Well, it’s almost 6am and I’ve gotten about 30 minutes of sleep since going to bed at 10pm and turning off the light at around 11pm. Great. The 30 minutes I did get around 2am seemed to have acted as a power nap.
I’m usually not one to have trouble sleeping, but of course, jet lag is another issue. I tried all my usual tricks to no avail. I had slept from midnight to noon yesterday, and felt good the rest of the day (once I got moving), so I thought a solid night’s sleep was in my future. Alas, it was not meant to be.
As they say in Ireland and the UK, I’m going to be knackered tomorrow…er… today.
However, I did have a good afternoon yesterday. I saw where I’m going to live! It’s not the best of rooms, and by far, it’s not the largest of rooms, but I think it’ll be a good fit. It is an answer to my prayers actually – it’s cheap, and it has a built in community. There are also a few Christians in the house that go to the church I plan on going to. The location is really good, too. I won’t be able to walk to work as I was hoping, but there is a bus that’ll be pretty much door to door. Overall, it’s a huge answer to prayer. I move in on Wednesday morning before heading to Killarney to see Beth with some friends!
So yeah, overall, things are going well here in Ireland! I feel at home again. Now if only my body will get used to the time zone, I’ll be all set.
Until next time, xoxo --rvp
