Wahey! Another week and I wont even remember what study is like!
I might not ever have to sit an exam again, isn't that just wonderful, I think that's worth a smile. Really wish I could drink properly with the lads (and lassy) on Thursday, I can have a pint but yeah. I think the results are out on the 10th of June! How crazy is that! 3 weeks until I find out like.

Applied for a PhD in UCD (4 years on plasma lasers) and emailed a lecturer from TCD too to ask for advice/help. Have to find more things to apply for soon, ensure I have something to do for the next few years!

Ran into Sarah McCall yesterday evening, she was on her way home after enjoying some sun, I was on my way home from not enjoying some study. Always lovely to see her, always lovely to see most people I know. I miss most people I know!

Went with Odette to a Movie Extra's thing yesterday too, she signed up having been told you get a lot of work (mostly in things like Fair City but it's all money in the end of the day!). Open casting call on Wednesday&Thursday in Liberty Hall for the Tudors, Cian did that last year so I figure after my exam on Thursday I will go to that, see if I can make some monies.

Exam now at 1pm, think I should be able to get a good mark in it, nuclear and astrophysics, then another tomorrow which should be okay, diagnostic imaging, then Thursday I have advanced optics which should also be okay. So I think I'm all set! Then it's lots of fun, sun... gun? No, porbably not. But people! Lots of people. Starting with Odette, Rory, Clem, Kevin... don't think I've arranged to meet anyone else yet. Book now!

Anyway, off to study,

Yo ho ho

And a bottle of... water.
Not drinking isn't fun,
I have moments where I'm glad I can't,
removing temptations etc. but it does make me feel abit silly.
That and I kinda miss that warm fuzzy feeling, the one when you know you're taking it a bit too far. I guess that's the main reason I'm glad too...

Anyway, exams start tomorrow. Will be waking up in almost exactly 13 hours to head in early to get the last few hours (essential) cramming done. All my exams are at 1pm, which is pretty gravy. Exams are Mon,Wed,Fri,Mon,Tue,Thurs. So have a few days around the place to finish off the study. So many bits of courses not done (of course that's why I have time to blog!) and then I'm done on the 18th!

Other than that, lets see, what else haven't I said in this blog?
Did I mention me and Odette were 3 years on the 3rd of May?
Saw Kev for lunch on Friday, played some MTG in Joy Of Coffee, which was good.
Still haven't applied for any postgrad stuff... or gotten on to t'old survey mine to get my old job back (we can hope!).

Other than that I am cold, very sleepy and doubting I will be ready for any of these exams really. If I can pull 75% off in each then I have my first. I think that is an attainable goal. And if I have my first I might just get a PhD position which pays. Which would rawk teh sawks like they have never been rocked... or something. Maybe. Brr.
