Check Out These Real Life Wonder Women

By theSharpeUser September 22, 2016 (No)
What do we think of when we think of a “wonder woman”? Models in a swim-suit? Maybe, and we can perfectly understand why that image or idea would come to mind. But our reality of expectation is changing. We’d think this is for the better. We want to live in a world where women are free to develop themselves, follow their own paths in life and strive to being who they want to become, or at least having the chance to give their dreams a shot. After all, it is not only the man who can have a dream. To show you this, we’ve compiled a list from around the world […]

Dream Jobs: Fact or Fantasy?

By theSharpeUser September 17, 2016 (No)
So you find yourself fantasising about your dream job once again. What are you envisioning? A job in a field that you’re interested in with a nice boss, friendly colleagues, a decent pay check and the weekends off. Sounds great but what if your boss gets replaced, you need to work additional hours independently or your wages get reduced? Will it remain your dream job or will these external factors knock off the initial gleam of your once glittering career choice? So, does the dream job exist? The majority of people will answer no to this question after a moment’s thought and there are a few reasons why. Firstly, if […]

What Is Considered Good Social Etiquette in 2016?

By theSharpeUser September 12, 2016 (No)
People are the worst, right? The only thing worse than people is new people but there are some unavoidable situations that call for social interaction. While the times are always changing, there are some timeless rules on how to act around people, here we will look at a few things to consider if you are socially interacting in 2016. DO: Let them know you will be late – on time If you are due to meet someone at 1 o’clock, a text at 12.59 to say you won’t be there on time is not necessary – they have that much figured out. As soon as you know that you’ll be […]

Being An Irish Hipster

By theSharpeUser August 25, 2016 (No)
Over the last number of years the hipster subculture has went from strength both in Ireland and across the world. In its simplest form the hipster is a person in their 20s or 30s that value independent thinking, counter culture, progressive politics, and an appreciation for art, indie-rock, creativity, intelligence and witty banter. Despite the common misconception that hipsters are layabouts that live off their parent’s money they are usually well educated and will have degrees in things such as the liberal arts or mathematics. Although “hipsterism” is really a state of mind it is usually intertwined with distinct fashion sensibilities. Thick rimmed glasses, tight fitting jeans and retro footwear […]

Five Thriller Movies To Watch

By theSharpeUser August 23, 2016 (No)
We’ve all got those movies that we absolutely love and force every person we know to love them too. We’ve also all got those movies that you think you’re the only person on the planet who hasn’t seen it (mine’s The Lion King). Here are five thriller movies that everybody needs to have watched. Shutter Island (2010) In my opinion, this is the daddy of them all. No movie has caught me by surprise at the death more than Shutter Island. The dream team of Scorsese and Di Caprio give this movie absolutely everything. A US Marshal travels to an isolated island asylum to assist in a missing person’s search […]

Fashion Faux Pas

By theSharpeUser August 22, 2016 (No)
Trends come and go, right now your clothes have to be as closely pinned to your skin as possible just so that people never ever have to use their imagination. But there was a time when it wasn’t so clear and easy. Here’s a few little throwbacks into the world of common fashion that will leave the younger generation scratching their head and throwing a confused glance at Mammy and Daddy wondering what were they possibly thinking.. Flares: Ok, so they weren’t all bright green but a lot of them could have been. They were huge around the hippy era of the 60s and early 70s and were most often […]

How To Pick The Perfect Smartwatch On A Budget

By theSharpeUser August 4, 2016 (No)
If you are in the market for a smart watch then you will probably have noticed that, like all products in this area they vary wildly in price. You can really spend what you want and as far as brands go then you are not lacking choice in this department either. With the usual suspects like Apple and Samsung in the mix and long standing watch makers such as Tag Heuer not wanting to miss out on the smart watch boom, you are not lacking choice if you are looking to invest. If you are looking to get a good watch at on a budget then look no further because […]

What To Do On A First Date

By theSharpeUser July 23, 2016 (No)
The first date has to be one of the most daunting tasks us as humans have to endure. No matter how many first dates you’ve been on you still feel the same as you did the first time. And it’s no surprise we get nervous each time as it’s a make or break deal with the other half you spend it with. This date could either be the first and last, or the first of many depending on what you do with it. So treat your first date like it’s your last and make the most of it. Let’s take a look at what you can do to turn that […]

The Benefits Of The Podcast

By theSharpeUser July 23, 2016 (No)
They’ve been discredited for being a waste of time on a number of occasions by people who just don’t recognise their purpose but podcasts are quite useful for people in the broadcasting or publishing worlds. Radio DJs, TV presenters and Journalists all spend their time searching and trying to find as much content as they can to fill their show or paper. If you don’t have time or space to utilise it all, a nice way to keep audience who would have been interested in that story is a podcast. It keeps people happy while also allows you to make use of all of your content which has no doubt […]
