Soo.. What’s up?

Yeah so it’s been what… 7 months? Not gonna lie I kiiiiinda fell off the blogging scene. And the simple reason for that is that as soon as I wrote my last one, life went crazy! Moved to Dublin, started life in a new place, a new college, a new course and with new people. SCARY! :O

But I regret nothing 😀 it’s been seriously awesome! This course at the moment is challenging as hell and right about now I want to pull my hair out over the assignments I have due. But still, I love it! Because it challenges me and opens my eyes to so many issues we have in the world today. This semester I have chosen to study Political Terrorism and Human Rights Law and it’s a huge workload. But it’s helped me see that when I leave college, I want to help people. And hopefully travel one day and see the world. That’d be swell. 

But for now I’m going on lots of short breaks! I went to Budapest (which is in Hungary) last February which was so beautiful. I’m going to Croatia in June with my parents and Amsterdam in July with my boyfriend! So it’s going to be an exciting year to say the least! In the mean time whilst I’m off seeing these places I’ll also be writing my thesis. Hopefully the college I’m in will actually like it and let me graduate! 😀 Masters Degree baby woooo!

Right now I’m having some writers block and I figured writing this would help me get typing something at least. Anyway, Ima go and bang my head against the table a little bit more. 🙂 promise I’ll write soon!

Adios guys. Stay classy xo

Writer’s Block

I thought I’d write about something that is really starting to get on my nerves. The irony of writing about writer’s block…

I have an essay due this week. It is actually due today but I am ill and have been granted an extension. But for some profound reason, nothing is coming into my head to write! Instead I find myself tweeting (yes I know!), looking up Adult Education classes for my Dad to do and writing a blog to all you lovely people. Even on Sunday when I tried to write, I ended up making a cheesecake.. Procrastination at it’s best.

I have worked out the reason why though, well two reasons.

1) I’m sick. It really doesn’t help.

2) I actually hate this assignment. It’s boring and I don’t enjoy it. Trying to write on something you don’t enjoy is so tedious.

Although you could argue if you do it now, it’s out of the way and you won’t to face another Irish Studies essay again. But I don’t want to rush it and get an awful mark. Although I did enjoy reading the book (Kate O’Briens The Land of Spices), writing about the temporalities and possibilities of female-development is  another matter. I’ve only got one month of college left though. I’d better just crack on with it.. Goodbye Kate O’Brien and your feminist literature!Image
