Ok so I’m going to skip the intro and launch straight into what will probably be the most interesting thing about this post to most students. Snapchat.
I was sent a Snapchat life hack a few weeks ago by my friend Sassy Shelly from the Life Hackable website and I tried it and had no luck. Fortunately my housemate Susie mentioned it today and I retried it, and SUCCESS. So here it is (from http://lifehackable.com/post/56901160743), you can now annoy your friends with pictures of your contorted face in black and white, sepia or negative.
I have literally spent the last half hour sending various pictures in all these tones. If you’re reading this and you’re my friend on the lovely app itself, sorry, not sorry. Also, if like me some of the colours are missing from your colour panel to draw with, just drag the cursor over your image and other colours like black and brown will appear.
Another tip for Snapchat is if you want to add more colours when drawing on your pictures, like black and white, try this one and a half min video. Its easy peasy.
Ok so if you’re still reading this and I haven’t lost you to that last hack, my next tip is about TELEVISION.
If you’re missing the soaps cos the lads have hijacked the tv for the match, or you just haven’t got digital since the aerials stopped working, you’ll be happy to know there’s a website out there streaming all the Irish channels for free. Aer TV (http://www.aertv.ie/) streams RTE1, RTE2, TV3, TG4, 3E, RTE Junior and a few other bits and pieces, and you just flip through them like you do on your t.v. You need never miss an episode of Nationwide again. 🙂
Finally, if you’re planning a day out around the country and have a Tesco Clubcard, it’s worth checking their days out page on their website, which you can find here. They offer free passes to a long list of places like the Zoo, The Guinness Storehouse, The National Wax Museum and Kartmania for just €2 to €3.50 worth of points on your card. There are some serious savings on passes when you consider the price of entry to some of these places, and tokens can be redeemed for normal adult passes as well as student passes. And if you do make plans to visit Dublin or a major city, check out http://www.buseireann.ie/ for their €5 expressway tickets or 5% discount on tickets bought online.
So that’s it for today but I’ll post again before the end of the week, in the mean time you can contact me with ideas or suggestions in the comments. 🙂
