      The Iberian Peninsula probably isn't the worst place to be at in Western Europe at the moment. I think I would rather be in Switzerland personally though.

      Spain was my only main choice for working abroad in my degree so I was happy to taken the offer, better then being sent off to Donegal with no pay and having to find my own accomdation while trying to afford it, so when I got the offer to teach English through sports with it being payed work, free accomdation and free food for the week on the beatiful coasts of Spain I was more then happy to accept 🤣

  3. Been stuck doing a Geography Assignment and I decided to do it on Scotland, specifically the beautiful Isle of Skye, and I don't know if it's the late night (3:34am) or the stress of this essay but I really miss it, it's like I'm forever lured to it, anyway got me a wee bit emotional 🤷‍♂️

      Something tells me that you had another unstated reason for desiring a trek through the terrain of the 'Dark Continent'. Nothing wrong with that. I have always been intrigued by the fact that it is a veritable land that time forgot.

  5. Saw The Cure last night and wow was it amazing!

      The Cure...as in...this Cure?

      That's completely understandable!, even just sharing the link and spreading the awareness is amazing help to the cause! :D

      Oh ok. I could still c&p the link on my facebook. I've got friends that have incomes I'm always jealous of. lol

      Posted on facebook, but I don't have an overabundance of friends so it might be hit or miss. I tried though. ^^

  8. There's moments where I'm always active on this forum and then other times I'm just lurking. 

  9. I started back at college and have been really enjoying it, but my job has been making everything difficult and for some reason I just cant seem to get out of it. 

  10. Trying to find a place to stay in Edinburgh for 3 days in September on a tight budget is very difficult. 

  11. got a call back for a job in a pizza place at last I finally thought I might have a job, they asked for me to bring my girlfriend with me because she's also looking for work (but never applied inside the pizza place), we got there and I basically got told they were only looking for female staff because they look better on the till so they had work for my girlfriend but not me. Pretty sure that's illegal here but okay.

      the hiring females only doesnt give me bad vibes
      but the way they instigated it in this situation to me is raising a lot of flags

      firstly they let you apply ~ if they only want females why let you apply
      then ring you in to get to a person who hasnt applied ~what arnt they getting enough females apply
      or is the trun over of staff high for some reason , but at the same time its like they are relying on the fact your there she gets job so wont leave due to not wanting to seem bad for you

    3. Metro

      Turn over in staff is high in places like that, and over here we have a law saying it's illegal to hire someone based of gender so I could technically report all the places 🤣

    4. Wodahs

      Wodahs

      do these places employ any males ? as long as they are hiring males they can hire females for certain jobs
      it can be hard to prove they are being gender bias or discriminating in some circumstances
      we also have laws like this but a male still couldnt get a job at a womans only gym and other such places

  12. I've put my CV into 12 places that have been "urgently looking for staff" 0 of them got back to me but continue to post about needing staff....

      That's really odd then. So many cafes and restaurants got rid of their staff during the lockdowns that you'd think they'd be eager to employ people who answer their adverts.

      Sometimes the opposite can be true, not sure your age or experience but often especially with temporary summer work they are looking for young people. Who they can pay a much lower 'minimum' wage and who they will finish by the end of the season. If your older you'd get a higher minimum wage, or might be over qualified for the position.

      that's the annoying part tbh, in Ireland, being 19 means they can still pay me just under the minimum wage, and as I'm only going into my second year of my degree I have no qualifications in anything other then coaching stuff so I really don't understand why absolutely nowhere as contacted back. suppose I'll just have to throw it into everywhere else and hope I have something by the start of July

  13. Hiya everyone, I'm back!!

  14. I've been at 625 posts for over 10+ posts now, I'm guessing short posts don't count 🤣

  15. Past my driver theory test today being I can start learning to actually drive!
    Have to wait 6 months before being able to do the proper driver test and have to do 12 lessons within this period so better get cracking.

  17. A fellow Taiga appreciator..... I respect that. 😌🙏

  18. My sudden surge of posts here after years of maybe an average of 10 posts per month has been due to the determination to procrastinate my assignment 🤣, but I must admit I've been really enjoying being properly active again! :D 

  19. 19 points on a sprained ankle, happy enough with the result but regretting playing the whole game with this pain >.<

  20. So I'm basically finished my first year of University, and what a year it has been! 

    Still have like 4 assignments to do though... >.<

      @Metro Congratulations 🎉 

      @Wodahs when you started that joke I actually thought you were going for this quote: “ Back where I come from, we have universities, seats of great learning, where men go to become great thinkers. And when they come out, they think deep thoughts and with no more brains than you have. But they have one thing you haven't got: a diploma." - The Wizard of Oz

      Best of luck with the assignments. I wasn't bright enough to go to uni, but I still had to do various job related training courses when I started work.

      ah yes @Ohayotaku the wizard of oz

      we have a chain of shops here that sell alcohol called "thirsty camel" and their radio add's usually have a "dad joke" and this scarecrow was one of the add's jokes

  21. So, I randomly got back into anime out of nowhere! After not watching it for a long time and only watching a few movies now and again, I've decided to start watching new ones and rewatching SAO! 

    1. Ohayotaku

      Ohayotaku

      So what show got you interested again, if you don’t mind me asking?

    2. Metro

      Metro

      Well I was just flicking through Netflix trying to find something to stick on when I noticed SAO was there and it just made me remember how much I loved it when I watched it years ago, decided to stick it on and then decided to log back into Crunchyroll and saw "shikimori is not just a cutie" and decided to watch that! 

  22. First semester done of University and finally on a well needed Christmas break. 

  23. I got into my dream University!!

  24. Waiting for my University offers and I must admit I've been up all night while my stomach is in knots, absolutely stressful times.
