Yesterday’s Irish budget coincided with #WorldMentalHealthDay, a global initiative to help break the stigma associated with it and encourage people to reach out and ask for help in times of mental and emotional stress.
The budget saw an increase in health spending of €685m which is meant to allow for an additional 1800 staff across numerous areas, including mental health services.
A step in the right direction, some might say.
Thankfully many of our beloved influencers didn’t miss the fact that it was World Mental Health Day either, a day to support people in times of distress, but more importantly, a day to stay relevant and use a hashtag to ensure your Twitter and Instagram gains exposure and your profile benefits from the goodwill of appearing like a kind, caring and altruistic person.
So, after about a year I’ve finally reached the point where I can share my brand new podcast series – The Project 10 podcast series.
It’s a 10 part series, documentary style, covering a range of topics that I find interesting and who knows, you might too.
Many people claim that online porn has been a driver of technological innovations on the Internet. (Many of those people might be perveted chronic masturbators, but let’s give them second here…)
Public speaking. It’s the biggest fear in the world (apparently). And people always ask me what it’s like to go up on stage and have a room full of people staring out you waiting for you to make them laugh.
Well, I decided to give people a unique insight into the world of stand up comedy, by doing a gig recently at the Comedy Crunch with a GoPro mounted to my head.
So, if you’ve always wanted to know, have a watch. It’s not that bad.
Certainly not as bad as wingsuit jumping or sky diving from space.
Here’s the voicemail that I left for “entertainment” website TMZ.com, after they claimed that Jay Z and Beyoncé put Ireland on the map after having a strong around the Phoenix Park.
I honestly had no idea it would clock up so many hits – and if I’m honest it was done in a rush because myself and Daniella Moyles were rushing to prep the show for the night and everyone else we tried to prank just hung up on us.
Also, every site and paper that featured the story claimed that I’m a DJ. I’m not. At all – presenter yes, DJ no. 😉
Joke of the Day number 8.
What do you call an Austrian man covered in white lemonade?
A White Wine Fritzer.
While out the back of the notorious Hive, a residence in Dunboyne Castle and after consuming some beverages and herbal remedies, smoeone was pouring 7 Up into wine.
The punch line came first, it was a case of working the set up right. I’m not sure if the set up should include something about wine, or is it alright as it?!
Hmmmmmm, more jokes of the day tomorrow.
Yay for jokes.
