P.S. Things I learned about Ireland

ps-i-love-you

Last night I settled down to watch P.S. I love you, probably about time I did, seeing as Cecila Ahern who wrote the book is from down the road.

On top of that meself and her Da go way back.

Obviously the book got the Hollywood Makeover along the way and all in all it was a pleasant enough journey. There were a few things though I though were a bit mad.

We’re Halfway There

Now that all our assignments and exams are done, it means that I’m half way through my degree.

The decision to return to education wasn’t one I made lightly but it was one that needed to be made.

I had been working for myself for a few years and technology being the way it is, I knew if I didn’t get myself a decent qualification, I’d be left behind and wouldn’t have a job.

At the end of all the decisions and queries, it came down to Multimedia in DCU or Media Arts in DIT.
