“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 do that all the time. I’ve heard people say (and I’ve even thought it myself) that… Continue reading “What Are You Doing With Yourself??

There’s a thousand ‘yous’ (There’s only one of me)

You have an idea of who you are. It’s the most intimate version of who you are, the most detailed one. It has all the micro-details, good and bad, that make up you. All the flaws that are hidden from everyone else. All the strange idiosyncrasies, all the glitches and gestures that make you, you.… Continue reading There’s a thousand ‘yous’ (There’s only one of me)

good kid, f.a.i.r city: 9 months in Dubland

I haven’t really lived in Dublin that long. It kinda feels like I only moved up a couple of weeks ago, and now I’m two days from moving home. It definitely went way too quick. Sometimes you can be so focused on the future, on what’s coming next, on the next step, that you can… Continue reading good kid, f.a.i.r city: 9 months in Dubland

A Light in the Dark: Talk About Suicide

I write about suicide a lot. You’ve probably noticed this. I purposely bring it up. I talk about it a lot, I write about it. I make it a topic to talk about. There’s a reason.

Stress, Overthinking, & Computer Back-ups

It was a Tuesday. I wasn’t feeling great, my throat and chest were at me, the bastards. 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. How… Continue reading Stress, Overthinking, & Computer Back-ups

‘There’s Nothing Wrong, I’m Just in a Bad Mood’

Recently I’ve been thinking about how easy it is to fall into a rut or bad mood, and how suddenly you might realize you’ve been in shit form for like 3 or 4 days. I was wondering why it happens though. Like, why can any of us be in a generally terrible mood for a… Continue reading ‘There’s Nothing Wrong, I’m Just in a Bad Mood’

‘I Don’t Want A Relationship’

I always say I don’t want a relationship. I don’t want a relationship. I don’t want one. I’m too young. There’s no point. Yeah, cool. I’ve been saying that since I was 17, it doesn’t cut it anymore. There’s a common reason for why people choose to be on their own, whether they admit it… Continue reading ‘I Don’t Want A Relationship’
