I can’t believe we’re already halfway through August already, what the hell!? Anyways, today I’ve decided to do something a little different because I know I haven’t been that active on this blog for the past two weeks!
I spent the first week of August in Salou in Spain with some of my best friends from school. As you all know, we finished up school for good and completed our exams so we all wanted to do something special where we could celebrate and look back on in years and years to come! Anyways, I had a ball. The first couple of days of the holiday were kind of ruined by the fact that Ryanair CANCELLED our flight to Spain from London within three hours!! It was quite a disaster, but after waiting seven hours in a line to talk to someone from the airline, we finally got on to a flight the next day to somewhere close to Salou and from there on in I had a blast!
I only brought two books to read but unfortunately we were so busy by things like going to Barcelona for the day, theme park, waterpark, the beach and its activities that I barely had time to sit around and read. I got about 150 pages of All These Beautiful Strangers finished but that was it!
Two days after I got back, I was lucky enough to attend an early screening of The Darkest Minds movie, thanks to Dept51 of Easons! I enjoyed the movie and we got free pizza and drinks so all in all, definitely worth it!
Since then, I’ve just been busy in work. There’s this big Irish festival that came to the town where I work yesterday, so I’m going to be working a lot more than usual over the next week and a bit.
In two days’ time, I will be getting my RESULTS from my exams!! It’s so crazy to think that they will be finally over. I’ll find out how much collective points I got from all my subjects and that will determine if I get my chosen course! I’m hoping to do English & Creative Writing in college and I will find out if the college offers me a place in their course on the 20th of August! I’m not as nervous as I thought I would be, I’m just really eager to find out what direction my life’s going in!
So yeah. I’ve kind of taken a step back from writing, reading and blogging this month but hopefully after all my busy events over the next week settle down, I’ll be able to dive back in!
Until next time,
