nah, just a lot of things going on atm, some that make sense, some that don't. some that are here in the real world, others generated by my own head.

it's very frustrating. but it'll resolve itself. it usually does.

Well, I suppose for some things yeah, but it's just a general feeling I had of this overwhelming claustrophobia, a feeling of being trapped, and wanting to break down walls.

For some reason I also felt strangely aggressive, I definitely had to keep that under control, though I found it difficult.

There was the matter of us lot being told that the locals and the EUs were going to get preference over the non-EUs for jobs, due to some European Union legislation, regardless of what TCD has always done. There was a feeling amongst non-EUs of being shafted by TCD, which I suppose isn't very forthcoming with all this info, requesting instead that our class reps relay all this info to us.

I'm not surprised that they would take preference over the rest of us. But I am annoyed that we were not told earlier.

Having said that, I had the oppurtunity to apply elsewhere, and yet I didn't, so I suppose (as with everything else, as usual) I have only myself to blame.

Ugh.

it is not something new, preference over EU over non-EU, and it has always been a lingering fear for every batch of final years, and i am quite very surprised by your ignorance of it (ignorance in the sense of absence of knowledge) for if you haven't heard it from me, you would have heard it from grace, or not, definitely the ever-grumbling WCKL! but on the other hand, i thought i heard from audrey just the other day that both tallaght and james's have actually approved up to ten fifteen new intern jobs respectively, which would be sufficient to cover this spillage of students issue?

but indeed it is somewhat sneaky to relay the message via the class reps. did you not have a career evening of sort where the relevant parties expound on these issues?

and PLEASE do not tell me that you have missed your aussie deadline???

There's a story behind this.

I was framed for hiding his icecream, by another friend. It really wasn't me, though in future should this happen I shall just claim ownership and eat it. :D
