It`s February, and us fourth years are still being kept busy!
Yesterday my YSI (Young Social Innovators) group who`re tackling alcohol abuse in irish teenagers joined forces with the YSI group against drugs to raise money for the Aislinn Centre; a rehabilitation centre for young adults in Ballyragget. We had a valentine`s day themed cake sale (needless to say my kitchen was an atrocious mess Sunday night!) , painted nails, charged for the privelege of wearing pink accessories - think tights, lipstick, hairbands! Though we haven`t yet counted the money, I reckon we raised in or around E300!
We went to UCD last Wednesday, and despite the unfortunate incident of a friend of mine (let`s not name names) walking head first into a lampost a good day was had by all! We were split into groups of 10 and given an informal tour by one of the students from UCD.
We`re still going strong with our computers classes - we had the first part of our official IC3 exam today - the tension waiting outside room 14 was ridiculous. Despite the majority of us completely maybe freaking out, all was graaaaand and we were fine 5 minutes afterwards!
So all of that is important I won`t deny, but the BIG news? I`m going to Berlin with the rest of the senior german classes on Friday. So. Excited. Thing is, it appears I`ve packed for a beach holiday and it`s gonna be -3 degrees (maximum). I may rethink my holiday wardrobe....if I have the time!
