Happy 2013 all!
Coming home was somewhat bittersweet. I was looking forward to it but arriving back I said goodbye to the (near) absolute freedom I enjoyed in Dublin.
Being on exchange was a surreal experience, and by extension coming home is facing reality once more. The expectations, social norms etc are hitting me harder than ever before. Thank God I have wonderful friends to confide my problems in and great parents who have always been there for me.
I’m sure all of you can empathize with me so here’s wishing you a great year ahead and may you defeat all the challenges that come in your way!
