Failures and Faux Pas

Hello, you!   I turned 21 a few weeks ago – you probably know this if you’re either in my life personally or follow me on Instagram because I have NOT STOPPED banging on about it. I do apologise, but I’m big on celebrating! I’m sure the photo below shows how much I DO NOT SHY AWAY from birthdays. Lots of my friends at uni thought this was a serious look, as in I actually went out thinking ‘hell yeah, I’m gonna be fighting off the lads tonight – WATCH OUT, RYAN’ – but clearly, I was (as I regularly do) taking the piss out of myself.     As I’ve reached the final, big milestone birthday before 30, I thought it would be fun to share some of my adult failures with you. These are some of the small (and sometimes hugely embarrassing) faux pas I’ve made since I turned 18… That is, I was definitely old enough to know better. I’d like to add a disclaimer now, to try and retain at least SOME dignity, and say that these are not an accurate representation of my intelligence (I hope), and with that, AWAY WE GO!   I used… View Post

Mondays are for Celebrating

Hello, you!   Today I was reunited with my best friend Leila – one of the most positive and sunny natured people I know. We were both super excited see each other after a fair while apart so we decided to continue our long standing tradition of eating a double cheeseburger and playing absolute TUNES… Us singing together in the car rapidly escalated to us blasting out the songs and singing to strangers passing by, lucky them! We had SO much fun, call us sad if you wish but you can get a lot of happiness from driving round with happy songs playing at full volume, singing at the top of your voice – especially when the sun is shining. It was so entertaining that we ended up doing it for around THREE hours, driving allllll over the city and into different car parks. By the end of it, we had experienced a full range of reactions… The most common reaction we had was people smiling or laughing at us, we massively enjoyed this, it’s nice to think you’ve made someone smile even a little bit, isn’t it? As for the laughing, we will gladly be the laughing stock so… View Post

Drive? Drive.

Hello, you!   It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Big, big thank you to every single one of you who have asked when I’m writing my next post, you truly have made my day by doing that and you’re the reason I started typing this. To be honest with ya, I’ve felt pretty, bloody uninspired these past couple of weeks and felt very ‘urgh’ about things and as such, have been on many a ‘clear my head’ drive – which leads me onto the topic of this post, crazy how these things happen, ay?;) I think there’s a lot to be said about the beauty of cars. Not in the ‘get me an Audi R8’ and ‘wow, what a brilliant engine’ kind of way, but in a ‘nothing cheers me up quite like driving around singing at the top of my voice’ type of way. Even when I’m in the best mood, I find it can always be improved by good music and a decent drive. On good days, I can be seen with the windows down (weather permitting, of course), blasting out songs like ‘One More Time’ – Daft Punk and ‘Galway Girl’ – not the Ed Sheeran tune but… View Post
