I got my envelope, went outside the school and it wasn't long before I was marching back into the school annoyed and frustrated with the result I had go from LCVP only to find out that nobody in our school had been awarded a distinction nevertheless I was still annoyed and slightly upset. That was however the only subject which I was upset with other than that I was pretty happy, I got the grades I needed so come tomorrow I hope to be accepting my course in NUI maynooth for a level 8 honours degree in youth and community work.
While I was happy on Wednesday my emotions were very much kept hidden as there were many people who unlike me where not happy with their results, they were disappointed and despite all their hard work they did not get the points that they needed. And while I sat consoling a close friend it dawned on me that the points race which is causing stress on young people may in fact be placing a number on them, they are not a number and they are worth so much more than what grades are on that piece of paper. While a certain amount of points may allow you to gain access to the college course you want those points are not going to allow you to reach your dream, because despite getting the course you need with those points there is always other ways to get what you want. If something is your dream then never give up on that dream, look for other options because there is always other endless possibilities.
So if Wednesday didn't go the way you had planned, don't fret because there is always other ways of reaching our dream.
