Fortunately, during lockdown I was able to keep busy with my college work. I mean, it definitely wasn't ideal having to complete my last few weeks of my undergraduate degree from home, but I do think I'd have gone insane if I didn't have work to do during the day. Since finishing College, I've had … Continue reading Listening, Reading, and Watching Lately
The retail industry is a strange area to work in during recent times. I will be the first to admit that to customers coming in the door.

A while back I was clearing out a load of notes that I had kept from secondary school because I finally decided it was alright for me to get rid of my Junior Cert history notes and the likes. I mean, I'm in my fourth year of college so I don't really think notes about … Continue reading Why You Should Consider A Common Entry College Course
For the most part, I've had a great College experience. I've enjoyed almost every module I've taken, I've had the most helpful lecturers a student could ask for and I've made amazing friends. It's been great. But I'm not looking forward to going back this year because the thought of going back for my last … Continue reading Final Year – What To Do After College?
A couple of weeks ago it felt as if this year was dragging. It was like months were taking ages to get through. Yet somehow we've reached September and it really feels like the last third of the year is flying away.
