This Is My Why – Liberty For All

Why are you breathing? Apart from the obvious biological answers, do you know why you are alive? I didn’t for a long time. I was ignorant. The first time I ever thought about why I was alive was when my dad called me to his office (now my room) for me to watch the TED …

The day before I flew home, I chose to attempt the National Library and museum again, having discovered they were closed on Monday. All week I was excited for the Library visit, to walk through its shelves and run my fingers along the books before choosing a great tome to study, even if for just …

The Dublin Dispatches – Day One

When I wrote this first dispatch, I sat in Hard Rock Café in Dublin, waiting for my chicken and mojito. It was delicious, although the Mojito could have been stronger.

Have A Target And Stick To It!

On many things I stay true to the title of this post. I set myself a target and follow it through to its conclusion. However there is one area where I constantly fail. My fitness and healthy diet. Since I was 18 I have slowly got less active and heavier. This has been down to …
