Blog Awards Ireland Launch Party

Blog Awards Ireland Launch Party

Am I a socialite now? So last night I went to the launch of Blog Awards Ireland 2014 last night and I came very close to not going. In the days I got very socially anxious about going to such a big event. I knew my […]

Now You’ve Got Your Results…

Now You’ve Got Your Results…

Time to brick it for the offers eh? I honestly wouldn’t bother.

When I was getting my results I was away in London which definitely softened the blow of not doing as well as I had hoped. What wasn’t any easier was hearing my Mum tell me that if I had put more effort in I would have done better and gotten my first choice course. However I believe everything happens for a reason and that I got the marks I deserved for the work I put in.

Besides there was enough crap going on in my life at that time that the mark I got was phenomenal considering.

So no I didn’t get into the course I wanted, but I did get into a course that shaped me as a person. Now I have a kick ass well paying job. No it wasn’t what I wanted to do then but it is what I want now. 

And I always have the choice to go back to college and be a teacher like I wanted and still have a good thirty year career out of it.

So just go with the flow, whichever offers you get, take advantage of it and look on the bright side, maybe it is meant to be.

I’m off to the launch of the Irish Blog Awards tomorrow. Stay tuned for posts on that and my Manchester trips this weekend!

I also want to just take a moment to reflect on the loss of Robin Williams. Whilst I never knew him he was a favourite of mine and was a strong figure as I grew up. I can only hope his soul is at peace and that the world remembers him not for his death but his work and life.
