Over the past few weeks there have been a few posts about the Irish blog’verse referring to the stress of the Leaving Cert. Now, maybe it is nostalgia, but I don’t remember being all that stressed about it. I know I never really got my arse in gear as regards studying, I’ve always done just enough to scrape by, and I always managed to get what I wanted.
I mean, I turned up for one exam thinking it wasn’t till that afternoon and that I had a different one in the morning.
Or maybe I was so stressed that I forgot to read the timetable?
Nah, I just didn’t really care.
Course there is a much higher media profile to the Leaving these days, but still I think that the stress is over hyped. I can understand it for people who really really really want to do a particular course, but for the majority of Leaving Cert students, do they really know what they want to do with their lives?
Course I tend not to get stressed at all. Unless I’m waiting for a rugby match ;) so maybe it is just me.
