I know I start pretty much every post like this, but it’s been a while since I’ve posted. The school blog seems to be at a sort of standstill at the moment, since nobody seems to be posting. I’ve been busy as well, with the Mocks coming up in January. I haven’t really had much of chance to post, and I also don’t have any subject to post about.
Anyway, I got off school on the 21st. I’m pretty relieved that I’m on my break, and that Christmas is on Tuesday! I’m not really in a festive mood, due to the fact I’ve been so busy. Maybe it’s just because I’m getting older, but it doesn’t seem like as big of a deal as it used to be.
As I mentioned earlier, the Mocks are on sometime in January. The Mocks are basically a practice of the Junior Cert; everything is treated like it’s the real thing. We have two papers in some subjects, like English, Maths, Business and Irish. I know that it doesn’t have any meaning whatsoever, but I’d like to have a bit prepared for it, and that’ll help me with the Junior Cert as well. I plan in spending a good bit of time studying over the break, since I’m not going to get a chance like this until Easter!
In non-school related news, I’ve found a band that I’m starting to like. They’re called Kodaline, and are a band from Dublin. I’ve listened to a few of their songs, and I love the way their music videos always seem to tell a story. The vocals also have a really unique sound that I really love. They remind me a bit of Mumford and Sons, but only a little. By far my favourite song of theirs is All I Want. It actually was the song played during the Google Zeitgeist 2012 video on YouTube. It’s a really good song and I love the music video.
Anyway, I can’t think of anything else to say. It’s really not likely for me to post again bef0re the 25th, so I hope everyone has a great Christmas!
