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!

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 […]

25 Going On 15: Return of the BraceFace

You know that sense of déjà vu you sometimes get? It might be the scent of aftershave that wafts through your nostril and emanates through your very core, reminding you of some intangible memory from your past. Or it might be the dentist ramming a hunk of cold putty into your gob to make your […]

25 Going On 15: Adjustment

Last month, I turned 25. I had a job, an apartment and a social life. Now, I am unemployed, living with my parents and watching more than one episode of Tipping Point a day. Yesterday, the only item on my to-do list was paint my toenails. Welcome to the millennial lifestyle. As I unpacked my […]
