Turning 28: A Different Birthday

My birthday was on February 1st. Normally for my birthday I get as many of my friends together as I can and we all go out for a mad night out, generally on the weekend closest to the day of my birthday. That didn’t happen this year.

June 2020 Update!

Well hello there, and welcome back to the blog — Yes I disappeared for what? 3 weeks, or thereabouts? To be truthful with you, I ran out of ideas. Running a blog on a regular basis can be difficult, especially when you throw in a full time job into the mix, as well as aContinue reading “June 2020 Update!”

The Corona Chronicles: The Final Countdown

Welcome back to the blog! Today I am writing probably one of my last Corona Chronicles posts, because while lockdown might not be over, I am going back to work as of this coming Monday…

The Corona Chronicles Part 4: One Month Later…

It’s been the guts of a month since my last blog post, and well I haven’t really been doing much, because y’know… lock down and all that jazz.

As of Saturday, March 28th 2020, Ireland is in lock-down! We all knew this was coming. The Taoiseach ( for all my non-Irish readers that’s what we call our Prime-Minister, pronounced ‘tee-shock’) hinted at it earlier in the week, and did an emergency broadcast last night confirming it. Today is my 4th day off work/self-isolating,Continue reading “The Corona Chronicles Part 3: Lock-Down”

The Corona Chronicles Part 2: Stay Safe

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

It’s been a while since I last checked in with you wonderful folks… I stopped blogging for a few weeks to do some painting, and then when I stopped painting, I forgot to come back to blogging, but alas, here I am! Why now? Because the world is starting to spin into an even darkerContinue reading “Happy St. Patrick’s Day!”

The 100 Happy Days Challenge // Dean Kealy Blog

When I look back at 2019, all I can see is a shitty 12 months. It had some positive moments, and some wins, but overall, it was a terrible year! I want to try and be a bit more positive in 2020. How? Yesterday I was watching YouTube, like I do most days, and IContinue reading “The 100 Happy Days Challenge // Dean Kealy Blog”
