I didn't take an apartment right when I got here, but decided to extend my hotel stay shortly to look at more apartments in person. However, I finally made a deposit on one and will be moving my things in tomorrow! (Amidst the paper writing and lectures, of course.) I will be sure to post pictures, though maybe not until I get a chance to decorate a bit. Also, my phone has been working well for the most part. Except when it hasn't. It seems I can receive text messages, though people in America do not receive mine. People in Ireland, on the other hand, do. And usually when I call back to the States I get through just fine, but every now and again I am "unable to connect". I will do my bes to get this straightened out soon, but if it's really important, I suggest you e-mail me. I get all my e-mails.
And of course, I couldn't go more than a week in a new country with new germs without catching some sort of cold. So I am going to go complete tonight's assignment and get plenty of rest before tomorrow and all the moving.....!
