Hello there!! Here I am again, just when you thought you got rid of me….
Recently many things have happened but nothing spectacular. It’s already been two months since we arrived and I finally saw Dublin’s pretty harbour, Grafton Street got to explore the city a little… It delighted us with a modern and young jazz-funk inspired band who were playing and dancing on The Grafton Street. The boys earned at least €60 in 5 minutes, from the sale of CDs with their songs. Cool. We were impressed even more by a guy with no arms that played Sinatra’s “My Way” and other various classics on a wind instrument.
I visited St Stephan’s Green shopping centre on Grafton Street, which is beautiful, it looks like a huge theatre with white balconies….
Irish girls are pretty obsessed with clothes and appearance in general and regularly all wear the same black jacket or coat, the same hair length, hair colour (often brunette like Kate Middleton or bleached highlights)
Recently my cell phone died and today I bought a new one, it took me an entire ten minutes to decide which model I should pick, to switch to another bundle, pay and leave the store. After that I went and destroyed my credit rating in a “few shops” and bought all kinds of stuff. Mostly different variations of little black dresses for work. I have definitely decided not to carry the credit card anymore, I feel remorse and subconsciously cannot seem to get rid of the feeling that “I have to pay 20 bills, I have to be careful…” Now the situation is quite different weekly wages on my monthly balance sheet.
Yesterday I had the chance to chat with a client who works in Google, a German man, who gave me his insights about his experiences of working there. According to him, the working atmosphere is great and healthy, they have four canteens, a gym and swimming pool (I saw them from the Dart). Over 30 nationalities work there and communication is like being on a college campus, with different languages, no one was watching how they come dressed, and no feeling of being assessed superficially. Proof again of what I already knew – the biggest and brightest are the simplest and are not burdened with such trivialities. Only self-conscious people (and diggers) think it is better to have expensive clothes, car etc…
Irish girls are pretty obsessed with clothes and appearance in general and regularly all wear the same black jacket or coat, the same hair length, hair colour (often brunette like Kate Middleton or bleached highlights). There are of course natural red heads, whose hair is beautiful. Come on girls you can do better, give it a little bit of you own character, passion and enthusiasm, be unique, but at the same time trendy with dash of royalty. Don’t just copy every single style and make over of the Royal family. In many occasions during conversation with the other gender, every time I’ve been given the same answer, honestly the guys don’t like it. Simply ask them and you’ll see. When you get ready for the outside world, don’t just look like the main protagonist of a popular MTV show, with a miniskirt that could only be found by searching with a magnifying glass, over powdered in many layers of makeup, with high heels so tall that you barely can make a decent step. Before you go out, you have to ask yourself; what you would like to achieve? What kind of attention you would like gain? You can be sure if you look cheap and without style, that is what you will attract.
One day I “enjoyed” the view of the underwear of some girl on the bus, white panties underneath translucent black tights. Whatever….
So farewell for now, talk to you soon… Bye :)…
