Though my posts might get a bit boring during the school week, I will try my best to keep it interesting. I am very much looking forward to Saturday - I will be traveling to County Wicklow with the International Students Society for a day trip. For anyone who has seen it, Wicklow is where the movie P.S. I Love You was filmed. I am thinking of also joining the Hiking Society and the Film Society - which offers free movie viewings at the campus cinema and additionally free popcorn and soda occasionally.
Back at Purdue, I am used to attending classes with other Pre-Vet students and maybe some other majors such as biology, biochemistry, or Agribusiness. In my Equine Nutrition course, I am perhaps one of three students who is not seeking an Equine Studies degree. I am excited to be enrolled in this course because Purdue does not offer any equine-related courses. In my Principles of Dairy Production class, I am again the minority in a class full of young men who will be taking over their family farm one day.

My three roommates are now all present and accounted for! Aoibhin (pronounced EVE-een) is a third year, like myself. She is studying French and Irish, and her program lasts only three years, so she will be graduating after this semester. Darielle is a first year studying science. Gary is also a first year studying Arts, Philosophy, and Geography, and we share the same birthday!
