Hakuna Matata

After 4 weeks, it had to be done. Laundry. I’ve done laundry once before but I have been dreading doing it again because it costs 6.50 euro to do one load of laundry. Six fifty euro is equal to ten dolla which means I could do 6 loads of laundry at home compared to here. That is outrageous if you ask me. Plus the washers and dryers are so old that I think they were one of the first ever invented. But I have decided that is why a lot of people smell so bad here. Laundry and personal hygiene products are so expensive so people don’t use deodorant, or shower, or do laundry because it cost $20 to do 2 loads. And these are not 2 normal loads of laundry. The washer is tiny. It is half of the size of the average washer back home. Which means the 2 loads laundry that I did would be equal to 1 normal load of laundry at school. Ugh! But now I have clean sheets, towels, and most importantly, underwear! As much as I hated spending that much money, I learned something about myself: I can be easily entertained if people don’t mind listening to Mal and I sing the Lion King (very poorly I might add) while we watched our clothes tumble lol! Instead of forking over that much money, I’m going to kick it old school and hand wash bigger items like my jeans and sweaters. All I got to say is that I will be doing a lot of laundry when I get home:)

About clarson1

I am a student at the University of North Dakota studying Political Science, Public Administration, and International Studies. It's hard to believe, but I am already a senior! Everyone asks me what I want to do with my degree but I am still deciding that myself; maybe grad school or law school, or maybe I'll just stay in Ireland forever. I love to play sports especially tennis, pickleball, and frisbee. Anytime the weather is nice, you will find me outside soaking up some Vitamin D reading a book or chilling with my roomies. When the weather doesn't cooperate, you can find me playing Just Dance on the Wii or baking or watching movies. I am a pretty chill girl but I love to try new things. So, Ireland...here I come!
