New Job!

I was going to hold off on announcing this, but I am very excited to say that I will be joining Blacknight as part of their Support team starting mid-September.

The past year and a half has been a roller-coaster for me. It took me a while to get a job in the first place with the Pet Shop and I am very grateful to my boss Jamie-Lee for everything that her and the rest of the staff has given me over the past year.

Starting with just some communication skills and a computer knowledge, I joined the Pet Shop as part of JobBridge and then became full time from March and now here I am, joining a company that is not part of the JobBridge or some Government scheme…not going back on the dole and not going back to local college.


My confidence with customers has greatly improved, my social skills has increased, my customer service towards to customers and suppliers has been developed and I would not have got those skills without them. Thank you to Mary, Paul, Jamie-Lee and Brendan. It has been a huge honour working with you all :)

But now, as I am now going to be working at Blacknight, I will unfortunately have to leave Monaghan and move to Carlow which means that I will be moving out of the house and living away from my parents, which is very very weird to me…But I am 23, it’s time for me to grow up and move on with my life.

I am looking very forward to be joining the Blacknight team.

There is so much I want to say right now but my emotions are all over the place haha.

My day to Carlow

I don’t get out often but when I do, it’s never ever far. So today I went out of Monaghan today and took a trip to Carlow.

Never been before, but I certinely enjoyed it. Took a couple of photos from the beautiful park.




Would I come back? Most definitely. A lot bigger than Monaghan and more populated. It would be a ‘breath of fresh air’

So why did I come down? I had the opportunity to have a job interview with Blacknight. I won’t know for a week or 2 if I have got the job or not, but if I do, I will probably be moving to Carlow.

So, as I make this blog post, I am on the train back to Dublin with a big smile on my face and my future starting to build. Even if I don’t get the job, it will defiently make a lot more confident in my interview skills.

Right, let’s get back to Monaghan and let’s get back to my little Nologam community :)

Getting back in Anime

Something that I have always enjoyed doing but never having enough of time to do so is watching Anime.

I wouldn’t go out there and watch the Naruto’s or the One Piece or the big guys, I prefer the smaller 12-24 episode shows that are being shown. Another problem that I have had was that I would never bother to finish any series that I was watching. Yes, I have the whole series on my personal seedbox but it would just sit there and I would never watch it.

So, when I was out last weekend with a friend, we were talking about anime and he was saying that started to watch GATE and that it was a really good anime. I said to him that I would check it out…So I did.

At the time of writing, there has been 6 episodes aired and another 18 episodes to go. Over the next few days, I watched the 6 episodes of GATE and I bloody love it…to a point where I can’t wait till the next week to watch the next episode.

It seems like a weird thing. I prefer to wait a week for the next episode to release than binge watch the entire show in one sitting.

Funny how that works, eh?
