I called Montreal home for 6 months and survived the depths of winter. Here are my first impressions.
It’s not everyday you turn 23 in Mexico. I decided to write about it. Olay!
Hot off the press
A 10 year high school reunion, an epic snow season, celebrating love and consuming some great thought-provoking content. This is what I’ve been up to for the past few months…
Many bisexual and pansexual people have experienced biphobia and bi erasure in their lives, and seeing it play out in the media and in the comments section of social media, was a sad reminder and reflection on the long way to go before genuine respect and understanding are built in Australia.
Reunited with families, a trip to the Gong and going slow. November thank you for reminding me of all the important and beautiful things in my life.
Nothing tastes quite like the sip of a cold pint freshly poured or a long black delicately placed in front of you. Hello easing of restrictions, hello sunshine and uh hello hayfever!
Sometimes enjoying the simple things like a drink on the back deck makes you realise just how good you’ve got it, despite the hard times.
I interrupt your broadcast of depressing news and media to focus on some joyful moments from the past two months! Thank you to everyone who has made July and August so special.
What a bittersweet way to end what was a great month, a lockdown which means I’m separated from my boyfriend in Sydney and friends in Wollongong.

Though I’m really grateful for the incredibly supportive people who have reminded me of who I am, what I contribute and how I am valued…. it’s a journey afterall.

For the shortest month of the year, February sure threw a lot our way.

New year, new me! Just kidding, I quite like the me I’m becoming and turning into. The beginning of a new year is the perfect time to reflect and set goals for the year, and it’s pretty incredible to see how much I’ve grown and how far I’ve come in 12 months. It’s usually a … Continue reading These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things: JANUARY 2021
You could mistake my Patricia for a 17 year old anxiously and eagerly awaiting their 18th birthday. Her energy and excitement is infectious, balanced by Pop’s mellow and calm presence.
