A friend of mine just rang to invite me to a show in Tallaght, which is a big, sprawling suburb on the outskirts of the city where I rarely go, just because I live in the city centre and everything is on my doorstep. But Tallaght is at the foot of the Dublin mountains, and it must be nice to be able to get into your car and be in the countryside in moments.

Anyway, the show is on in a place out there called the Civic Theatre. It looks interesting from the write-up --- but is is something that a non-Irish person will really understand? I guess I'm feeling closer and closer to being Irish myself, so maybe I should go!

Gosh, when you live in the city centre it's easy to forget how big Dublin is. Apparently, they've got everything out in Tallaght -- colleges, hospitals, shopping centre, theatres.

I see now why people tell students they don't know how lucky they are. I thought I was busy last year with my MA, but I had SO MUCH TIME to do things compared to now, when I'm working 3 part-time jobs. Not that I resent the work at all -- I just wish I'd appreciated how much time I had when I did have it!!

But I'm absolutely working as much overtime as possible right now because I want to be free for the Festival of World Cultures in a couple of weeks: Best. Festival. Ever.


Dublin is one of my favorite cities in the world. Waiting for the chance to explore this amazing city, till then i'll have to explore through your blog.


Hi A.K. Where do you live? If you're in Europe, then Dublin's really very close!
