Documenting the start of my life as a twentysomething

I've got a job!
I have officially (pending the interview) been placed in an internship for the second half of the semester here in Dublin! It's such a relief. The program heads had told us that we wouldn't find out our internships until we got over here, but once we did, I realized that I was one of a very small group who didn't have a placement yet. Whew, finally I can stop wondering.
I will be working for a quarterly magazine, the Irish Arts Review. Here's the company overview provided in the email:
"First published in 1984, the Irish Arts Review is the definitive journal of art and design in Ireland. Now published four times a year to the highest design and production standards, this beautifully illustrated 150-page review of Irish painting, design, sculpture, architecture, photography and decorative arts is essential reading for lovers of Irish art. With articles written by experts on subjects ranging from pre-history to contemporary, together with artist profiles, critiques of new Irish architecture, interviews with leading Irish artists, designers, sculptors, and photographers, a quarterly diary of events, auctions and exhibitions around the country, the lavishly produced Irish Arts Review is a vibrant and authoritative quarterly review of Irish art and design...Irish Art Review is literally considered to be the Bible of the whole artistic society in Ireland and thus offers a fantastic opportunity for a creative student capable of working on own initiative in a highly rewarding environment with plenty of scope for diversity."
You could say I'm pretty pumped. I feel like this is going to be very fun and so educational to actually be working for a magazine.
Adding to my excitement is the fact that I'm leaving for Galway, on the west coast of Ireland, tomorrow morning with my class. I won't have my computer with me, but rest assured there will be a ridiculous amount of photos to see when I return. Cheers!
