Tim Minchin feels sorry for Pell (and how that has made me feel better)

Last night I went and I watched Tim Minchin‘s “Old Songs New Songs Fuck You Songs” show in Canberra. It was a Christmas present from my parents and our whole family of four went out. We laughed, we sung along (well I did – Mum chose not to sing along to the Pope Song) and … Continue reading Tim Minchin feels sorry for Pell (and how that has made me feel better)

#happyinpineapple

Instagram is a platform with a lot of potential – I’m assuming that most people who use the internet have at the very least heard of it, and probably have had someone shove a phone in their face to show them a photo of an adorable cat or crazy stunt (examples below). I started an … Continue reading #happyinpineapple

Pole dancing, burlesque, & sexy chair

If you’ve ever looked at my instagram, you can see that there are a lot of photos of me in not a whole lot. I’ve been pole dancing for fitness and fun since mid-2018 and I’ve been enjoying it. It’s made me fitter and stronger and I’ve had insane amounts of fun. More than pole … Continue reading Pole dancing, burlesque, & sexy chair

#NaNoWriMo2018 #writersblock #gentlenudge

NaNoWriMo is a tool many writers use to force big word counts – you start a project one the 1st of November (theoretically you’ve been prepping for at least the entire month of PREPtober) and get to at least 50’000 words by the end of the month. That’s 30 days. It’s roughly 1700 words a … Continue reading #NaNoWriMo2018 #writersblock #gentlenudge

Headbutts for the soul

I’m sitting on the couch, laptop across my thighs, staring blankly at the screen thinking about all the things I want to write and all the things I should be writing (there is no overlap btw – I should really be writing stuff that isn’t this). The sunlight is cold through the window and I’m … Continue reading Headbutts for the soul

El Hablador – A Review

Last night, I spent two and a it glorious hours watching Ross Noble dance and twist about the stage, drawing inspiration from the crowd and the poor suckers who came in late for their front-row seats.   If you’ve never seen Ross Noble live, or even viewed him on some of his more Ross-ish appearances … Continue reading El Hablador – A Review

#mentalhealth – Self-care: The power of sleep

Everyone knows how important sleep is. How crummy it is to be tired and how good it can feel to look at the clock on a saturday morning, roll back over into the embrace of your feathered doona and whisper …just five more minutes… and we have doctors and teachers and our parents nagging us. … Continue reading #mentalhealth – Self-care: The power of sleep

Gun Control

I will quickly point out, right off the bat, that I live in Australia. Our last major mass shooting took place in 1996, the year after I was born (more information can be found here). The Port Arthur Massacre was a pretty bloody affair, and up until the 2017 Las Vegas Mass Shooting, it held a record … Continue reading Gun Control
