    Hey guys,

    Basically I'm just finished college, and I've been fortunate enough to get a full-time job starting at the end of September. I'm wondering if their is anything you would like to do in two weeks of freedom. Financial constraints as always would restrict me from travelling very far

    If i had two weeks free, i'd pretend that September was six weeks away, kick back and stop asking the internet questions

    Of course

    Try seeing Ulster by car, it's nice in the summer, particularly the Glens of Antrim and the coast line.
    And it's not too far from you.

    Skellig Michael in Kerry

    I've never done it but it looks a fantastic thing to do

    Sure go spend a few days in Kerry, use a hostel is money is tight. If you want a B&B then haggle hard, never accept their quoted rate.
    Grand if a gang of ye go or if you just go on your own

    They are buses for day trips, lots of options

    you can get a return bus to Galway for a tenner with Gobus. Highly recommend it! plenty of cheap hostels to stay in. Great city for a break - with the arts festival, there's plenty of street entertainment and free stuff without spending anything

    Open a chicken catching service.

    Buy a load of chickens (real ones) and then release them into Dundrum shopping centre.

    Offer service to catch them all.

    Repeat

    starting at the end of September.

    you do realise that 2 weeks from now is the end of July right? Then there is still august and september.

    I think I'd spend 2 weeks brushing up on my months of the year and then 2 months having some fun

    If you read my original post you will see that I said I am just finished college. I still have a few things to finish up before I am officially finished.

    Why the aggression man? It's a decent Saturday morning

    OP there's 101 thing on. Irish strength assoc. are doing events free or nearly free to watch. Or one of the powerlifting world champs.

    No need to be a dick.

    Anyway OP, what have you seen in Ireland? Like there's loads of stuff to do, Cliffs of Moher etc.

    There is also probably gonna be a gaff at the legendary G Con's at some point.

    It's missing a word. I read "just finished college" as that meaning that you "have just finished college" – in other words, you are done completely – whereas I think you meant it as "just about finished college".

    It's ambiguous and needs the extra word to clarify. Don't really any agression in their post; I read it the same way they did. :cool:
