A Day to go… Good Luck!

And so, here we are. Today, on Tuesday the 14th of August, it is officially one day until students across the country open that envelope containing the ticket to their destiny.

Well, OK, maybe it’s not quite that dramatic. But it’s still exciting. Well, maybe not exciting, but it certainly is terrifying. After weeks of blissful ignorance and exam fuelled nightmares, we will be plunged into the results. This time tomorrow, there will be no more wondering about results. It will be over.

I know how you’re feeling. You’re probably doing exactly what I’m doing. Since I got up this morning, I have felt sick. I keep looking at the clock, and every hour that goes by, I thank an imaginary higher power that I am one hour closer to those results.

If I could give you any advice, fellow students, it would be this: Relax. Just relax. It’s not all that bad. At the end of the day, these are just results, nothing more. They don’t determine our destiny, as we have been taught to believe. There is always an option, always a way to achieve what we want to achieve. We are the youth of Ireland. We’re made of tougher stuff than they think, aren’t we?

Watch this space tomorrow for some interesting and thought provoking blogs. And make sure to tell me how you get on, whether or not you’re happy with your results and where you think you’re going to college.

And students… Best of luck!
