It was probably a good thing that I jetted off over to the UK one day earlier that I was supposed to. One of my big treats to myself while I was on my little sojourn around the world was five days in Stratford-Upon-Avon, where I would watch five Shakespeare productions in five days. The … Continue reading Chapter 6: North of the Wall.
*You know what this is, admit it. Oops. This whole weekly recap of a trip I took 15 years ago is going well. Here’s a confession: I don’t actually remember too much about my first visit to New York. Possibly because I was staying with the brother of a friend of my Mother’s in New … Continue reading Chapter 5: Dun dun dah dah dun*
Did that heading sound like Lola by The Kinks? Excellent, my work here is done. When I rolled off the plane in New Orleans, after successfully navigating my way from the hostel in Mexico via a stopover in I wanna say Charlotte, I noticed three things. I was hungover. So. Very.

Everything I knew about America I learned from The Simpsons, The … Continue reading Chapter 2: Californiaaaaa (here I commmmmeeee)
Picture it! Sicily, 1912! By which I mean Melbourne, 2004! I was but a wee 21 year old trying to put off reality and grown up decisions by doing an honours year writing about adapting Shakespeare into film. This is of course why I work as a travel agent now. I still have my thesis, … Continue reading Chapter 1: To Deal Or Not To Deal
Exactly one year ago I watched the last episode of Murder, She Wrote, ending seven years of wildly inaccurate recaps of the exploits of the supreme being that is JB Fletcher. In the twelve months that have passed, I tried really hard to find a replacement TV show but commitment issues, mental health issues and … Continue reading One year later…
I got my hair done for the first time since the coronapocalypse yesterday. It was also the longest amount of time I spent on public transport, and only the second time I’ve worn jeans. Weird does not even begin to describe it, although I did get accosted by a lady who wanted to chat about … Continue reading Insomnia and mushrooms
My apartment only has airconditioning in the bedroom, so when summer is +35 degrees for more than three days I retreat to my bedroom with my tablet to reconsider my life choices.
