HonjoThe last 4 years!

So it started in my third final year of secondary school when my friend and I decided to learn and so we set up a girls rugby team. Simple as! It began as a touch/tag team but we were pretty determined to progress to full contact.
The toughest hurdle was setting up a girls team and encouraging girls to give it a go. We managed to get a few regulars and after a time, it was a matter of asking people to bring their friends for one session and making sure we got them hooked on their first go!

The team progressed quite well doing training once or twice a week and we started playing a few friendlies with other girl school teams who were starting up too.
Eventually the local Rugby Club in Tallaght caught on to movement and started inviting girls up to their training sessions. I thought this would be a good way to improve my skills with a bit more speed. I was the only one who showed up.

Being under eighteen I wasn’t actually supposed to play with the Tallaght team but I got a few minutes on the wings for a couple of matches. I learned a hell of a lot and started to think about my favourite position, and what I might be good at.
I had to stop doing rugby in my final year of school for studies and intended to pick it back up in college. Unfortunately the college training grounds and times didn’t suit me.

So here I am in Barcelona now, and I am looking once again for another team to give a crack at it.
Submersion in the sport and avid attention to all of the tournaments, big and small, is what made me learn the ins and outs and rules. After that it’s a matter of getting out and training sun, rain or snow. 2 weeks ago

JavaScript is a much more useful language to learn. It will also enable you to understand hyper-fast server-side frameworks like Node.js, or rapid development ones like Meteor. 2 months ago

KatrujeCodecademy Rocks!

I’m about 1/3 way though the Codecademy tutorials on Ruby. It’s a really elegant and powerful language with a really simple syntax. I love it so far!
