What to do after college …

following on from the last post. Here’s the latest…

Donald Trump has taken many steps forward to becoming the republican nomination for the general election. How on earth can people vote for this racist, scaremongering polarizing a**hole who speaks in general terms and without facts. Americans need to get behind Sanders. If Trump had his way he’d start a civil war in the U.S.

In other news, college is moving along and getting ever closer to the May deadline. I still have some questions to answer for myself in terms of my work and it’s purpose. With that, I met the careers advisor in the college who offered some advice and made aware post graduation offers to me. This is were I get lost, I can’t decide if I should apply to do a MA course and if I do, what MA curse will I apply to??? I also have a possible option to apply to go on the European Voluntary Service (EVS) which would mean spending a year volunteering abroad. The other two options on my plate at the moment is to try get an internship in the sector I like to see if that’s where I want to go and that could help me decide what MA course to study. The last option is to graduate and apply for a job, whatever job is available I suppose. I’d like to continue coaching rugby and develop my training and knowledge in that area so the options above will impact that.

So yes, a lot of option available and yet zero decisions made so far.

 

Action over words

Society is crumbling in front of our eyes and yet we sit and watch.

Our young people are been pushed to the edge of a cliff. They have a bleak and limited future.

A world that relies on hope rather than action, religion over reality and someone else other than themselves.

If you can, work for a better tomorrow. If you don’t, that tomorrow could be a nightmare.

 

Investing

The Irish government should create a national free broadband network. For which every household has free access to the internet, with limits on speed and download allowance.

If a household wishes to increase the speed or allowance then they sign up to a private provider.

This would create a smart economy and it will also have educational benefits. Hard pressed Families,! And students can use the access for school and college, in terms of research. Plus individuals can stay connected and not become secluded.

Land, ho!

Packed their bags on their way
to a land far from Dublin’s bay.

Where the sun shines and jobs galore, they once again flocked ashore

Leaving behind what means most
to seek a future and some hope.

Failure of some drove them far, a son, a daughter and even a grand pa.

Many friends they will make, many jobs they will take,but one day they’ll return, to this place which hasn’t been well run.

They’ll have a vision for everyone, a better Ireland a fairer one.
