So today we had our conferring ceremony. What fun! Ah, I suppose it wasn’t that bad.
Was strange, very American. We even had Marines and special men in suits with earpieces hanging around. The marines did the cutest little dance as they, whats it called, when you bring in the flag? I dunno. Anyways thats what they did, marching in place, feet stamping and guns twirling. We even had the American anthem played, and then the Irish one. There was obviously one child in the audience who had been to many sporting occasions, because as AmhÃ¡n Na bhFiann came to an end they shouted out with a big cheer.
Then there were the speeches. The US Ambassador to Ireland gave one, the HETAC dude gave one, yer wan from the actual American college gave one. All very international.
Plus, meant I got an extra hour in bed this morning, so all in all, a good day.
