National Volunteer Week

So this week is National Volunteering Week, proudly supported by the very lovely Garnier of course.

It's the one week of the year when Volunteer Ireland and all the other groups who depend so much on volunteers encourage peeps to give volunteering a try, so that everyone can learn that volunteering can make a big difference whilst being fun! 

Volunteering is something I've always done. From a young age in school it was simply something you did. The majority of the skills I use daily in sales were formed arranging school fundraisers rather than learning the square root of pie (which is really only asked for in pub quizzes). We should all be forced to do it!

The past few years I have been volunteering purely for Phoenix FM a community radio station in Dublin 15. Moving from Limerick to Dublin many moons ago always left me feeling a bit homeless or disconnected. I didn't know my neighbours or the history of my area but joining Phoenix FM changed all that. Sure the basic geography of Dublin 15 still boggles my mind but I've a lot more friends and potential pet sitters.

Donal for example who I used to regularly co present Artistic License with is a living legend while Chris Hitchcock has more on air talent than half of RTE. Our chairman has more passion and drive than the cabinet. And so on and so forth.

They are always looking for volunteers and are happy to show you the ropes or find a suitable role. Check out for deets just don't say I sent you! Not in D15 than check out for your local station.

Blast from the Past - Andrea Nicole

Came across a lady from my past this week. The lovely Andy lived in the apartment next door while I studied Radio in IADT.

She was always crazy talented though a bit shy so it's a great to see in the past ten years she's been following her passion. She's been to the Grammy's and even written with Chris Brown according to the rumour mill.

Basically the kind of overachiever you don't want to run into at your ten year reunion. Fingers crossed this single gets the support it deserves.

New Book?

My boyfriend Chris has a theory that I'm only happy when I'm reading a book. I'm in his view a great reader however this rings a little bit of "She is a great reader, and has no pleasure in anything else" too me.
Today I start another series of books intend on racing through them in one gulp. I'll let you know how I get on.

Doctor! Doctor!

I am unhealthy! Hence I am sick.

Currently I am on my third viral infection since Christmas. This time to keep things fresh I also have conjunctivtis. (Yes - such a classy disease!) Previous to this there was an unexplained period where I had chest pain and an inablity to breathe which involved a faux blood clot and a lot of conspiracy theories I am "anxious". How can you not be anxious when you can't breathe? Silly doctors.

The big question is why? What is it about my lifestyle that's making me as weak as a kitten?

I've never done drugs (hmmm...codeine) I don't smoke? I'm not a big drinker? I ran a 10k last year ( was more of a struggle than a run) and my boyfriend is vegetarian surely meaning I get plenty veg.

Loads of people burn the candle at both ends 247 yet are bright eyed and bushy tailed at work while I am pus eyed and barely albe to speak I'm so tired.

And then there is that class of superhumans - those people who when they are suffering from a terrible cold just miss the gym? I don't think I can ever reach their level?

So what do I have to do to be healthy? I don't think I've the energy? Hence the vicious circle?

I think I'll start with chicken noodle soup, vicks, benylin and bed. The rest will have to wait.

Gonna get my shite together I guess now I'm 28

So for my 28th year on the planet I want to set some ground rulez.
1. I need to blog more... and hopefully that'll be a gateway drug to more writing. I love to write. I know I don't have any mad skills - in fact people generally don't understand anything I write down my grammar and spellings are so bad but hey I haven't a fuckin' clue what Joyce is talking about!
2.Recharge my batteries - I haven't this one figured out just yet but it'd definitely gonna involve sun, and alone time. I find it IMPOSSIBLE to relax so I need to find a solution before I have to be a hermit cat lady.

3. Sort out my hair. That cut - that colour.

That's it so far! Look out for part two soon.

It's my Birthday!

Today I turned 28. I hate birthdays. Thank you though Darren Criss.
