I find myself getting weepy thinking of saying good-bye to all that I have grown to love here, so I must stop thinking. I still have 4 weeks of adventure and new experiences to live and enjoy, so enjoy I will! Attitude really is everything!!! Carpe Diem!
Skill of the week: Learning Irish pronunciations. This seems like a silly skill, but Irish is actually VERY difficult to pronounce. The letters rarely give a clue on how to pronounce anything. For instance, mh says the "v" sound. However, bh, on occasion, can also say the "v" sound. Crazy! The lads and teachers at my school have been grand at helping me in this endeavor.
Up-date on past skills of the week:
Crocheting: 4 hats done... more to come!
Tin Whistle: Had the opportunity to try out my sweet tin-whistle skills with "Flog the Dog" at one of their pub gigs. What a blast! "Guest artist... all the way from America... on the tin-whistle..." They were really great sports.
