I read an article in (admittedly my least favourite newspaper) the Irish Daily Mail this morning that dealt with an apparently controversial issue…
Huzza! Exams are over, the sun is out and if you’re anything like me you’ve already cracked out the shorts and you’ve started getting your tan on. If you’re not the brightest bulb in the box, don’t fret, I’m here to divulge the dos and don’ts to ensure you have the optimum summer fun.
Women, contrary to common conception are actually quite simple creatures. We have our quirks, it’s true. But in most cases, thought not all, the feminine mystique can be broken down into a few simple categories. 1. Cute Things. There isn’t a woman in the world who can’t be reduced to a blubbering ball of mush by any kind of baby animal. The smaller and cuter the better. Oddly enough, the same can’t be said when it comes to babies of our own species. What that says about the future of [...]
We’ve all seen the film, some of us watching it just to see Matthew McConaughy topless (“it happens in all of his films, it was bound to turn up here”). But, some of us may have taken a little more from the film than others. Some women find themselves in Andie’s situation time and time again. ‘How do I get rid of this guy without telling him I want out?!’ Well wonder no more, ladies. This is how you really lose a guy in ten days. WARNING: These tips may [...]
Breaking up is hard to do. Whether you’re the receiver, or the one doing the breaking up, you need your ‘mourning’ period. There are a number of ways we choose to do this: some girls turn to the more reliable men in their lives – Ben & Jerry; some girls and boys go on the rebound; some resort to bad-mouthing their ex – from their shoes to their mother. But for others, the mourning period involves blocking out the outside world, sticking on the iPod or heading to YouTube and [...]
Boys. Cant live with them, can’t bury them in the back garden without the neighbours noticing. The world is roughly a 50/50 split between the genders but both remain a complete mystery to each other. I have braved this patriarchal world and come into contact with the male gender on a regular basis, along with living with two choice specimens who are otherwise known as brothers. From the covert research I have conducted along with some anonymous interviews this blog is the fruit of my findings. It seems the male species is [...]
I enjoy a good argument. When reading that, you may picture me as a tweed-clad grandmother, shaking my Zimmer frame at sugar induced shrieking children. The truth is, when I believe something is right, I become passionate about it – I feel that my point should be heard and understood. My Zimmer frame is only used in extreme circumstances. There are those, when arguing, whose minds will broaden: digesting events, analysing words, evaluating situations and contemplating outcomes. They will explain, discuss, reason, and dissect. And then there are men. When [...]
It may come as a surprise to you, but we here at Studenty aren’t actually specimens of human perfection. We are, in fact, students like yourself, (except me; I’m nearly sure I’m God’s gift to women…if God was to give raw animal magnetism in the shape of a man). And as fellow students, we want to help you out as much as we can. So what are the most important things you think about? Grades? The current economic climate? Global warming? World peace? No… It’s sex, isn’t it? It’s totally [...]
There are two types of people in this world: those who like company and those who don’t. Or at least it appears that way. There will always be that one person you know who claims that being alone is one of the best things since sliced bread. If it was bottled they’d sell it to you. If it was a drug they’d hook it to their single veins. You notice how they switch the word ‘lonely’ to ‘free,’ and ‘bored’? Huh, no, no; ‘relaxed.’ They casually let slip how amazing [...]
I love a good rom-com and I’m not ashamed to admit it! I probably should be, considering I’m doing a masters in film and television studies so my tastes are supposed to be more refined… But feck it: I love a good cheesy predictable rom-com where boy meets girl and they overcome all the inevitable obstacles to be together – sigh* However, real life is rarely like a romantic comedy and the lessons learned from these films are not normally useful. Having said that I must admit I have learnt [...]
