ADDING FORMALITIES TO MY WEEK: WHY I WILL NEVER BE CHOSEN FOR THE UCD PROSPECTUS
This morning I made my 9am Friday lecture. This isn’t necessarily impressive in any way (well, depending on how studious a person might consider themselves to be…) except for the fact that last night was the L&H Strauss Ball. SUCH an epic occasion. I even learnt to waltz for it – that’s how impressive an event it was set to be. And it most definitely followed through. We were greeted with roses on arrival and each male in attendance had a card to fill with ten waltzes – a different lady expected for each one. Not to boast (cue blatant boasting) but I reached a personal best of making it onto twelve cards. Those lessons were most certainly not in vain. The reception was great, the dinner was delicious and the rest was exactly as I had expected it to be. It seemed like the perfect finish to semester one – I can now say I sent it all off in style. A lace ballgown kinda style if I’m being exact. Excellent.
