I should really be sleeping

So its ten minutes to 12 on a Sunday night, i have to be up in about 7 and half hours and i decided to update my blog. DISCLAIMER: If this blog is disjointed and makes no sense blame it on the evil tiredness elves.

So I've been in a school for a month now and I've come to the conclusion that its more work then i remember it being. It probably doesn't help that I've taken on an extra subject but still lots of work. Now don't get my wrong I don't completely hate school, in fact I love English, my teacher is awesome and yeah its just generally awesome. So its not that I hate school its more that apart from getting into college I really don't see any use for a lot of my subjects, and that bugs me. Irish for example, I like Irish... well I like the makey upy Irish me and my friends use casually but the subject itself I don't see all that useful. I don't live in an Irish speaking part of Ireland, I don't intend to live in and Irish speaking part of Ireland and in 2 years time when I'm in University (hopefully) I don't see myself worrying about weather I have the right verb ending. To me Irish is really just something I have to do to get to where i want to be, its fun to talk to my friends every now and again in Irish but thats it.

In completely unrelated news....I have solved the Rubik's cube!! kind of... As some of you may or may not know there is a youtuber called Dan Brown and he has a tutorial on how to solve a Rubik's cube on his channel. Pretty much all I did was follow his instructions. Easy as pie. I'm not super fast at it yet, I'm still trying to get under 2 minutes. But it just makes me smile knowing I can do it! Also it was on my list of things to do at some point.

Lastly, as I said English is my favourite subject. Last week my teacher handed us out 2 articles from the Irish Sunday Times, and told us we would have to write a letter to the editor in response to the article in class. So we did. He corrected them and told some of us that our letters were of publishable quality, mine was one these. So i sent it in and this morning when I got the Sunday Times what did i see ?! Thats right, my letter!! I'm still super excited about it. I can't believe it got published! And now for your viewing pleasure is my letter.
