Paws on Earth

There comes a time in your young adult life when you realise what the important things are. You begin to envision your future and who might be play the integral roles in your potential family. You feel your biological clock ticking and you wonder if you might be ready to take the next step. Could […]

‘Sorry, I Have a Boyfriend’

The season of socialising is upon us and we are once again lured into an intoxicating scene of boozing and nightclub hopping. The essence of an Irish Christmas, after all, is a drunken sing-song in a smoking area. On a serious note however, for young women, the yuletide period can be troublesome and potentially dangerous. […]

‘Tis the Season to be Jiggly

If one more person talks to me about getting into shape for Christmas, I shall scream. For the entire span of November and December, we seem to have a ticking countdown clock to The Big Day where all our hard work will have culminated into a sleek physique in a sexy Christmas cardigan. Crash course […]

Licence to Kill: Insuring the Uninsurable

So, fellow drivers, it’s been a while. Almost five months to the day, in fact, that I embarked on my very first driving lesson. Eleven hours later, I am currently one away from completing my Essential Driver Training course. Which of course means that I am quite the accomplished driver and the practical test will […]

I Hate Romance

Week 3. The hatred continues to bubble in my cauldron of contempt. While you may have thought I had run out of steam, I shall renounce yet another girly attribute that has been unfairly foisted onto womankind: romance. To be clear, I am not exactly flinging eggs at young couples on the street. I am […]

I Hate Cooking

Following on from last week’s rant, I’d like to tackle another assumption that is widely believed about the female population. I hereby debunk the theory that all women love to cook. We’ve come a long way since the Stepford wife stereotype that we all love to don an apron and whip up a meal for […]

I Hate Shopping

As we will shortly be heading into the season of commercialism and excessive spending, I’d like to take this time to reject a massive female stereotype and make a bold confession: I hate shopping. While I love having new clothes, the act of buying them, for me, is tantamount to torture. I don’t understand the […]

Taxicab Confessions

Anyone who works in the service industry will tell you that their job is the absolute worst, and they generally deserve that title. Except for when it comes to taxi drivers; they win every time, hands down. First and foremost, they have to deal in close proximity with drunk people. At least bartenders can walk […]

A Very Irish Hallowe’en

Once upon a time in Ireland, All Hallows Eve was a pagan festival that celebrated the souls of the dead. Families would traditionally share barmbrack, bob for apples, carve Jack O’Lanterns from turnips and start a bonfire. These days, we smather ourselves in Euro 2 face paint and head out to transform yet another traditional […]

Eat. Sleep. Eat. Repeat.

Once upon a time, I drank a little wine…and managed to STAY AWAKE. These past few years, however, my ability to keep consciousness has deteriorated rapidly. Sure, I’ve had the occasional nap in a toilet cubicle in my teenage years but lately I have been chronically drowsy to the point of zombie in a pub […]
