Exam Results and Irish Dance

Me: “My exams are over now so I’ll actually do some blogging!” Also me: doesn’t even plug computer in for a week Well. I didn’t mean to leave it more than two weeks before following up on my last post, but sadly the post-exam period brought with it a nasty migraine that meant I couldn’t face looking at screens, and even though that’s mostly gone now, I’ve still been completely unmotivated.

Feis Report: First Kelley O’Boyle Open Feis

Well, it was pretty hectic, yet we seemed to wait around forever before it started! They had to wait for the U14 Preliminary Championship results to be read out so that my lot could start, seeing as I’m in U14 and that. Shows what I was up against if half the people I was competing against were in Championships. Anyway, first up was the Primary Reel, and there were only two of us. Never mind, guaranteed trophy, though it means…
