A ‘Paper Shoot’ camera is a screenless, digital camera consisting of a circuit board, 2 AAA batteries, and an SD card, all encased in a ‘stone paper’ covering. Its purpose is to give you film style photos without the film itself. In fact, you can’t see any of the pictures you take until you upload them to a computer or laptop. I really enjoy the air of mystery of never knowing just how good or bad the image has come out. Even the viewfinder is a simple cut out in the paper, so every photo taken is kind of a gamble until you get used to it.
I do feel that my college experience was especially tumultuous, but maybe I am just being self-centered with that mindset.

Last Sunday, I woke up late. I had 30 minutes to get up and make the train to Dublin for this years Women’s Mini Marathon. I rolled out of bed, had a couple sips of tea, threw on the leggings and t-shirt closest to me, and ran out the door.
Last night, at 4:15 am myself and a few others from work walked our town as the soon began to rise to help break the stigma and raise money for Pieta House.
One of the things that has been keeping me busy has been campaign work for our upcoming referendum in Ireland. Incase you havent heard about it, the referendum follows the 8th amendment in our constitution and whether or not we want to keep it, or, repeal and enable our government to develop a new one.
Just back from my latest adventure, Amsterdam. A city filled with soul. It’s high on the list of any travel lover, and after this trip I could see where it got its popularity.
Monday just passed, I got up at 3am to head to the airport to get a flight to Brussels. It was absolutely freezing when we arrived in Belgium, but we made our way to the hotel to unpack. From there, we headed out to explore the city and get our bearings with the place.
My Canon EOS 200D was a somewhat impulsive buy, but I’ve no regrets. I wanted to invest in a good DSLR for a while now, so yay to a future of better quality filmmaking from me, aye!
