Ty Reflection

So for my blog challenge, I'm writing a reflection on Ty as whole. Prepare for the cheese!

So let me just say first that overall, I am glad that I did it, as much as I complain. At the start of the year, it was so exciting, no more exam pressure, and new classes and everything is so new an exciting, and even though near the end of the year you do get a little bored, it's still good, and you still keep doing new things.
I am so glad I did TY for the simple fact I have made so many new friends, all the people in my year that I never spoke to, I new speak to, and I have so many new good friends, so now when I go nto fifth year, any class I'm in I'm guaranteed to know somebody!
Now it's at the end of the year, I'll admit I am looking forward to it being over now, but when I look back over it I'll be glad i did it.
I've actually realised I'm pretty good at relying on myself for things, like I always made sure I did my projects, and I've gotten a lot more responsible about getting work done now, because in TY you aren't spoon fed, if you have your work good, if you don't tough, which will be a good thing to be used to in 5th year.
So overall, I loved it, even though I found it boring at times, I am happy I did it and if I had the choice I would definitely do it again!

Advice to incoming TYs?

Ok, this this month the blog challenge is to write post giving advice to incoming first years.
Well this is going to sound cliché regardless of how I try and phrase it, but here it goes!

-Well I don't know about you, but at the start of every year I promise myself I'm going to join a load of clubs and/or sports, and I never do, and a month later I go, "oh next year so" and it's a big vicious cycle, but seriously, you should use your TY to get involved in things, or you're going to be bored, like the point of the year is to do things we normally don't have time for, so take the opportunity while you can!
-IF you get an opportunity, just take it even if you're feeling lazy. Like do Gaisce if you want, apply to join the bank, student council, and if we get another musical, TY's always get most of the work because we have the most time!
- Ty has this habit of giving you all your projects at the same time, so one minutes you're bored, the next you're completely buried by it all, and I know that doing last minute work is a common thing - I've been doing it my whole life- but make sure you don't hand up rubbish, it stops you being too lazy and if you don't bother doing things you really will regret it..
- Talk to new people, like you actually do make so many more friends, but only if you don't completely restrict yourself to your normal group..
- HAVE FUN! Do remember, it is only TY, don't take everything too seriously, make sure its a year to remember :P

Well that was my cheeseball speech about what I would tell myself a year ago if I had the chance.

Random free class blog

Hey so I haven't blogged yet this week and it's Friday so I probably should..
Not a lot has happened this week, we haven't done any special activities or trips? For the last two classes today though Banba are having a party for the whole year, which should be good! :D
It's almost the end of the year, thank God! As much as I liked TY and everything I am happy for it to be finished, I think it's had it's time.. We're all preparing for TY night at the moment, which is going to be great hopefully! there are A LOT of dances going on, Charleston, Zumba, and our class ones and the whole year has to sing "Seasons of Love" from Rent the musical, I'm not too mad ont he song but I'm sure if I listen to it enough it will probably grow on me.

Well that's about it really it? I have a load of projects to do over the long weekend, FUN!

Bye :D

Retreat :D

Hey, so we went on our retreat, and Mrs. L said top make a motivational poster of something that stuck with us. This is what stuck with me, it's slightly depressing mind you but it think it's something we should all keep in mind yeah?

TY best moments :D

So one of Mrs. L's blog challenges was to right about your best moment in TY, but to be honest, I couldn't chose one? So I'm going to make a list of all the awesome things we have done so far:
- Braveforce Challenge
- Lollipop day
- Carlingford Trip
- Seeing Juno and the Paycock in the Abbey Theatre
- Our Social development day
- The percussion workshop
- The fun walk! (Which we should have won might I add)

Well those are my highlights, well the ones I can think of I'm sure there are probably more :)
Bye :D

Swim a mile with a smile!

So tomorrow our whole year plus the LCVP's are doing the Ian Daly swim a mile challenge, in aid of children's cancer. I'm actually really excited for it! We're aloud do the swim in teams, up to teams of eight, but I've decided I'm going to do the whole mile myself for the challenge, though I'm pretty sure I'll be able to do it, I'm no too bad when it comes to swimming and its a worthwhile cause :D
The new bloggers a bit odd eh?
Right, I'll blog next week and let you know how it went!

So one of Mrs. Leahy's blog challenges is to write a blog post in another language, and well to be honest, I'm absolutely desparate at Irish- always have been- so I'll do mine in Spanish. Unlike some of the LAZY people beside me, I will write mine with minimal aid of Google Translate.. So I'll talk about myself?

Hola.. Me llamo Aoife. Tengo deciseis años, me cumpleaños es el doce de enero. Vivo en Celbridge y voy el colegio se llama St. Wolstan's.
Mi grupo favorito es The Coronas, me encanta su musica! fui a su concierto en El Olympia el año pasado con mi amiga.
