On weekend we cleaning our apartment the first time. We ask some times for a vacuum cleaner but you never see one and at a meeting with Margarete, our contact person in Ireland we had a talk to the other guys from the other OSZIMT class and hear that they have a vacuum cleaner since the beginning of our time here. That’s the reason that we never see a vacuum cleaner. Now after 6 weeks we can vacuuming our apartment. See the results…
On Thursday it was Dominik´s birthday. His parents were in Dublin this week and we went to temple bar. Temple bar is beautiful old part of Dublin where you can find a lot of restaurant´s and Pubs. We ate in a small restaurant and have a nice evening.
Now we have pass 6 weeks of our Ireland trip and we can see the end. Only 2 weeks are in front of us. At the beginning of this week we do the same like the last week. We install a lot of machines with linux and windows and inventory all in our system. The time at facebook was not the most fascinating time but it was no hard work and after work is done we played a few games pool. I think it is good to be here for two months to increase your English skill and learn a little bit about the life in other countries but I am happy to fly back to my family and friends next week.
The last week of working is quiet calm. I have to check some more laptops to be ready for presentations and do all the rest of paperwork for InternEurope and the Europass. I’ve also done quiet well with my form to programm but i have to admit that it is and will not be finished. Finished in a sense of implementing it in the productive systems of the University, and there are still some little things missing.. it got a bit difficult in the end to get a solution to make the form sending confirmation emails out to all the department bosses if someone needs access to their storage and hold this form-request in queue until all is confirmed.. but they will get a new spanish guy for a work placement in september who knows about programming and stuff like that. i will save my progress and maybe he can use it.
On friday my supervisor organized to go to a chinese all-you-can-eat restaurant at launch break with all our colleagues to say good bye.. after it i’m done and the last weekend will start.
We got a long weekend with a holyday on monday, so good conditions for some more multicultural interaction 😉 we were invited to some spanish guys to tase some beer and good bushmills whiskey. It was a long night but it was very helpful considering to improve our english and social skills alot 🙂
The next two days we rested and chilled out in our accommodation. The weather wasnt good anyway. And to be honest, the last week is coming and we all start to looking forward flying back to Germany!
On last friday we had a quick meeting at the internEurope agency to fill out some paperwork and also a survey about our stay here in Belfast and all around that. The results were quiet good exept the topics about accomodation and especially the internet. Sry but we had to give some devastating grades to it! We heard from our portuguese mate that he has to move to another house next week because the contract about this accommodation is running out. So well they just got this piece of living space just for us. I can just hope they will learn for the future that they check the availability of internet before they spend there money.. or maybe they just couldnt find anything better at this time -.-
