I wonder what will become of me in Turku? I will have very few hours of lectures there, so I need to find a way to pass the time. I will try and work in an Irish bar, as there are a few there and I could do with money. The plan is to have all my work and study done in good time, and then I can afford to see what the country has to offer.
I don't really want to leave Ireland and all my friends and family, but it must be done. I'll only be taking my laptop, a few games, a book or three and clothes for four months of Finland. When I come back in Christmas, that's when I'll start worrying about Ireland! I'll get more clothes then and hopefully see a few people.
