Hi ho Hi ho, It's off to work we go

Hey guys,

Back this week after a fantastic 2week long Christmas break and already I have made advances in my mini company, recieved my Christmas test results, started my second work placement, and visited the BT Young Scientist exhibition. It's been a loooong week.

Of course, it was torture getting out of bed at 7:30am on Monday morning, but I've gradually gotten back into the swing of things, and you know, this week was a pretty good one. We kick-started this week by making some delicious scones that were nearly gone by the time I got home, and by preparing for a new project, something I think is going to be really enjoyable.We're going to be making teddy bears! Let's hope when i'm finished it will resemble a teddy bear, but none the less, i'll try my hardest :)

I started my second work placement in a ridiculously posh hotel spa, and it was so so enjoyable. If you'd like to read more about that, you can click on a link to that blog on the top right hand corner of this page.

We were up and out bright and early Thursday morning to greet our fellow students and explore the scientific grounds of the Young Scientist Exhibition that's being held all week in the RDS, Dublin. We had a fabulous day, seeing lots of amazing scientific discoveries and experiments and of course, stocking up on looads of free things. I even entered myself in a competition or two in an attempt to win an ipad. If you're in Dublin this weekend i'd definately recommend you go and visit!

My mini company group and I have also been working like mad women trying to get our report completed and rushed off to the judges for the competition. The deadline is soon and the whole class is hectic, franticly trying to finish a 20- page report in what little time we have left!

So that's all from me this week, keep an eye out here  for more posts about the life of a Transition Year student every week.

Till next week,
