgh now already missing Ireland.

I started the day by visiting Trinity college explored the campus and found this beautiful sculpture. Reminded me of the bean.img_3418-0

The buildings were so beautiful like a film set.

Went to a historic Irish museum, played with the jubox  

Practiced my printing press skills

Learned about Alfie the amazing mayor that once was. Took a selfie with his wax figure.

Oscar Wilde tribute park right around the corner of his house. (i am reading A Picture of Dorian Grey right now)

Went on a jail tour and learned some history


Jail sell painted with a Madonna   

The jail entrance where there used to be hangings, public execution was a pass time for many civilians.

The original Irish republic document is worth a quarter mill (we should steal the deceleration of independence, was all i could think of.)  

Throw Back Thursday

Okie Dokie first post of 2016, I have been working seriously on myself and it honestly has not been amazingly easy. I was mislead by a simplified list, 15 steps that would be my soul search. I have been distancing from some, growing closer to others, cleaning and sorting and most of all trying to stick to my word.

In the process of cleaning my room (Step 5 organize my life) I found tons of things that I wrote years ago, some had purpose with labels, my old geometry or health ed notebook. but some were completely random scraps and they had the most meaning to me. This week I will be putting up a short blurb that I wrote in 6th grade for a free write assignment. It is nothing extraordinary but I think it is cute and shows a writing process that I had nine years ago.

My Missing Books

Once on an average weekend in September my family went to Bay Head. I took my school work with me but managed to lose it.

I though “Where could it be?” In the messy cluttered house, the car or did I leave it in my locker? I had no idea.

I said “I hope it’s in the car. ” So i decided to look there first. soon my mother brothers and I were whipping things into bags, food , garbage and toss out. Sadly I was not there it was not there. not even hidden under the car seats.

I started to cry, feeling the tears rolling down my face slowly dribbling. all was going blurry. All I could think was i could fail Language Arts.

Later that night we found it on the living room table. I was very happy I was jumping for joy. A free write assignment and I knew exactly what to write about.

So there are scraps of what I wrote all those years ago that are still extremely relevant today. and on the note of TBT I want to put up a video of my brother who helped me in the story. He wraps for hobby and there is referencing me and my job. The song is called milestone by Gently Violent and the link is posted below. I hope you enjoy .

 

Spring Break, so far

This week I have not had classes or work because it is URI’s spring break. I have spent my days sleeping watching netflix and hanging out with local friends. I would have to say this has been a very successful detox from stress. I have not done anywhere near the amount of homework I had wanted to do over the break but I still have tonight. You may be wondering why I didn’t say I have the weekend, I am going on a little road trip to Bethlehem Pennsylvania to visit one of Kyle’s friends at Lehigh University.

Last weekend on Friday I went to the trampoline park with Kyle, Justin D, Ben and Jacob. All of them went to high school together and I had just met Jacob that day at chipotle, Ben I met over a month ago at a party but I didn’t really know them. On Saterday it was a full day of the guys and me who went to a Chinese buffet, the pet store (where I fell in love with a Beta fish that I did not take home), the beach and then back to my room to watch Sharknato 2. (not as good as sharknato but maybe the third one will top the stellar performance of movie one.)

This weekend had to be one of the fastest friendships I have made in a while, I get to spend the road trip time with the same guys (minus JD who is building a house in Arkansis with Courtney Abbie and habitat for humanity) I a so ready, the last bit of packing will be done when my laundry comes out of the dryer, I have almost 5 hours of music offline on a spotify play list, snack food packed and all around eagerly antisipating a wonderful weekend off campus.

(I am going to put all the pictures at the end of this post.)

Yesterday was rather fun and long as days go I had a councling session where I was told I? do not need as much councling so I will only go twice a month instead of every week. I had the RA interview redo and I think it went well, possibly better than the first one so fingers crossed that I get the job. Then I decided it was time for a hair cut so I looked up cheap places to get a hair cut and got on the bus with my back pack filled to entertain me. Thank goodness because I took the wrong bus and went outbound to Providence then looped back to Wakefield where I had wanted to go. It took like two hours when it should have been less than half an hour. But I got to knit a little and read through my geology notes. I got 10.5 inches of hair cut off and feel beyond adorable now with my short spring hair cut. In the waiting room I talked to some very nice people who treated me to lunch at panera then I went on the bus back to school and watched Bridgett Jones Diaries on netflix while making Geo flash cards. It was an all in all good day.

Today I volunteered with GRRL Tec, a Rhode Island program to get highschool girls intrested in STEM careers. I moved tables and walked girls to a seminar on personal finance, then handed out their lunches. I got a free Tshirt and lunch. My breakfast buddy Elizabeth asked if I wanted to go to RISD with her and of course I did so I spent the afternoon looking at art.

Tonight I want to do a forum post for film, fold laundry, finish packing for tomorrow’s road trip, do the online chem homework and the Stats homework that will be due monday and tuesday and need to be done before I travel.

I am so excited to see Kyle, and my mom and leave campus for a few days. I may do a bonus post on Monday if the trip is good and I don’t feel like sleeping forever when I get back to school and have a 7am shift at the dining hall 😦
