Depends on the college, I think some of them are sometimes lenient when it comes to that kind of thing – I'd get onto your college/student union asap and see what advice they have/what help they can give.

Well on campus for first year works out at 110e p/w, but all bills are paid at the start of the year from a 500e deposit. I don't know what they're thinking tbh, I owe 2590e by the end of this month, does anyone know if the college would hold off a little bit on this to be paid or does it have to be paid by that date?


I know in UL that they will take your situation into account. Not sure how it works elsewhere. I reckon go ASAP to the accommodation office and try and work something out.

Having such a bad day today. Everything is just pissing me off to no end. Have to get out of here soon, or i'm going to implode.

Friends never want to do anything, family WON'T do anything, and i'm just sitting here with no money to do anything counting the days off until the Summers over.

Waiting for a set of results to decide even i'm going to college is such a pain in the ass too. This time 13 days i'll know once and for all whether i'm going to get my dream course or i'll be stuck in this horrible town for another year to work my ass off trying to do well and getting nowhere for it.

I hate the education system in this country. Such shíte.

Really just sunk in how un-employment will effect my first year of college.

The search goes on.

FFFFUUUUUUU didn't want to know who won the swimming before I watched it, but while I was waiting for the iPlayer to load they said it on the news while my dad was watching it. Stupid news being informative and shit

I told a girl that I think she's really goodlooking, and with the way that she replied she either didn't get the hint that I like her. Or that she has no interest in me. Either way I think I've fucked it up

Hmm... how exactly did she answer? Might not be as bad as you think - girls can go to ridiculous lengths to avoid getting their hopes up over a compliment.

What ever happened to Jenny?

My arrghh, this women I work with is a complete wagon. We're very short staffed and the managers away at the moment, another girl is acting manager for the week, and since the acting manager is twenty years younger than her, this women thinks she can do whatever she wants. She left me at the till (not my job) and started pricing and moving around books (my job) she'd go off for cigarette breaks the whole time while I never once got a break. Myself and the AM had stuff to do in the stock room, but instead we had to mind the front of shop because she was never to be found, and any time she was around she was arguing with the AM over appointments and treating me like it was my first and I was a idiot! I ended up having to stay an hour after the shop had closed to get all my work done.

I dunno she answered very awkwardly like I was weird for saying it.

Sooooooo, parents told me there's no way I can stay in College next year so I have to Commute. Wouldn't be too bad but now I'm looking at a 2.5 hour Commute to get there and get home every day. ffs.

2 hours 20 minutes travelling every day. Kill me now.

I wouldn't mind but my course doesn't have many hours (Law) so in a day I may have 3 lectures, one at 9AM, 2PM and 4PM.. What am I supposed to do to fill those hours where I have nothing to do?

Gah, college is going to be ****e.

I'm going to be wrecked at the end of each week..


Even though I'm just a half hour commute from UCD I'll be staying on campus most of the time. Between getting work done, working out in the gym and playing/practicing sports I imagine I'll be more than maxed out for time.
There's so so much to do on campus if you want to.
