Deich rud a d’fhoghlaim mé le deich mbliana anuas

| Maire Treasa Ni Cheallaigh |

1 — Níl an saol dubh agus bán.

Liath atá sé. De réir mar a théann muid in aois, faigheann muid amach nach coincheap simplí atá sa saol. Cothaíonn sin deacrachtaí. 

2 — Ná stop ag foghlaim.

Tuigim go mb’fhéidir go ndeachaigh mise beagáinín thar fóir leis an gceann seo, ach le deich mbliana tá máistreacht bainte amach agam, agus tá mé ar ais ag an ollscoil arís go ceann cúpla bliain eile. Faraor, níl an feabhas céanna tagtha ar mo chuid Fraincise… nach bhfuil deichniúr eile den phaidirín amach romham.

3 — Is maith iad na skinnies.

Jíons caola. Sheachain mé iad go 2012 agus bail ó Dhia orthu, ach is iad is compordaí agus is ildánaí i mo vardrús. Seaicéad, geansaí, t-léine, sála arda, bróga reatha. Téann siad le chuile shórt!

4 — Bíonn sé níos deacra ar mhná

Tá saol an mhadra bháin ag roinnt, ach is ag fir den chuid is mó atá sé. Cheap mé go raibh comhionannas inscne againn agus mé níos óige. Tar éis deich mbliana eile a chaitheamh ag obair agus sa saol mór, tuigim nach mar sin atá.

5 — Níl mé ‘cool’

Ní hamháin nach bhfuil mé cool, ach chaith mé na blianta ag iarraidh a bheith cool. Tuigim anois nach raibh mé cool riamh, agus chomh maith leis sin, gur breá liom gur duine uncool mé. Ar bhealach, tá sé sin é féin cineál cool… nach bhfuil?

6 — Ní féidir luach a chur ar an tsláinte

Ar ndóigh, bhí a fhios agam é seo le fada, ach níor thuig mé é go dtí gur thosaigh daoine thar timpeall orm ag éirí tinn agus go dtí gur thuig mé go bhfuil go leor nach bhfuil sách aclaí le tabhairt faoin saol go bríomhar. Tug aire do na cnámha agus do na matáin, agus fan súpláilte chomh mór agus atá tú in ann. Is lú dochtúirí a bheidh do chrá.

7 — Ós ag caint ar dhochtúirí é…

Chreid mé riamh gur daoine éirimiúla a bhí i ndochtúirí agus nach bhféadfaí coinneáil leis an méid intleachta atá acu. Tá sin fíor i roinnt cásanna, ach den chuid is mó, níl siad tada níos cliste ná an chuid eile againn, ach go bhfuil siad sásta an obair a dhéanamh sa gcaoi agus go mbeidh milliún rud faoin gcorp de ghlanmheabhair acu. Mar sin, bí sásta nach bhfuil do dhochtúir tada níos cliste ná tú, agus ná déan dearmad nach raibh aon saol acu ach an oiread agus iad ag foghlaim a gceirde.

8 — Tá an t-ádh orm.

Tá leaba agam. Tá cairde agam. Tá saoirse agam. Tá airgead i gcónaí i mo phóca. Sin níos mó ná tá ag go leor daoine. Nuair a fhoghlaimíonn muid é sin, cuireann sé cruth difriúil ar an dearcadh atá agat ar an saol. 

9 — Cuireann rudaí iontas orm fós.

Táim á scríobh seo ar bord eitleáin, agus fáil agam ar an idirlíon. Cuireann sé sin mearbhall orm. Ach beidh an méid céanna iontais orm ar ball ag breathnú ar thinte ealaíne na Athbhliana, nó ag spraoi le páistí beaga, á gcur ag gáire. D’fhoghlaim mé seilbh a ghlacadh ar an iontas sin. 

10 — Níl againn uilig ach seal.

Tá an deich mbliana seo sleamhnaithe. Mothaíonn sé cosúil le leathbhliain. Ná cuir amuigh í.
