Sockies 17

Sockies, which is short for the Social Media Awards are an annual celebration of the people who are killing it on social media in Ireland and guess who bagged a few nominations? Add this to the fact that the sun has been shining in Kerry, albeit in brief periods but we don't care, we just focus on good news at Avalanche! We are nominated for four awards at the 2017 Social Media Awards.

Best Young Business Person Award

Happy Sunday evening! I just had a great weekend at the MBA’s in Waterford as I was lucky enough to be named Best Young Business Person. It was a fantastic honour to receive such a wonderful award and I truly hope that I can live up to the title in the coming months/years. It was a great ceremony in Dungarvan and I want to say thank you to all the organisers, judges, nominees and to absolutely everybody who was involved in a great event. I have no doubt that next year will be even more of a success!

5 myths about "Computer People"

Stereotypes exist for a reason, they can be used to describe a niche group of people/profession but by their very definition they are an oversimplification and while I see the merit in them it's hard not to take offence when you are grouped into a category you don't necessarily agree with.

Ego & Humility

The ego is an aspect of the human personality that has always intrigued me, it is something that I believe every person on this earth possesses to varying degrees. It is a particularly fickle thing and it can be the difference between failure and success.

Broke but not broken..

As with a lot of my more personal blogs, I am beginning this article somewhat apprehensively because I have been sitting on the subject matter for quite some time, a lot of things you are about to read have only been revealed to a handful of close friends. Irish people have an unhealthy relationship with money at the best of times so it is not easy to admit when you are broke.

Let’s Talk About GamerCon!

Let me be crystal clear with you, I absolutely adore video games. Crash, Sora, Spyro, Blue, Zelda, Yohimitsu, Cloud, Squall, Ryu, Ellie & Joel. The list of heroes who have engaged me for hours on end is nigh on endless. I can lose myself in a modern adventure like “The Last Of Us” because it is truly a work of art, I am an impatient mess waiting for the Crash Bandicoot remake and this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to gaming.

Tony Stark, Iron Man or Jesus?

As with the majority of people born in 90’s Ireland I was raised a Catholic, not by choice but by convenience and mostly because it was the societal norm. God forbid you would be the family with “notions”, they were reserved for that mad uncle/cousin you had in ‘Merica or somewhere like that, the relative that only shows up at Christmas that your mother drags you down the stairs to speak to when you obviously have an epic Crash Bandicoot run going.

Does 5 years make an overnight success?

Success is a strange word, you could organise the most diverse group you could get your hands on right now and you may very well receive 10 different answers. For some people it means getting a degree and a job so they can provide for themselves, for others it simply means providing for their families, as a single man in my twenties with few responsibilities I can honestly tell you that I have no idea what the word means specifically to me.

How to keep life interesting..

We all strive to do our best, make the most of ourselves. Or at least, we should. It's not a competition, but fulfilment is an emotion that tops most others. The sense of achievement, getting that college course, winning that game, passing that test. Regardless of the diversity of background, people who make the effort will find their level.

Be Good In Bed.

First of all, I would like to apologise to those who clicked into this article looking for some Jamie Dornan/50 Shades type of advice, read that terrible writing on your own time people. It’s the internet in 2016, nobody will judge you for it, at least not to your face anyway.

Is Twitter going towards the grave?

There are many things in this wonderful world I will never understand such as men who feel the need to wear a suit that is obviously a cut too large for them, girls on Instagram who use that mirroring app and how Marouane Fellaini is a professional soccer player when he does not seem to know the basic rules of the game.
