Alas, it is all OVER!! School, exams, teachers, all of it. Never again will I invest so much energy and time into something that takes more away from my life than it gives. The Education System here in Ireland, especially for the Leaving Certificate, to put it nicely, is shi...I mean, could do with a bit of work. You got to school for six years to be tested on your memory of two year's worth of work. It's a topic that is bound to set off most people who have been through secondary education and I don't blame them. Buut I am done with all that jazz now and for now I'm perfectly content with not thinking about the Leaving Cert. until August 17th when I shall get my results.
I sat my last exam two days ago, on Friday. Having already had my graduation is felt odd seeing the people I had already said goodbye to weeks earlier all gather around for our exams. It made me feel as if I hadn't really moved on like I wanted to. Walking out of my last exam, I felt as if I was finally turning the page on a chapter of my life that needed to end a long time ago. I know there are some people who say your school days are the best days of your life and there definitely were some great days but the bad ones weren't too far away either. I've made great friends and memories over the last six years, some I plan on holding onto for many years to come but for others our time together has come to an end. It is the flux of life and you must change with it or be left behind.
Thus this month's playlist is a little on the sadder side to symbolize the sadness of leaving behind what belongs to the past and some brightness too to symbolize keeping with the forever moving current of life and time and looking ahead with curious & excited anticipation. I hope you enjoy!
P.S Hello My Name is Doris (movie) has totally reignited and fueled my love for indie pop. I can see next month's playlist will be off the wall and electrifying! I'm also totally wishing Baby Goya and the Nuvlear Winters were a real band because damn they's be amazing!
