9-5 Office Job, or Living in the Sun?

I've been travelling a bit recently and also the sun has decided to make an appearance here in Granada so I have been quite busy. It has been in the mid 20 degrees here all week and hit 35 today.....which has just made the thought of going back to rainy Ireland all the more depressing!

Being in lectures with the people who study straight commerce (without the language and year abroad), me and my friends have noticed a certain mindset that infests itself within the undergraduates. It's the norm these days to go through college, pulling out a 2.1 degree with a lot of effort in your final year and applying to every accounting firm willing to take a look at your C.V.

After watching this I suddenly began to wish that I had chosen Computer Science instead of Commerce International, but hey, there's nothing I can do about it now.
