8 things you should do instead of watching another abortion debate tonight

It’s never too late to figure out what GDPR is.

THERE IS GOING to be another debate on the 8th Amendment tonight with Prime Time stepping up to the plate. Last week’s debate on Claire Byrne Live didn’t exactly go down well with a lot of people and given that a lot of people aren’t swayed by TV debates, we have to ask is there any need for another debate at all?

Here are 8 things you should do instead of watching the debate tonight. You know, to save your sanity and all that.

1. Scream into the void.

The referendum is on Friday and if you’re someone with a uterus, you’re probably sick to death of having your bodily autonomy debated for the umpteenth time. Screaming into the void us both cathartic and therapeutic and nobody will judge you. Banging your head off a wall is also recommended.

2. Do some baking.

Get your Cillian Murphy apron on and head into the kitchen and bake a cake. It can be whatever kind of cake you want but make sure it takes about an hour. You’ll find beating the eggs and flour together very soothing. Plus at the end of it all, instead of emotional anguish, you have cake!

3. Catch up on the Handmaid’s Tale

It’s a good reflection of the laws in Ireland at the moment. Plus it’ll make you less depressed then being a woman in Ireland at the moment. Every cloud and all that.

4. Learn what the Seanad does.

I don’t know about you but it’s been a while since I did CSPE and I feel like a good hour trawling through Wikipedia might bring me a bit closer to understanding the purpose of the Seanad. It’s never too late to learn.

5. Research some border solutions for Brexit.

The British government clearly aren’t putting enough thought into how to fix the border problem. If we all give an hour to research what could work, I’m sure we could figure it out?

6. Go see your grandparents.

Yes you’ve been putting it off to avoid a potentially awkward conversation but you might as well go visit them. They’re your grandparents and they probably have sweets and tea. It’s a win win.

7.  Go out on the lash.

Yes it’s only Tuesday but it’s going to be a long week. Your head will hurt from all the debating anyway so you might as well enjoy yourself.

8. Figure out what GDPR is.

It’s an important thing which is coming in on Friday too so you might want to actually read some of those privacy policy emails that have been flooding your inbox.
