Where did the sun go, and can it please come back?

Is it cliche to talk about how quickly this summer is going? Because I'm confused as to HOW it is nearly August already. Someone is playing some sort of sick joke. 
I'm back in work full time and it seems as though our Irish "heatwave" is well and truly over, so I'm trying to enjoy my days off as much as possible without the ice cream. A couple of weeks ago I went to the outdoor cinema in Merrion Square to watch Dirty Dancing, where I realized that we're never really told Baby's age. Maybe Patrick Swayze should have left her in the corner until she was legal?! What's the age gap there? Regardless of questionable relationships it was such a nice night, and there's a certain novelty in watching a movie outside. I hope I get to go to a couple more showings! 
I GOT A TATTOO. I wasn't too sure how to segue into that one... 

My first tattoo!! If you've been following this blog for a while I'm sure this comes as no surprise to you (remember this post, anyone?), but I still can't really believe I did it. I'll be doing a post all about the experience and pain and healing and everything soon, so if you have any questions about it do leave them below! 
I've also been talking a lot about this quarter life crisis/life fear situation with a lot of my friends and I think I'm starting to become more OK about not knowing what I want to do with my life. I still have time, I'm young and not even graduated yet!!! I've been considering moving to America in 2015 which is a massive deal for me and just a little bit scary. As much as I'm growing to love Dublin, I do think that I should experience the world and move out (still living at home at 22 is not a good look)! America is pretty far away, so if I don't come back an ~independent woman~ from that I don't know what I'll do!

I've been amazingly, surprisingly, FANTASTICALLY nominated for two awards in the Irish Blog Awards! I've been placed in two different categories; 'Best Personal Blog' and 'Best Lifestyle Blog'. I'm so happy and honored to be considered and placed among such amazing writers. Do take your time to check out all the bloggers listed - they're just brilliant. It's incredibly surreal that people actually recognize my little space on the internet and I will be forever squealing at your comments and appreciation. So, hey, hi, you, reading this, right now, AH. This is COOL. Thanks so much. I seriously love you.

I'll be back soon, talking about that little tattoo I got.
