Why I changed my mind about #Repeal

When I was in first year of college, I joined a pro-life group. It was Socs Day and I signed up without a second thought. I was studying human rights at the time and I thought this would be in keeping with those beliefs. The right to life? No-brainer. I’m against the death penalty, so […]

Antisocial Áine or Basic Brenda?

Ah, social media. We’re all swimming in the sick, sick sea of social media. And where would we be without it? Sure, a lot happier, more productive and rid of the crushing ineptitude we feel when we compare ourselves to those who seem funnier/smarter/fitter/prettier than us, but hey. We do also have memes. I HAVE […]

Oh hey there fellow kids, where do you go to club?

So … where do the cool kids hang out these days? I found myself asking a younger, cooler colleague this very question recently because guess what? When you’re 26 years and 9 months old (the ripe old age for a quarter-life crisis, I’m told), your finger is no longer on the pulse of the hottest […]

Fatpants are all that fits me right now

Welcome to the new year, you fat pig. Thanks to your inability to control yourself over the festive period, you are now five pounds heavier and, frankly, a disgusting shell of a human being. (The January ads are a lot crueller than the pre-Christmas ones, aren’t they?) Anyway, if you, like me, are feeling more […]

CynicGal Guide to… Your First Smear Test

One of the joys of being 25 – apart from two-day hangovers, quarter-life crises and developing a ‘bad knee’ – is being eligible for a free cervical check. Yaaaay! So naturally, before you do something for the first time, you Google the shit out of it. Be wary of seemingly innocuous phrases that become more […]

Licence to Kill: The Not-so-Epic Fail

It’s the night before the driving test and I’m physically ill. I’m revising road signs that I swear I’ve never seen before and I’m half dreading/hoping that the RSA will cancel my appointment due to frost/administrational error/a severe case of gout. I manage to get about 45 minutes of uninterrupted sleep before I drag myself […]

CynicGal Guide to…House Hunting

They say that starting a new job and moving house are two of the most stressful things you’ll ever do in your life. This is an over-exaggeration. Looking to rent a room in a house is great craic. And looking in Dublin?! Piece of piss. In case you are having trouble, however, do read on. […]

CynicGal Guide To… Interviews

Hi everyone! After some field research, I have conducted an extensive list of points one must adhere to when called for interview. This is not a tongue-in-cheek guide; I am extremely serious when I say that there are no traces of sarcasm throughout. Rule 1: Appearance Appearance is worth about 95% of your interview. If […]
