FOMO – cured?? With regret.

01. April 2015 life, seasonaire, Travel 0
I used to suffer dreadfully from severe FOMO (Fear of missing out). I would be that person who was on every night out, mixing with various circles of friends to ensure I went out every single evening & above all DID NOT MISS OUT ON ANYTHING!!! My most common nights out were the Thursday warm up, aprés ...

Copenhagen! Lausanne! Copenhagen! Lausanne! Damn…. I just can’t decide. This has been whirling through my head for days now. I pick one option & feel good about it, then ten minutes later I settle on the other. At this rate both options are going to expire by the time I decide. Either way, I know ...

You want a job? Here, have 2

My last few weeks have revolved around panic, stressing out & frantically searching for work. I was even contemplating booking a flight back to Ireland where any productivity into finding work is zero due to family, the cutest niece & nephews, an adorable wee dog who tugs on my heart strings (exacerbated by catholic guilt) & ...

My 10 great loves of tub life – An ode to bathing

19. March 2015 Travel 0
I bloody love a bath. When I was little I was less fussed. The most important thing about bathing was getting in before my brother so he didn’t wee in my bath water. If that was a parenting technique to get me into the bath quickly then I applaud my parents. That was highly effective. ...

What the hell am I doing with my life???!!

I need to sort out my life. http://i.giphy.com/13yTWxNez02T2o.gif I can’t continue doing what I’m doing now. There is never more than 3 months of job security before I have to start thinking about planning my next move – which we all know that I’m terrible at. The uncertainty is draining. As much as I love ...

Dear Switzerland, I miss you

I cannot wait to get back to Switzerland. I am super excited about learning to snowboard. I don’t have much time left until the end of the season & I feel like I’ve hardly spend any quality time with my friends. Literally, where has the season gone? It has went even faster this year than ...

My second ever ski resort

09. March 2015 Travel, Travelling 0
I’m on the move again. I’m nannying in another ski resort in France this week. I’m super excited about going to a different ski resort! Despite doing 3 ski seasons I have only ever stayed in 1 resort. Sadly, I’m a bit bummed that I can’t snowboard when I’m there because I’ll be working every day. I ...

Feck plans, lets travel!

http://i.giphy.com/leDgjatdaGyPK.gif Following my mild meltdown regarding what I’m doing for the next 6 months, I hopped on my laptop, updated my cvs (Yes, I have several) & started spamming potential employers. I made a list of countries I want to work & live in right now & countries I want to visit. I searched for jobs ...

I made time *sad face*

04. March 2015 health, Travel 2
In my last post I complained that my running resolution for March would be hindered because I had no time. All this week my schedule was jam packed with work, doing between 13-17 hour days daily. It looks like the universe accepted my wish to have more free time & lo & behold – Look! ...
