On average, humans are said to spend a total of 5 years and 4 months of their lives on social media. To put that into perspective, we could fly to the moon and back 32 times, or watch the entire Simpsons series 215 times in the amount of time that we will spend on social media… a depressing thought really. Who is using it and why can vary, but demographics show a definite leaning towards young adults and businessmen of the western world as the most avid users. Yet while it hosts an ocean of perks to explore, social media is also insidiously dominating our lives. Think you need to […]

Young happy amorous couple celebrating with red wine at restaurant

To have sex on the first date or to not have sex on the first date? You know when you’re dancing with your date or enjoying a nice glass of wine with them and then suddenly the all important question comes up, “Hey, so you wanna go back to mine later?” It hits like a ton of bricks and you begin to sweat and you can hear your heartbeat in your ears, what are you going to say? What are you going to do? Should you make a run for it? The bus stop isn’t that far, but wait, you haven’t ran since secondary school and there’s just so many thoughts […]

We have all had our fair share of good and bad relationships, whether you seem to be the problem or they are. Now, you have finally managed to land yourself in another relationship and it isn’t going great, but it isn’t going bad either. However, there are some obvious reasons your relationship is failing. So, I’m here to help you figure it out and hopefully let you see some of the more obvious warning signs. Being Clingy Firstly, you’re too clingy. We’re all guilty of this, we have all carried on messaging our significant others (known as ‘SO’ from here) on a night out with their friends. It’s not cute anymore […]

ice cream at the beach

We all love those rare days that the sun pokes its head out and gives the people of Ireland reason to walk around topless, eat 99s and drink cans in public places in such large numbers that the guards have no answer for it. And where better to do it than on one of the best beaches in Ireland. We decided to dig into it and get a list of the best beaches around the country that you should consider visiting. Unlikely you’ll see them all considering we only get 8 sunny says each summer and we’ve listed 12 wonderful beaches to see. So lets get into it. Here is […]

The booming bass and entrancing, repetitive lyrics, drowns out the clink of shot glasses. Somewhere out there, in a reserved and unwelcoming realm known as reality, the church bell rings to signify the passing of one hour from midnight. Blurred vision, sticky hands, sticky floor, ringing ears. Small-talk with old friends, who are now acquaintances, soon to be strangers – “you’re out for the night, are ye?” Hands in the air, head back, the crowd becomes one with the music. One hundred different sprays of male and female perfumes hangs in the air like a perfect smog. If only there was a way of bottling this feeling. “I fucking love […]
