To The Girl Who’s Always One Step Ahead

There’s one thing I’ve always wanted to say to you- how do you do it? How do you manage to be a better version of myself? You have the same interests, hobbies, career goals as me, yet you’re always that little bit ahead of me. How?

Feminism Fridays: Am I Still A Feminist?

Guess who’s back. Back again. The renegade master! Bet that went a different direction than y’all were expecting. *cough* Anyway. Apologies for the absence. My raging social life got in the way. It won’t happen again, I promise.

Run, Joey, Run

How great is that, as women, we are lucky enough to have one day every four years to convert traditional relationship structures? Today is Feburary 29th, which makes 2016 a leap year. But more importantly, today is the only day that women are allowed to propose to men. But actually, thinking about, one day every four years seems a bit greedy. Wouldn’t want the patriarchy to get the wrong idea, now would we?

A Gentle Reminder

The subject of consent is not one that is touched upon greatly in the Irish education system. Mainly because to broach the topic of consent, is to talk about sex. So, let me rephrase that. Sex is not touched upon greatly in the Irish education system, unless you count an incredibly awkward and scarring video you watch in Sixth class, followed by a very brief and equally awkward overview of contraception about five years later, and about five years too late.

It’s hard to believe that in a few months time, I will be doing the one thing I have been thinking about, waiting for and basically freaking out about for the last four years. It’s been on my bucket list for a while now, but like much of the other items on my bucket list (Zac Efron I’m looking at you), I thought it wildly unlikely.

Security Blanket With No Questions Asked

Growing up in a non-secular country like Ireland, religion was something you grew up with, no matter your own personal beliefs. I went to a Protestant primary school as a Catholic, and I was met with a double-whammy of religion lessons, as I had to stay back once a week to complete the necessary learning and lessons from a religion teacher in the neighbouring Catholic school that qualified me to put on a mini wedding dress and eat some dry wafer.

Swipe Left To Tinder

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, a phenomenon that goes by the name of Tinder has come in, downloaded itself onto almost all of our phones and taken over the dating game. Gone are the days when you would actually venture outside your bed and go out to meet someone, because, well, that requires effort. Continue reading “Swipe Left To Tinder”
