Hello, world. I’m MacDara Conroy, and this is my blog.

Friday Five #8


1. What makes you homesick?

Just being away. It takes me a little while to adjust to a new place, even if I’m just there for a few days. But I get used to it. I’ve never been really homesick. Yet.

2. Where is “home” for you? Is it where you are living now, or somewhere else (ie: Mom & Dad’s house, particular state/city)?

Home is right here, in Dublin. (That’s in Ireland, by the way.)

3. What makes it home for you? People? Things?

I dunno. I guess because I grew up here, and I haven’t lived anywhere else. I could make a list longer than Santa’s of things I dislike about living here, but I still feel at home here. Dublin fits me like a glove.

4. Where is the furthest you’ve been from home, miles-wise?

500 miles – the distance between here and Paris, or here and Brussels. That’s as far as I’ve been yet. Next Thursday, however, the new record will be 3,269 miles, ’cause I’m going to Toronto for six days. I’m really getting excited about that now.

5. What are your plans for this weekend?

I have an essay to finish, and I have to go out to campus tomorrow to do some photocopying. And I have to sort out what notes I’m bringing with me to Canada. That’s about it really.
