So seventeen years after I entered the world, it finally rolled around. Just as I switched on my laptop I made a decision.. I’m going to embrace the Leaving Cert! Bring it on.
Well my name’s Chloe, and believe it or not, I’m a sixth year. I’m from Wexford and I’m a pure culchie, while being an absolute nerd (Harry Potter reference in the title? Decided to pay homage to a fellow redhead) AND party girl. It’s all a balancing act, and usually study is the neglected part of my life but this year, everything will change. Pfft not, reading the other posts made me realise everyone else here is SMART. Therefore I think I’ll be the token blogger.. I’m not effortlessly funny or charismatic so my blogs are going to be long, honest affairs!
I do nine subjects –
- Home Ec
- Applied Maths
But if I had my way, that list would be veryyyyy different. My choice subjects were Physics, Chemistry & Religion but not enough people wanted to do them/ my subjects blocks got mixed up. But may as well make the best of it so I do A.M. outside school with the local boys school. Tomorrow is my first official day back as a sixth year and I’m actually excited.. Like, I’m going to be allowed use the SIXTH YEAR GARDEN! That’s big stuff.. A GARDEN. For SIXTH YEARS. Have to love it.
So I’m considering a lot of different courses.. Maybe Medicine, Dentistry, Psychology, Law? I need help.My aim this year is to do well, decide on what to do next year, keep up debating, rowing & football and go back to the Irish Math Olympiad. And try not to murder my sisters if they interrupt my ‘study’ in the shed. You read that right, I have a shed for studying. Recession, howarya.
Oh I feel all happy & excited about this year, it’s disgusting. But seriously.. Bring it. We’re gonna do this!
