alright. lets see. its been a while since i've written anything worth reading on here...let me think if i can write anything good...hm.

em. so i am halfway thru my last week of work here in ireland. its pretty weird. it has been a fast 4 months. but at the same time, it seems like forever ago when i left home and landed in dublin having no idea what anything was.

last week when i came back from the weekend home, i was thinking about how different it was flying from the States to Dublin that time as opposed to the last time I had done it. the first time i did it (4 months ago) i was nervous and hadnt the slightest idea what i was doing or where i should go in the airport and wotnot. this time thru i was real chill and relaxed - not a care in the world. i knew exactly what to do in immigration, i knew exactly where to go in the airport (mainly how to get home) - i knew WHERE home was. the busride thru the city - i knew what part of the city i was in, WHEN i was in the actual city...i know this is boring to read, but it was so weird to me when i compared. the first time i was so bewildered and i felt like a little kid on his first day to a new school i guess. welp. anyways, it was quite different the 2nd time - not to mention the fact that i knew what my bed was like before getting in it that night.

anyways. what else? meh, it was really good to go back home for a weekend. i got to spend alot of time with my family and friends, more so my family. i spanked jim john and mikey in bocce. so that was good. i was awake thru the whole movie that i watched with jim, a first i think. but most importantly, i got good ol fashioned chicken wings. mmmmmmm mm. they dont make em the same over here in ireland. they are dry here. not a fan.

welp, thats all i can think of for now.

here are 60 pictures of Saint Peter's Basillica and the view thereof...

Well, lets see. How's everybody doing today? Good? Good.

lets see, i know this is old, but lemme give you a little peek into my weekend in italy 10 days ago...

I arrived butt-early on wednesday, sry, left butt-early. but it was okay because i was able to give my neck bone structural problems on the plane ride there...i mean, i was able to get some sleep on the plane ride there...i think the toughest part about when i got to italy was knowing who did and who didnt speak english, becuase i alway got it wrong..."hi, i need 1 ticket to rome please?" - "preggo?" or...

"uh....un...biglayto a roma?" - "yes, here you go, to termini is what you want correct?" it was a bit embaressing for myself to be honest.

anyways, i got to rome fine, went to my hostel, in the smelly part of town, got settled, the lady running the hostel spoke only italian, but we figured it out...

started walking around the city, saw the 3 things i wanted to see, then kept walking, then REALLY saw the 3 things i wanted to see. everything in Rome is old so i thought that anything old was the pantheon...it wasnt...it was something else of random importance...haha. anyways, i KNOW that i saw the spanish steps, the pantheon, the memorial to the unknown soldier, the coloseum, trevi fountain, and the four rivers fountain, so that was real sweet. i also ate good pizza and gelato (also sweet - PUN).



i was a bit dehydrated, so the view from the spanish steps was a bit blury...

em, so i just spent my whole day walking around the city and taking in the sights, it is a pretty cool city, confusing yes, dirty, somewhat, filled with italians, fairly. but its a decent city none the less.

anyways, i went back to the hostel after a very long day and just kinda chilled, talked with a few of the other people staying in the hostel, and went to sleep, oh yea, got a shower too, hot water and all...it was great...welp, more later...



in other news, i had a great weekend, my cousin adam came saturday night, so we were able to chill and talk for a while, then the next morning his mother Rose and brother Byron came so i spent the day with them. very nice, its good to see family, and they are good people too, so that was a double nice. i then went to the Jameson Distillary with them, hadnt done that before so it was real cool to go there...had dinner with some friends from Sweeden and France and then went home...and yesterday was normal day of work...

anyawys, back to work, there is a small chance ill be flying to Toronto tomorrow so keep ur fingers crossed for me and say a little prayer. i think i'd be able to go to the rochester for the weekend if i do go...

anyways, ill keep you updated.


go browns...

go john's soccer team and john's headball-goal.

cheers
