Graduation

I found out my graduation from college will be held in April. Not sure of the exact date yet but it will definitely be some time in April. I am away one weekend in april, the weekend of my birthday which is the 17th to the 19th. So I hope it wont fall on that weekend, as I desperately want to go to it. My tutor told me that we’ll recieve a letter in the mail shortly, with an invitation to the graduation in it. The invite is for me and two guests. I’ll probably bring my mom and my sister with me. She also said there will be instructions on how to go about hiring the cap and gown. You have to pay to hire those out. I really hope it falls on a weekend that I can do, so I get to go and wear the cap and gown. And get photos. Its important to me to make the ceremony. After all I worked hard in school for a whole year. Now I want to stand on that stage and recieve my certificate and be special for a little while.

Appealing one of my grades!

So most of my grades are out now for the modules in my course. There were four in total. So far I have two A’s And two B’s. That means I will get a 2/1 or a second class honour, thats how it works, if you get all A’s you get a 1/1 which is a first class honour.
I am going to appeal one of my B’s. That is the one where me and my friend had to pull out of our group and do another project on our own just the two of us. We got little support from the lecturers. And they gave us a B for our project which I didnt think we deserved.
It will be a lot of work appealing the grades. I dont even know how to go about it. My friend denise knows though. I told her I’d do it with her. I worked hard on that group project and the others in our group stole denise’s work too so they didnt deserve their B which they also got!
I think the lecturer gave them a b too, because he couldnt be just seen to give denise and me a B and then give the others who were originally in our group a different mark and a higher one.
I hope the appeal will be successful!
I want to graduate with a 1/1!

I got an A on my 3rd module!!

The results of my 3rd module are up on canvas. We had four modules in total for our course. The 3rd one I just finished in late October. For that module, I had to do a poster presentation and a learner log which was 800 words in length. I chose to do my poster presentation on friendly call and on isolation and loneliness, and I did my learner log on what it was like to work on friendly call. I just checked my result and I got an A for both the presentation and I also got an A for my learner log!
I am so very proud of myself! I put in a lot of work into both the presentation and learner log!
That means I will get a 1-1 first class honour in the overall course, as I have all A’s in the 3 modules, and I am hoping this last presentation I did today, for the fourth and final module, I am hoping to get an A on that too!
What a great way to end the night! I can go to bed happy! I am so elated!
This is the best news ever!
❤ ❤ 😀

Done and dusted!

I’m done guys! College is over! finished! Finito!

I went in this morning for my final day!

We had presentations to get through! I did mine on depression in teens! It went absolutely amazing! I got fantastic feedback afterwords! The lecturer said I did great and it was an excellent presentation!

I was very very happy with how it went!

And now, we’re done! Done until graduation in may!

Well it might be april when we graduate, I’m just not exactly sure yet when it will be.

I came home, wrote up my learner log and now I’ve just emailed it to my friend denise who will upload it for me onto canvas!

And now I can breathe! What a day! What a terrific feeling to be able to say I did it! I got through this past year of studying! I’m done! I will be graduating and now I’m free!

I’m sooo proud of myself! I managed to get through it! What a blessing that is!

Presentation time at college

I have been working all morning on my presentation for college, which I will give on Saturday. Its finally done now. I have to give a presentation which is worth 75 percent of my grade for the module we’re doing, the presentation has to target a specific audience, and we have to use narrative to engage the audience. I am doing mine on depression and my target audience is teens. I used a case study and some research and stats to engage the audience. I also discussed the symptoms and causes of depression, and treatment options. I think the finished product looks good, if I do say so lol. I hope I’ll get a good grade. There is another part to the assignment, we must write a 600 word learner log, which is worth 25 percent of the grade. I havent done that yet though. I’m pretty proud that I got the presentation finished. I was worrying about it. I’m so ready for college to be done. On saturday I’ll be finally done. Yay! I am so excited. Its been a tough year. There was a lot of work in the course. I am glad I did it. I am proud I finished it and will graduate soon and get a certificate in mental health in the community.

At my parents, still anxious and feeling off

I am not doing great this evening. I decided to go to my parents tonight instead of tomorrow. So I am here now.
I’ve had a nice long bubble bath and that felt good. It calmed me and made me feel a little bit better. My anxiety is still quite high. I still feel very off.
I gave my PA the morning off tomorrow. I was meant to go to the beauticians in the morning to get my nails soaked off, and get waxing done. However I rescheduled the apt to next tuesday.
I will go to work tomorrow though. I havent been in work this week at all, so I do need to go in. I think I’ll be ok, although I doubt I’ll sleep tonight, as I slept a lot today. I had planned to go out as there was a group of us from the basement club meeting the old staff members for coffee this evening, but I couldnt go. I just didnt feel like socialising with anyone so I canceled it.
I am sure things will get better over the weekend. I’ll be here at my parents now until Sunday. Mom and my sis and me are going to do a little more christmas shopping on saturday afternoon. That will cheer me up. I love the buzz around town at christmas time.
I do need to finish up an assignment for college too this weekend. Its my final one. Thank god! I will finish it on sunday morning. Then I’ll be done with it and can enjoy the last week of college, yay!
I finish on the 7th! Two more classes and we’re done!

Friday evening ramble

I’ve had a pretty good day. I didnt do much. I just relaxed. Mostly I spent the morning chatting to my mom. We were both on our phones for some of it, both on facebook. My mom is now addicted. She is always on there. I only go on there some days and not on others. I did set myself up with instagram though. I am enjoying it. I usually post photos of nitro and me, or of sayings and quotes. I will post some over the next few weeks of things we do as a family, like for example next week or the week after we’ll go to a local christmas market called glow. Its in cork every december. We’re also going to go to a craft fare that is being run to raise funds for friendly call. We’re also going to see the coca cola truck and take my nephew davin to see santa. So a lot is going to be going on over the next few weeks. I’ll also be finishing up school, I finish on 7th december. That day I have a presentation to give, that finishes up the course for us. Tomorrow mom and me are going into town, we’re going to finish off our christmas shopping for the family. Mom also wants to get me some clothes, she wants me to try stuff on so she can get the right size. So we’re going to make a day of it. We’ll also go for something to eat while we’re out. Today mom made chicken curry for dinner. It was yummy. We had rice and pompadoms with it. I ate way too much, but it was delicious. I am stuffed now though. So how has your day gone? What did you get up to?
