Update

Hey guys. Long time no see. I know I haven’t posted anything since January. Whoops, sorry about that. I was pretty busy during my last semester of my Undergrad. But it’s all over now. Finished my undergrad. Scary stuff. I’m getting my results in June so we’ll see how I go. I hope I can hold on to my 1st Class Honours Degree because it would look prestigious on my CV and certificate.

4th Year of University

Hey guys, I just thought I’d give you a little update of where I’m at at the moment. I’m starting my last year of college tomorrow, which is hard to believe. Those 4 years flew! My birthday is also tomorrow so it’s a weird culmination of events (also can’t believe I’m 22 tomorrow! :O ).

Anyway, I’ll be quite busy over the next few months with college work and my Final Year Project so unfortunately I won’t be able to blog as much. I’ll try to post something every once in a while but I’m not making any promises. If I don’t post anything sorry in advance! But you’ll definitely hear from me towards the end of December with my yearly review posts:

  • Top Songs of The Year.
  • 2015 Book Reviews.
  • 2nd Wolf Awards.

Good luck with everything guys! See you soon. 🙂

Same Sex Marriage In Ireland

Source: Headstuff

As I’m sure you all know already, the referendum for same sex marriage in Ireland passed on Saturday 23rd of May 2015. It was such a momentous occasion and a great feeling of elation spread through the country.

I was so happy, not only for myself but for the thousands of LGBT individuals throughout the country (and world), as well as their friends and families. It was such a long and difficult campaign, and emotions were high throughout. But I’m so proud of the result and I’m glad that I was alive to see and be part of an historic occasion. It really felt like we changed history, and I’m so proud to be Irish because of what we as a nation accomplished. Not only do we become one of the countries that allows same sex marriage, but we are the first country to establish same sex marriage by popular vote!

I was following the results throughout the day as each constituency gave their results. The Yes side won with a whopping 1,201,607 votes (62.07%). All but 1 constituency (of 43) voted in favour of same sex marriage. That constituency was Roscommon-South Leitrim which is a rural area. There was some negativity about them being the only one not to vote in favour of it but in fairness it was only by a 3% margin so there was still great support for it in that area.

When I watched the results coming in I was so teary eyed because it was so great to see people standing up for equality and human rights. The scenes in Dublin were just amazing to see. I went out that night with some of my friends to celebrate and it was a great feeling to just enjoy the momentous event. A brilliant occasion to witness and be part of.

My Wisdom Tooth

A few months ago I was complaining about how my wisdom tooth was causing me pain. Well after a few days the pain died down so I just said I’d leave it. I mean I did go to my dentist to get X-rays, and basically my wisdom teeth are growing horizontally to my other teeth and their pushing against them. It looks so sore (and worse than the picture above! :L ) I’m on a long waiting list to get it pulled out in the University Hospital Limerick (that way I get if for free, or at least a VERY reduced price).

Anyway, so it’s flaring up again and the pain… It’s not even my gum, it’s my jaw. I can’t open it wide. I mean I can open it enough to eat, drink and clean my teeth, etc. But if I want to yawn, there’s no way I can stretch my mouth because it’s way too sore. Hopefully it either fades or I can get it pulled out in the hospital. I just have to deal with it for the moment! 😛
