so what do you want to be when you grow up?


I always remember this question being asked to me when  i was a wee snapper and i didnt know any better.  Hmm i want to be a vet i would say with a big smile on my face and look after all the sick animals and take care of them.  Now this question was asked when i was 8 years old so i am going to forward a few years to when i was 14 and in school.  So what would you like to be when you leave school.  My guidance counsellor would say to me every little while or so.   So i always went back to my excited 8 year answer and say with a smile on my face i want to be a vet.  Now you know that being a vet will take years of training and you will need to great marks on your exams and work very hard.  So with that i left my guidance counsellor with more questions than answers to  satisfy me in any way. Gosh i said to myself hmm lots of exams and studying to do so i can get my dream job.  hmm i think not i said to myself one day.  Sadly my dreams of becoming a vet never came true.  So by chance i decided to go into computers and with that i have never looked back.

i unfortunately left school at an early age so i decided to do a fas course on computers it was a great thing to do and i have to say i also got my junior cert leaving cert and a few other courses under my belt to help me through life and for that i am grateful.  i also got the chance to go back to school and do my leaving certs in which i did very well so i am well pleased with that.  I do actually still do computers now and i like it.  I am currently doing a desktop publishing and web design course.  Which i find enjoyable.  I am currently working on a web page at the present moment and its going pretty good.

I also decided to do a course in bar management which i really like.  You see running a bar is quite interesting for me believe or not but like every job it has its ups and down like a roller coaster.  I think with working in the bar trade i have met the most interesting of people from many different parts of the world and its also a great way of learning about the world we live in how it works and how do deal with unforturnute situations that life tends to throw at us.  i cant really find fault in the job that i am in but at the same time i am grateful that i have a job in the times of a resession coming on to us.


Unfortunately i was given bad news last week that my restaurant that i work in is not going well and to say the least i am a bit worried so i thank god in a way that i have carved out a career in computers oh god how i thank my lucky stars.  So my plan is to work in the restaurant to see the Christmas through and to see what the new year brings me in 2009.  god only knows that 2008 was a really bad year for me but that’s for a another blog at another time. 

By the way the oasis song i put on i was jsut humming to myself while i wrote this blog no other special reason 🙂


Thanks all and i hope that you enjoy this blog.

all i want for christmas

hi everyone

Hope your all well and happy.  I have had a few good days but today wasnt so good.  I went shopping for my mum i was instructed to get xmas presents so i thought this is grand this should be easy.  So i wrapped up warm put on my new gloves and scarf and of course a nice warm coat and headed in to my town to get my shopping down.  this is going to be so easy or so i thought.

I dont whether people had it in for me today but every shop i want to they were playing xmas songs so i bet your all thinking well vicks it is xmas after all and everyone likes xmas songs.  \now dont get me wrong i love my xmas songs i was even rocking out to jingle bell rock the other day at home.  Thats one of my favourite xams songs ever but as soon as i headed into dunnes that they decided to play mariah carey all i want for christmas.  Oh god i how i hate this song i dont know what is worst herself prancing around in a little santa suit or hitting the high notes that only dogs can hear.  as soon as i heard this song i was like oh shite right i was scanning for the nearset exit in dunnes grr how i hate this song.


thankfully i had all my business done in dunnes and with that i breathed a sigh of relief and got my pressy shopping done for mum.  So i decided than to garb a coffee in a coffee shop so as soon as i popped my head in the door guess who is hitting the doggy notes again you guessed it MC herself again.  As soon as the song came on i just had to head out the door what made things worse was a waitress came over to me would you like anything to drink?  I just gave her a hassled look and said something along the lines ooh my phone just rang and i had to take this call.


No offense to anyone but i hate mariah carey shes such a dope and a poddle hair wearing idiot does this woman have talent?   I think not although the lads might say well she does have a great ahem rack on her.  I mean jesus lads i have weird crushes in my time but her shes a minger.  although i did go through a phase of late having a thing for the hamster richard hammond form the fast show  which i will say is cute in a strange way but hey thats me.

So i am just going to say this all i want for christmas is for bloody mariah carey to stop singing that bloody f%&%ing song.  failing that i would not say no to having either Hugh Jackman wearing nothing but a smile sitting at the end of my bed at xmas morning or it would be so lovely if he was here right now hmm i girl can dream.


But i will leave you with this note i totally love this song by the pretenders 2000 miles in my view its one of the best xmas songs ever and it always puts a smile of my face.


Oh happy days
