Three Little Things

Published by under Blog

I read an article the other day that suggested a few simple things that you can do to make yourself happier. One of them was to “count your blessings”. Literally! I’ve heard it before too that if, each day, you write down three things that are positive in your life it can improve your general outlook. So…

1. I am very fortunate to have a wonderful, supportive group of friends.

2. I love where I’m living. City centre life is great and my apartment is awesome (so too is my flatmate).

3. Well, look outside! How could you not smile with that heaving yellow ball beating its warmth down upon us. Yay!

That’s it. A short little post to bring me back to blogging. 🙂

Belfast, Nerdvana, Doctor Who And Titanic

Published by under Blog,Vlog

My first day and a half visiting Phil in Belfast was awesome. I debated, I walked a lot, I was surprised, I met a Doctor, I bounced around the nerd heaven that was the Heroes and LEGENDS (not Villains, as I say in the video) exhibition in W5 at the Odyssey and I saw the Titanic’s birth place.

Here’s me with Colin Baker. Thank you so much to the wonderful Phil for bringing me along.

Before Belfast And Some Thoughts About Being Broke

Published by under Blog,Vlog

Just a quick update before I head up to Belfast for a few days to see my boyfriend. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to update the vlog over the next couple of days but I’ll try. Anyone know of any good video editing apps for the iPhone?

I also talk about being broke and some of the things I would like to do (and will do) when I’m back working and have money again.

In today’s video, I play around with the Canon 550D for the first time. I’m not comfortable with it yet, but I’ll get there.

In the vid, I show off my new iPhone 4S, I rant about Daniel Craig as Bond and I send my brother Seán a birthday message. 🙂

Daniel Craig, Smash, Camille, Coughing And Pennywise The Clown

Published by under Blog,Vlog

Happy Groundhog Day, campers! This was supposed to be a very short vlog letting you know that I’ve got a few longer ones still to come.

However, I started talking about Daniel Craig, the US show Smash, my coughing fit, Camille O’Sullivan’s new album and Pennywise the Clown.

This is basically my philosophy for 2012. While I search for a job, I will not simply wait around in front of the TV.
