Galway death of ambition curse [GONE WRONG]

Even though this may be the end of the Mitchell program, it’s only the beginning of my new journey. I’m immensely grateful for the opportunity to pursue my passion in Ireland and mold it into my guiding purpose.

August 28th was the day I initially arrived in Dublin. Now I sit here, 296 days later, tasked with reflecting on this journey.

It’s hard to put it into words, so instead I’m just going to show you all.

One picture from each week from the last 42 weeks (with description). Enjoy!

Week 1: So many pictures to choose from during my first week here, so I went with something basic and cliche.

Week 2: Barely a week here and I’m already in the tattoo studio, par for the course I guess

Week 3: NUT HOT!!!
