Ballymaloe Day 82: The final blogpost

Well, it’s over, that’s it, c’est fini. 83 posts altogether including day zero – it’s been a roller coaster of a ride.

It’s hard to describe what how I’m feeling about the written exams right now, but the definite overall feeling that’s running through my veins is exhaustion.

I barely slept last night and headed into our final exams willing the day to just fly by – and that it did.

The exams were by no means easy – in fact they were very, very hard. Everyone I talked to today found them difficult and with three papers to get through, our energy levels plummeted quickly.

It’s hard to believe that we had that many things to learn on the course and to say it’s colossal is an understatement.

But that being said – the exams done and hopefully, though I’m not entirely confident, I did well.

Taking some time out to dance around my bedroom with my roommate Maddie, it’s now time to doll ourselves up and get ready for more nosh.

Tonight we’ve our final farewell dinner hosting by all of the teachers and Darina and Rory – so no doubt a fun-filled evening with food and wine is to be had.

Cheers! We did it! Bonne nuit.
