When I did my Leaving Cert a few years back I honestly had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I had put down courses I was really unsure about just for the sake of it and because I felt that people expected me to know where I wanted to go in life. I wasn’t sure if I even wanted to go to college, I never had that deep desire to get going and get out of my house as quickly as possible because I was such a homebird (still am) and was just all over the place in general. When I got my results I remember feeling a bit disappointed because I didn’t think I would get offered any of my courses and watching everyone around me discussing where they would be going to college and who they would be living with got me in a bit of a heap because I thought I should just know where I was going and where I would be a year or two from now. To my surprise, I did end up getting offered one of my courses but at that stage I still wasn’t even sure if college was for me. I felt thrilled anyway though, I really was proud of myself after putting myself down on results day. I was never a really academic person and I know I could have studied a lot more than I actually did but I knew what I loved and I knew what my passions were even if I couldn’t find them on many of the pages of my school books.
