So let's plan this gathering in our summer holidays. I myself would like July as I might have to resit some exams in August. What about yourselfs?

Another question; if I want to make a poll, should I create a new subject?

Well I've voted either July or August, but if July, it would have to be late July because both my parents work in schools and that's when they finish. Although I'll have finished my exams by then, I wouldn't be able to come without my parents.
Also early August - I think those of us doing GCSE's (I'm looking at nessieq and me here :lol: ) get our results in August. I think that speaks for itself :mrgreen:

Still, I would really like to come :!: :P :!: :P :!: :P

i'm with Grania, although i suppose going to donegal would be a really cool way to either celebrate or comiserate (hopefully not the latter) about our results. august for me, and early.

You wont need to comiserate, miss "i've only ever gotten one grade under a B" :P .

Though i don't know if i'd go or not, i'm indifferent. Whatever. ^^

When do you guys get your results? Is it the same as me - 25th August?
I think we should meet on the forum that evening and celebrate (hopefully :D ) together.

Yeah, late August might be better - We have to come back early from France for my results, so that might fit in well :lol:

Not sure. If I were lucky enough to make it, I would probably take a course with Oideas Gael, and they have things going on in both months.

Which month has better trout fishing? (Translated: which month has fewer flying bloodsuckers?) :mrgreen:

And October!!! We've got so many here right now that you get in the car and have to squash about five before you do anything else! I really hate those things - my parents have a net, it's alright for them! :D

About 'B' grades - I have this terrible habit where if I get anything below that I get sort of worried and almost depressed so I SERIOUSLY hope I get good passes in my exams - I'm not sure I could cope with anything else :) :oops: :mrgreen:

Are you a year above me then? I'm year 11 :D :?

Just to expand a little on the grades thing (although I know it's seriously off topic :oops: ) I hope you can impove your grades :) I have to say, I don't think I've ever had an E, and if I did they'd probably have trouble dealing with me :mrgreen:

I got some creative writing coursework back today - seriously disappointed; I got an A when this time last year I only dropped 2 marks and got an A*. I know it doesn't sound drastic, but I spend nearly all my spare time writing (when I'm not on the forum that is :lol: ) so I was kind of hoping for a good grade. :)

Then again, maybe doing so much is making my writing worse! *gulp* :?

I hope no one minded my saying that, but I rather like being able to talk about things - it makes me feel better :)
Thanks - Grania

That might be quite true.. :mrgreen: Actually, I do a bit of writing myself now and then, and I find that when I try really hard to write something good I never succeed. It might be 'not bad', but certainly not good. When I just write whatever is on my mind and whatever comes up in my head (it's like writing a story that already exists fully in my head- I can hear the words, I *just* have to get it out and write it down), just for the sake of writing and not for trying to be a good writer, then I write something that is acceptable, and sometimes I'm quite satisfied with those things I've written.

It's the same with playing music (if you play an instrument). When I try really hard to play something well on my fiddle, I fail. When I play by just doing 'nothing', i.e. just play like I'm using the fiddle to sing, then it's fine. Problem is, I have to set aside all my worries, frustrations and all the feelings irrelevant to the music I am playing at that particular moment. Play of the sake of the music and nothing else... it's very honest, very difficult but very easy if you do 'nothing'.

Won't do it again, promise :mrgreen:
