Diggin Days | Episode 14 – Turning 23 & Enchanted Lands Music Festival

So I turned 23 recently.


Let’s just say time flies when your having fun? I can’t believe time is going by so fast.
Sometimes people say your only as young as you feel. . .with me I don’t know if that’s a good thing most of the time…

I went to the cinema with my friends, one of my amazing besties Jerry & I went for a drive, and the girls & I went to ‘Enchanted Lands Music Festival’ which feature local tralee bands “Chapter 2” and “Q-14” and Ryan Sheridan himself. Good fun. And nice to have some live music around!

Just Once I’d Like To Stand Alone In A Community That’s Already Alone – Martin Mahon

Just Once was a series of short features for Radio Kerry produced by the students of Radio Kerry Training. It was an opportunity for people to say, do or feel something once.

Have you ever thought to yourself “If I could go back to that one moment I do it all differently” or “I wish just once people would see me differently” or “I wish I could sit and chat with them just once more”? These are all things that many of us have considered at one time or another. Through the ‘Just Once’ series Radio Kerry gave people the chance to fulfill that wish by simply saying it out loud, sometimes just taking a thought or a feeling and saying it out loud is enough.

August Daily Challenge : Daily Diary Entry (Few Days Late)

I always want to do a monthly challenge. To make the month a bit more interesting and fun.


I never dedicate myself enough too these challenges before the month begins (see title of this post..shocking) and I then ; never stick too it.  It’s often we decide to ‘Go Hard Or Go Home‘ and then… give up after a week. I do it. A lot.

I was looking up monthly challenges on thoughtbrick.com & there are some challenges I’ma do.

  • 12932792_1267668233247529_9108742274310361400_n

    2 Month’s eating 90 % Vegan Meals & Exercise 3 Times Weekly. Only lost 4 Pounds so obviously gained muscle/toned up which I never thought I could do.

    Go Vegan For A Month I have eaten an, I guess 90% vegan diet for a month or so earlier this year and I never felt better, I felt refreshed, light, energetic, stronger than I have in the last few years by a mile, I was able to go to the gym! I was a lot less bloated. I posted a pic of myself in a sports bra and I never thought that was going to happen again. I was mentally and physically motivated and got so much done everyday. That was my personal experience and one I wish to do again to feel better. Right now? I feel like a slug #SlugLife

  • Take A Photograph Of Your Food Every Day I am obsessed with pictures of food. Since the age of about 15? I remember taking pictures of dinners I made my dad. This would help me be more creative with my meals.
  • Text, Write, Message…People You Care About & Tell Them Why They’re Important To You Life is SHORT. I’m not the best at expressing myself in person, so that is why I text or write thing’s to people. No one want’s to see me freaking BLOGout while struggling to explain how I feel. (It’s a ridiculous mess I promise)
  • Create A Postcard Sized Piece Of Art Each Day & Have A Work Of Art To Display At The End Of The Month This would make an awesome little scrapbook to look back on. I’d pick a theme. Maybe Disney or animals. 
  • Think Of Your Worst Habit, You’ve Been Meaning To Ditch & Give It Up For 30 Days My worst habit? Truly caring about what people think of me. I am, who I am. So why should I worry if others don’t like me? “Not everyone can like you.” My sister once told me that. If I could give up caring for a whole month? Boy..I’d be proud.
  • Do An Hour Of Exercise A Day I love exercise. It helps my back and my daily pain caused by Fybromyalgia. I always do an hour a day because I love doing so and it is very good for my physical and mental health, I haven’t done any exercise at all in over a month due to pulling tendons in my ankle unfortunately and let me tell you. No exercise? Truly effects my mood & motivation. I have such little motivation and energy since I stopped exercising. It makes me a lot happier, so that will be my challenge another month.

    Cardiac Hill a few months back when my body was much stronger.

  • Ditch Social Media Sites For 30 Days, Or Limit Yourself To A Few Minutes A Day I spend so much time aimlessly scrolling and I feel I could truly put my time into being more creative – Edit Video’s | Draw | Paint | Write | Sing | Make Clay Ornament’s | Record a Podcast |
  • Write a daily Diary Entry 

    I used to write a lot. *See my blog posts from 2012/13/14* but lately? I’ve stopped. I have a lovely notepad I got in March 2016 and I have around 3 pages full…. So that is what I have chosen to do this month.

I’ll do the other challenges throughout the rest of the year. If you’ve any ideas?? Let me know.

Sound Interpretation Soundscape

My classmates & I were asked to tell the story of the picture below through sound.

When you look at it what do you see and more importantly what do you hear?


I told the story through audio and soundscaping of someone who is constantly on their phone, fed up of hearing the phone buzzing, beeping, and vibrating, and eventually they just take time away from their phone and go outside to take time to themselves and sit outside like the person in the picture.
