Mmm. I've been looking up courses and such because I have to CAO (yes, I'm using it as a verb) by the 1st of February. You know, I'd prefer to remain a bum the rest of my life, but alas, I cannot. So, I've been favouring Arts in Maynooth.
What were those, screams of disgust? Shock? Well, through Arts in Maynooth I can do English -- yummy. UCD is seriously fucked up. I don't have enough points for English as a degree, but the Arts programme in UCD is incredibly complicated. And also, I think I can only do English if it's crammed in with History, Philosophy, Psychology (not so bad) and Economics (ugh). I'd prefer things to be easy, especially after witnessing Alison's struggle at the start of her year with subjects.
I'm not quite sure what else to apply for, you know. Surely I don't need to apply for much anyway because I know what points I have?
The luas to Kilmadcud (where my dad picked me up) brought such a flock of mounties. On they came, hair straightened and lightened, skin a tangerine hue, clothing of a pink, bejewelled with stylish accessories, ugg-booted variety. Out of the 10 there, only 1 had dark hair -- and she was Asian. Serious topics of discussion included, "You'd need a wardrope assistant for that," and "I lost 2 pounds dancing last night!"; one only had to note that such sentences were repeated with said first person changed to third: "Ashley lost 2 pounds dancing last night?". This was especially puzzling as they were in such close proximity.
They really took over the Luas, too! Not only with the chatter, but they almost made camp there, sitting around the pole (perhaps a future profession in the making?) in the open space of the tram. 'Twas not good.
WHAT?!?! Maynooth??? Are you mad? How would you get there every day? Unless you live on campus, it'd kill you off altogether!
Also, the UCD thing isn't so hard, I was just stupid. But for arts you don't *have* to do anything (Especially Economics!!! EWWWWW!!!!) That's the whole point of the Horizons thing; that you can do anything at all over the whole college. Like I do Sociology, Politics, Film Studies and Global Justice, but Laura does Sociology, Art history and Psychology. It's so varied there really is very little you can't do!
Oh my God!!! Did Ashley REALLY lose 2 pounds dancing last night?!?!!?!?!?!?!?!
