Hey guys. Long time no see. I know I haven’t posted anything since January. Whoops, sorry about that. I was pretty busy during my last semester of my Undergrad. But it’s all over now. Finished my undergrad. Scary stuff. I’m getting my results in June so we’ll see how I go. I hope I can hold on to my 1st Class Honours Degree because it would look prestigious on my CV and certificate.
Hey guys, just thought I’d give up a quick update on my time back at Uni. It’s pretty hectic at the moment, even though we’re not properly into the meat of the semester with work loads, but we’ve an idea of upcoming assignments, and it’s a lot! Haha. This year I have these modules:
Hey guys, I just thought I’d give you a little update of where I’m at at the moment. I’m starting my last year of college tomorrow, which is hard to believe. Those 4 years flew! My birthday is also tomorrow so it’s a weird culmination of events (also can’t believe I’m 22 tomorrow! :O ).
Anyway, I’ll be quite busy over the next few months with college work and my Final Year Project so unfortunately I won’t be able to blog as much. I’ll try to post something every once in a while but I’m not making any promises. If I don’t post anything sorry in advance! But you’ll definitely hear from me towards the end of December with my yearly review posts:
Good luck with everything guys! See you soon. 🙂
As I’m sure you all know already, the referendum for same sex marriage in Ireland passed on Saturday 23rd of May 2015. It was such a momentous occasion and a great feeling of elation spread through the country.
I was so happy, not only for myself but for the thousands of LGBT individuals throughout the country (and world), as well as their friends and families. It was such a long and difficult campaign, and emotions were high throughout. But I’m so proud of the result and I’m glad that I was alive to see and be part of an historic occasion. It really felt like we changed history, and I’m so proud to be Irish because of what we as a nation accomplished. Not only do we become one of the countries that allows same sex marriage, but we are the first country to establish same sex marriage by popular vote!
I was following the results throughout the day as each constituency gave their results. The Yes side won with a whopping 1,201,607 votes (62.07%). All but 1 constituency (of 43) voted in favour of same sex marriage. That constituency was Roscommon-South Leitrim which is a rural area. There was some negativity about them being the only one not to vote in favour of it but in fairness it was only by a 3% margin so there was still great support for it in that area.
When I watched the results coming in I was so teary eyed because it was so great to see people standing up for equality and human rights. The scenes in Dublin were just amazing to see. I went out that night with some of my friends to celebrate and it was a great feeling to just enjoy the momentous event. A brilliant occasion to witness and be part of.
A few months ago I was complaining about how my wisdom tooth was causing me pain. Well after a few days the pain died down so I just said I’d leave it. I mean I did go to my dentist to get X-rays, and basically my wisdom teeth are growing horizontally to my other teeth and their pushing against them. It looks so sore (and worse than the picture above! :L ) I’m on a long waiting list to get it pulled out in the University Hospital Limerick (that way I get if for free, or at least a VERY reduced price).
Anyway, so it’s flaring up again and the pain… It’s not even my gum, it’s my jaw. I can’t open it wide. I mean I can open it enough to eat, drink and clean my teeth, etc. But if I want to yawn, there’s no way I can stretch my mouth because it’s way too sore. Hopefully it either fades or I can get it pulled out in the hospital. I just have to deal with it for the moment! 😛
