My partner and I are supposed to move to Ireland, from the USA, in a month. Still haven't found any housing. Gah!

Anyone know anyone who may be able to help us out? We're both artists/academics, and my partner has a job already at UCD in Dublin. We just need a place to land, even if its temporary. House sitting, apartment, house rental, private rooms, we're open to anything within 1 hour commute to Dublin via public transit.

If you know anyone who could help we would greatly appreciate it! We're almost in despair-mode 😅

I don't have a lot of followers on here, but feel free to boost this post if you're comfortable doing that!

Saying this for whoever needs to hear it.

You are way harder on yourself than others.

You only see everyone else's highlight reel.

This girl was looking so proper at the studio space yesterday.

I hate framing historically oppressive cultural practices as "traditional", e.g. "traditional gender roles". Just because it's "tradition" doesn't mean that it's necessarily good! Some practices rooted in history need to be abolished.
