It’s easy being green: What St. Patricks Day 2015 looked like

Hello y’all!

It feels like ages since I’ve blogged, but that’s probably because it has been ages since I blogged.

What have I been up to? Dance training, starting and finishing Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Orange Is The New Black), job interviews, reading some new fun stuff and celebrating Paddy’s Day. ‘Cause hey, when in Ireland, do as the Irish do.

Last year I spent the 17th of March  on the couch – surrounded by Lemsip, tissues and glasses of flat 7UP (the famous Irish cure-everything). Therefore I decided that this year, everything should be green but my face.

I met up with a friend in town to watch the parade in O’Connell Street, right smack in the middle of Dublin City Center. But the thing that is actually most fun on St. Patricks Day is just watching the green crowd. People who try to walk and   apply temporary tattoos of shamrocks and rainbows and harps to their face at the same time. People who have completely leprechaunized themselves. People who have GoPro’s glued to the green hat they are wearing while holding a selfie stick to be sure to capture every shade of green around. It was pretty unbelievably amazing.

As it was a tad cold and quite hard to see the parade (I saw most of it throw camera screens of people a few rows in front of me), my friend and me decided to watch the last half of the parade on TV, followed by the Irish movie “The War of the Buttons”, a movie I’d totally recommend.

Cheers Paddy.
