Today we did more orientation activities. We learned about Emerson's history at Kasteel Well. The program started in 1984, but didn't break even until around 1990. Our program director, Dulcia Meijers (who is also my Art History prof) is simply an amazing woman. I'm really looking forward to getting to know her, it seems like she has quite a story.
We also learned some Dutch phrases, words, and songs. I'm not sure if I will remember all of them, but I sure know the birthday song well. We have to sing it at every birthday dinner in the cafeteria.
Right now Kristin and I have just finished booking our trip to Ireland. We're flying there February 6th til the 8th. This way we won't have to activate our 2-month eurail passes yet. The whole round trip only cost $72 US dollars, and we're going to share a double hotel room with a few other girls. Staying in Galway on Friday and Dublin on Saturday. Haven't figured out the rest yet, but it's still two weeks away.
On Tuesday we'll learn more about our excursion to Amsterdam, which occurs Friday through Sunday this weekend.
Right now I need some sleep. I haven't been feeling well and I have a 10am class tomorrow, but first I will need breakfast.
