Quotes

"I don't want to be here in the same situation this time next year and it seems the only way to guarantee that is to do it allall over again, but I really don't want to have to. The Leaving Cert was such a horrible year."
The college atmosphere can be extremely distracting and there are those who live by the dangerous philosophy proffered by South Park's Chef that "there's a time and a place for everything, and it's called college."
