The festive season can leave us all looking like stuffed-turkeys to burglars. It’s a time when new phones, iPods, and expensive jewellery are being bought and kept in homes, and with people being busy visiting relatives or going to parties, our homes can be left vulnerable to attack.
Millions in Ireland and around the world will be watching the Christmas edition of Fair City, but how can you arrange your own Carrigstown-style festivities?
It’s coming closer and closer to that big day, and not the good kind either. As more time passes, not very much else seems to be going in, and it isn’t hard to see why people also become emotionally affected from the stress of the exam period. Today, I’m going to discuss the emotional side to the problem.
Nothing is more soul-destroying than that moment of truth after eagerly queuing at the ATM. It finally comes to your turn to type in your pin and select the minimum amount in anticipation of whatever you have managed to have left in your account. You take back your card and gingerly put it back in your purse before making the walk of shame past everyone waiting behind you in the queue. Yes, you have insufficient funds in your account.
Christmas: a time to thaw cold hearts and enjoy heart-warming classic movies? Well, maybe not. Possibly, you just can’t take another hit. And if you see another RTÉ ad for the classics, you just may take your eyes out.
People always tend to forget the real meaning of Christmas, which is, of course, watching movies…. and overeating. For the movie lovers amongst you, Studenty has the Essential Christmas Movies; even if you did use imdb.com to help you with the impossible RTE Guide movie quiz this year.
Some say it’s the season to be jolly, and others say “Bah hambug”. But whether you’re the human equivalent to the Grinch, or one of those creeps who own a large collection of themed jumpers, you can’t escape Christmas.
The second part of our Exams vs Sanity feature; have you started to lose it yet? Take a look at some of these stress-related issues.
You know those christmas films that are on at 6pm every Christmas day, regardless of how Christmas-y thay actually are. Here’s a quick look at what’s coming up this year. RTE has just launched their festive period television guide. Unsurprisingly, over the next month there will be a great deal of movies, which may help take your minds off exams and results, but will probably just be an excuse not to study. Can you afford to miss Uncle Buck this year?
It’s Christmas time! What is going on? During the Christmas season, Dublin city centre is a busy, bustling place, and there are so many events to check out over the festive season, from festive concerts to markets and fairs. So why not reward yourself for all the long hours spent hunched over your desk studying, and check out some of what Dublin has to offer at this time of year.
