Rosanna Davidson telling us the day before the LC started how she did 15 hours study each day for her exams was no help whatsoever
In that case it was an op-ed article. The newspaper gives free reign to the person and lets them say what they will.
Anything else would be censorship.
In Laura Brady's case it was bad judgement to choose her even before she wrote anything as her situation is absurdly unique.
So i know you don't want to know and you don't really care, and the critisicm i have recieved in this thread although small compared to the poor other girl i am taking it on board.
I've been a member of these boards a while but when i was told i was being discussed i said i'd make a return to satisfy my curiosity.
Regardless that i almost got banned because of some rule about not popularising events ran by a certain concert organiser.
Im glad people can relate to me, however i feel Laura is getting off quite hard, i have never done anything like this form of writing before, and i doubt she has either.
Also a couple of pages back a guy tried to say that i could have disagreed with the statement, the word 'duh' comes to mind but as the following person said, i was hoping on a character solely on Iago(intrigue).
Anyway i'll probably become more active on this soon enough but as of now ill just browse. Thanks for all the reassuring posts and even the critical ones are welcome.
Which one are you again?
Well, to be fair you've done a good job at giving an idea of he pressures and hopes of the exams.
I think the fact she has done little beyond wax lyrical about herself is what has been so off-putting and that's something your exam diary (as well as others') don't seem as concerned with so it is a problem with the persona she has developed (or has decided to present).
I'd safely wager he's Mark Roche, the guy who is doing the Irish Independent's exam diary.
I actually think he's doing a good job, as I'm sure others do too. He describes the build up outside the exam, the exam itself and after the exam, and he throws in a bit of humour.
Is the one from the Times in the paper today? I was going to buy it to see what the fuss is about.
here here hes doing a great job!!
Thanks guys, and yes, it is Mark Roche!
Just out of Irish, a little early. Decided to come downtown and blog about it I need to sleep so badly =.=
The above post made me laugh, and made me think, and is the best thing I've seen on the internet in a long long time.
It's a wonder she's still writing the diary. We wont be picking up the Irish Times this week. Between her, and Dr. Garret Fitzgerald they can go and get ****ed this week.
I still can not believe they gave her the diary in the first place. Madame Editor, whats the story?
whats ironic is that the editor of the times is originally from where i live and is also friends with my parents.
laura brady has to be the most annoying person on the face of the planet....not all of us can afford to go out and see sex and the city and "trip through the streets of donnybrook" at 2am before english paper two!! seriously, get someone who's more on a level with the standard leaving cert student...
No diary entry today?
i think the times runs from tuesday to saturday aswell!
