Irish Begrudgery

Begrudgery is something that comes naturally to us Irish people. For some reason we find it incredibly difficult to be happy for anyone else’s success. We’re known as the ‘generous’ nationality, but when it comes to being happy for anyone else, we’re the very opposite of generous. I’m not entirely sure what it is. You’d… Continue reading Irish Begrudgery

I Don’t Care if You’re Offended

I’m sick to death of how snowflake-y, and offended the entire world is. I’m sick of it. What’s the story with everyone getting angry at everyone else for having different opinions? If you’re a vegan, you’re an elitist cuck. If you eat meat you’re a murderer. If you’re gay there’s ‘something wrong with you’. If… Continue reading I Don’t Care if You’re Offended

“What Are You Doing With Yourself??

Do you ever do that thing where you see someone you know coming towards you on the street, but you pretend you’re busy texting or looking for some restaurant/cafe so that you don’t have to stop and talk?

I was still pretty tired from the Stag the weekend before, but I was sitting down to be productive, get some work done. This was the beginning of the most stressful period of my Masters so far.

**POETRY ALERT** I'll be honest, I can't remember when I wrote this. Seems pretty dope though so give it a lash. Pure artistic and trippy. If you worship the ground I walk on it makes it difficult for me to know where to step next. This overwhelming admiration makes it hard for me to be… Continue reading Tell Me I’m Amazing

New Year, New Bullshit

Things Numpties say on January 1st: ‘New Year New Me’ ‘Absolutely smashed my goals in 2017 and am ready to take on 2018, bring it on!’ ‘2018 is my year, wait and see #Haters’ ‘I didn’t lose a lot of friends in 2017, I just found out who the real ones are, onwards and upwards… Continue reading New Year, New Bullshit

Why it’s Awkward to be a Straight Guy Right Now

It's kind of uncomfortable to be a straight guy right now. There’s a weird sentence. It’s also a very true sentence. In fairness, we’re not being represented in the media very well of late, with countless celebs being unmasked as abusers, perverts, and just generally being assholes. But their behaviour doesn’t represent my behaviour, or… Continue reading Why it’s Awkward to be a Straight Guy Right Now

Festivals Abroad: The Pros and Cons

Festivals are absolutely incredible. At festivals you can find all walks of life, in any circumstances at any time. If you're from Ireland at a festival, you're almost guaranteed to find someone you know from home too. In my abundant, 5 whole years of adult life, I've gotten around to a few. I've gotten to… Continue reading Festivals Abroad: The Pros and Cons
