RTE presenter Blathnaid Treacy has opened up about the pressure of her daily life, and how she often becomes overwhelmed with her work at the national broadcaster.
The 28-year-old, who presents TwoTube alongside Stephen Byrne, told the RTE Guide that sometimes her workload can be stressful to manage.
She also explained that leaving college during the economic downturn has been a major contributor to her stress.
“I think it’s our generation – you never switch off. You have to work your backside off to get a job – and the minute you get it you feel you have to work your butt off to keep that job. It’s a big part of why I sometimes get overwhelmed.
“I always say ‘yes’ to things. I think it comes from graduating into the recession – you just have to work harder,” she said.
Ironically, Blathnaid also said that while her workload can be intense, she still makes time for relaxing and enjoying herself.
“Sometimes it can get too much – some weeks I’m working six or seven days and it’s funny because, believe it or not, I’m incredibly lazy.
“I love lying in and sleeping until 12, so there are times I want everyone to leave me alone – I want to watch an episode of Girls, eat chocolate and escape the world,” she said.
