An Unexamined Life Is Not Worth Living

Hey Everyone!

So it's it's the end of another week, and my first full week as a Fifth Year. Scary. This is just a brief little update to let you all know that yes, I'm still here! I've just been so busy with homework and study to post any extra posts.

You may be wondering about the title of this post, trust me I'd be asking too if I saw it randomly! My English class was assigned a 4 page essay with this title to have completed for next Tuesday. This essay is the reason why this blog post is later than usual! The essay was about living and existing on this planet, their similarities if any and of course their differences. I won't go into details about my essay however if you want to find out more about this quote, Google it and mention ''Socreates'' he was the Greek philosopher who said the quote!

Apart from that, my week was absolutely crazy! My teachers are really piling on the homework from the word go. I'm studying all higher level/honours subjects so I get more homework than other people who do ordinary/pass level subjects. However I like my teachers and my classes, so I'm more eager to learn because of that. I can even understand my Irish teacher (she practically speaks Irish for the entire class, saying barely any English) I'm really enjoying History, Business, Ag Science, English, Maths and German!

In German we were watching 90210, in German. It was the very first season and was absolutely hilarious. Being in a class with mainly lads made it quite a hilarious and awkward experience. Watching the video (yes it was a video!) was hilarious as the fashions were simply surreal (in both a good and bad way)

On Friday night I went to the Irish club in my school. We have to speak only Irish for a couple of hours and play games and whatnot. It's quite good really, I went last year too. The club also have Gaeltachts in Galway. A Gaeltacht for anyone not from Ireland is a place in Ireland (there are several Gaeltachts in the country) where you can only speak Irish, no English language allowed. I actually quite enjoy going to the Irish club, it's something different and it's hilarious to be honest! (Playing musical chairs with 30 other teenagers and a Sixth Year singing badly as the speakers weren't loud enough is definitely a highlight)

So that's about it for me this week!
Stay Strong, Happy and Fearless!

  1. #PrayforAveen - I think every teacher decided this year that we should all give up any life outside school so we can concentrate on school work every awakening second of the day :D

    1. And yet they tell us to write an essay about the difference between living and existing.. Yes please pray for me! Teachers are cruel in 3rd, 5th & 6th Yr tbh :(

  2. I'm glad your first week wasn't too bad. I remember hating my first day of fifth year, mainly because I skipped TY and it was like starting school all over again! Good luck with all your honours subjects, much respect to you! I took ordinary maths, I just can't stand it xx

    1. Aw thank you! You skipped TY?! My brother did the same tbh! I'm going to need all the luck I can get! I'm only doing honours maths for the 25 bonus points, ssh ! :D xx


Thank you so much for reading and commenting on my blog! I appreciate it so much.
