Trying To Find The Ideal European Home
Quick word to all you saps who keeps emailing me about PR opportunities, if you really have exciting posts that my audience will love, your posts better start with the words “Hey cunts” and contain the phrase “I am worse than Josef Fritzl for promising publishers exposure for free fucking content” somewhere in the body.
Moving on, I’m loving life out here in Croatia at the moment. The quality of living far exceeds anything that I’ve been used to in my adult years and I want to continue to explore as many places as possible to see which is best for running. I took this picture whilst out running around Marjan Forest Park. It took me up to 109km for the week and I successfully recorded calorific deficits for 6 out of the 7 days this week. Major success!
The problem I’m facing now is that Europe is in lock-down because of fears over immigration. As an immigrant myself here I’ve probably tested the patience of everyone I’ve encountered as I’m too lazy to learn the language and my only understanding of the culture comes from knowing Goran Ivanesevic.
This patriotic spring shit is something that worries me. I will adopt any country as home which isn’t ravaged by sectarianism, I don’t want fucking iron curtains to be erected everywhere. Life is too fucking short to pin your life to a flag.
I grew up hating Catholics as a kid without knowing any or what one was. Fortunately in my teens I embraced punk music and abandoned football and all religious bollocks and as an adult I enjoyed heading down to Dublin to get away from the poisonous atmosphere created by the fanatics on both sides of the divide. Dublin felt positively European and modern and that seemed like a good thing in contrast to all the hateful petty bollocks back home.
It’s ironic that the argument for Brexit is about national sovereignty, yet many of these people bow down to an unelected Pope or a Queen as their figurehead. It’s fucking nuts. I want my to secede from all unions including the European Union. I want personal sovereignty and the freedom to live and work anywhere. For the first time in my life, I can think ‘thank fuck I’m from Northern Ireland’ as it means I can continue to live anywhere here and all I want is freedom.
I don’t give a blind fuck about culture, heritage or tradition. Just because your father did shit a certain way doesn’t mean you have to. Some of the worst people on this planet are extreme nationalists and if you strip back their ideology you’re left with a fucking shell of a human being. And it’s all because they are afraid of admitting that they don’t know who they are. Most of the politicians in the two major parties back in Northern Ireland are good examples of this. Behind the ideology all you have is fear and hatred.
I want to see and run the world and I don’t wanna call anywhere home until I’ve found the right place!
