The rollercoaster that is college!

There is no denying that my college experience was a bit of a rollercoaster with quite a few twists and turns along the way. This rollercoaster, began in 6th year when I was faced with the prospect of filling out the dreaded CAO. 

Long story short, I accepted a place in IT Carlow to study Business Management. As early as October I knew that this was not the course for me, so I began investigating my options  either to drop out and reapply to the CAO or obtain a transfer to another college. I began researching the possibility of transferring to different colleges in Dublin instead. And alone behold I was fortunate enough to have received a transfer straight into second year of the Bachelor of Business Studies in DCU. 

In September 2017 I was officially a DCU student which would see me commute 5 hours each day to get to and from college. In third year, I completed my INTRA work placement within Irish Rail’s Commercial Department. And now one year later I have completed my undergraduate degree, with an extensive knowledge of the Irish public transport network to go with it, to say the least. 

I have always been quite honest about my less than glamorous college experience, which I have found from going to open days and just from being a part of the college system for the past 4 years is not often spoken about. I look forward to sharing a snapshot of my journey, which will hopefully help those setting out on their own college journey.

But until then, relax and enjoy your summer the best you can!

Beart gan leigheas, foighne is fearr dó.

PATIENCE IS THE BEST THING FOR AN INCURABLE SITUATION
