Here Comes Friday With A Script I Haven’t Seen.

I can count the friends I have on one hand. One of them I already mentioned here when I wrote earlier in the week about feeling unable to share my blog with those closest to me. Actually, as the weekend rises before us, I'd like to say thank you for the reaction that that post … Continue reading Here Comes Friday With A Script I Haven’t Seen.

Five Of My Thoughts.

Living between my tiny Irish village and the metropolis of Paris for the last month means that my running has been a bit scattered, something which gets to me. I am a Virgo after all and we are all about that routine. This morning I slid my feet into my shoes, determined to get out … Continue reading Five Of My Thoughts.

Why Have I Kept My Blog A Secret From My Friends and Family?

Is it because of that old bugbear rejection? Is it easier to share it here because the blogosphere seems safer and I can remain as anonymous or not as I wish to be? Is it because I've planned to write about those people I know and don't want to run into trouble with them later on down the line?!

If Someone Offered You The Chance To Remain In Your Twenties Eternally, Would You Take It?

Something a bit different from me today as I attempt to diversify my blog and keep people on their metaphorical toes. Or your actual toes should you find my writing that riveting. A friend of mine once reacted in disbelief when I said that I would seriously consider Botox for the inevitable forthcoming wrinkles. I'm … Continue reading If Someone Offered You The Chance To Remain In Your Twenties Eternally, Would You Take It?

(Not Sponsored) The Radio Show That Inadvertently Cures My Homesickness.

I'm listening to it right now... My first night in Barcelona in 2013 was a tough one. I'd watched my parents round a corner and disappear knowing that I wouldn't see them again for at least another four months. I had just graduated and was alone for the first time: no friends, no partner, no … Continue reading (Not Sponsored) The Radio Show That Inadvertently Cures My Homesickness.
