It’s been almost 5 months in Ireland...

Hi and welcome back to my blog!

The time is passing by way too fast and it’s been almost 5 months in Ireland.

My first term had ended and I flew back home for the Christmas break to spend some time with my family and friends in Germany. It was nice to see everyone again even if it was only for a couple of days. At the beginning of January, I had to say goodbye again to everything and everyone in Germany. I was worried that it would be hard to say goodbye again but in the end, I have to say that it was quite easy for me, because this time I knew what and who was waiting for me in Ireland and I was looking forward to seeing my Irish friends and my host family again.

Back in Ireland, I was warmly welcomed by my host family. I arrived on the evening of the 6th of January so I didn’t have much time before I had to go to school again… I went back to school the next morning! Since I was very exhausted that day, not much happened. We only ate dinner and I unpacked my suitcase before I went to bed.

At school everything went back to normal quickly, we even had exams very soon after our return to school. Our school has had some really important matches in the last few weeks, which we were often allowed to go to and watch. It was very fun!

I quickly got back into my everyday life and met up with my friends at the weekends that followed. Mostly, we went into town to have lunch or do some activities like bowling and the cinema. One of my friends and I also go regularly to the Gym but this is mostly during the week after school.

Thanks for reading my blog. See you next month,
